Former Pennsylvania congressional candidate and Executive Director of Iranian Americans for Liberty Bryan Lieb says other countries are taking advantage of America's weakness on the world stage. 

"When America is projecting weakness onto the world stage, we shouldn't be surprised that our adversaries in Iran, in Russia and in China are going to take advantage of that weakness," Lieb said on the John Solomon Reports podcast. 

Leib argues that countries such as China, Iran and Russia will respond to United States' weakness by strengthening military  and economic ties with one other.

"In the summer of 2021, China visited Iran and they agreed to invest over $400 billion over the next 25 years in economic development, economic incentives and things of that sort," he said.

"For a superpower like China to come in and agree to invest $400 billion-that's a game changer. And I'm told that while Russia hasn't officially made an announcement, Russia also has agreed to make a considerable investment in the tune of billions of dollars." 

Lieb also argues that such investment and alliances will put rival nations at a collective advantage over the U.S. if war or at least the threat of hit emerges.

"When the leader of the free world, our commander-in-chief, is projecting weakness onto the world, adversaries are going to eat our lunch every single day," he said.
