Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) said the NATO world leaders he’s met with this week are privately telling him they’re concerned about President Biden and his ability to lead the country.

“All those NATO leaders are here on the Hill as you know,” Johnson told Fox News’s Laura Ingraham on Wednesday evening. “These foreign leaders are coming in, prime ministers, heads of state and they are telling us privately that they are deeply concerned.”

“A weak America is bad for the whole world,” he continued.

Johnson joined “The Ingraham Angle” as concerns around Biden’s capabilities to lead the country and beat former President Trump in the election this fall persist.

“It’s been an incredible thing to watch on Capitol Hill. The Democrats are in total disarray; they don’t know what to do,” Johnson said. “They don’t have a Plan B, but they know they’ve got a serious problem.”

In the nearly two weeks since Biden’s poor debate performance sparked panic among Democrats, he and his campaign have held rallies and sat for interviews in an attempt to win back voters.

The president delivered remarks at the NATO summit, which marks the 75th anniversary of the organization’s forming.

The event was seen as an important milestone for Biden as the national and international conversation continued to focus on his demeanor and mental sharpness.

Biden has sent support internationally for two wars during his tenure. He is a major ally of Ukraine as it continues its war with Russia.

Biden has also supported Israel and its efforts to defeat Hamas, the Palestinian militant group in Gaza, but has since taken a more restricted tone with the country as the death toll exceeds 38,000.

As of Wednesday evening, nine Democrats in the House and one in the Senate have publicly called for Biden to withdraw.

Earlier Wednesday, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) urged her colleagues to allow the president to focus on the NATO conference.

“I’ve said to everyone, let’s just hold off, whatever you’re thinking, either tell somebody privately, but you don’t have to put that out on the table until we see how we go this week,” Pelosi said.
