John Kerry Claims Joe Biden “Literally Had Not Been Aware” US-Australia Submarine Deal Would Anger France (VIDEO)

Special Climate Envoy John Kerry on Monday sat down for an interview with French TV hosts and gave a rare glimpse of a behind-the-scenes look into the Biden Regime.

Kerry told the interviewers that Joe Biden had no idea about the fallout with the French from the US-Australian submarine deal.

The government of French President Macron announced last month it was recalling their ambassadors to the United States and Australia for consultations in the wake of a defense agreement with the U.S., Australia and the United Kingdom that shut out France and cancelled a multi-billion dollar submarine deal between France and Australia.

This is the first time France has recalled its U.S. ambassador in the well over 200 years of close relations dating to France’s support for the American Revolution.

France was angry after they learned about Joe Biden’s unilateral decision to freeze France out of the deal with Australia.

France learned about the deal in the media.

Joe Biden didn’t even contact France about the deal ahead of time, a move the country’s Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Drian blasted as “unpredictable.”

John Kerry said Joe Biden had no idea the submarine deal with Australia would anger France.

“And President Biden asked me about it, and I told him and expressed the–-” Kerry said before being interrupted by the interviewer.

“You told Joe Biden that it was not the right- –?” the interviewer said before being cut off by John Kerry.

“He asked me. He said, what’s the situation? And I explained exactly. He was — he had not been aware of that. He literally had not been aware of what had transpired. And I don’t want to go into the details of it, but suffice it to say that the president — my president, is very committed to strengthening the relationship and making sure that this is a small event of the past and moving on to the much more important future,” Kerry said.
