Brandon on Sunday held a press conference in Hiroshima, Japan after meeting with Volodymyr Zelensky, Japanese PM Kishida Fumio and South Korean President Yoon Suk-Yeol.
Brandon’s press conference on Sunday was a total disaster even though he called on a list of pre-approved reporters.
80-year-old Brandon rambled incoherently about taxes, global warming and F-16s while answering a reporter’s question.
He also took credit for President Trump’s work.
In 2017, Trump revived “The Quad” – a dialogue between Australia, Japan, India and the US to counter China’s aggression and growing power.
Brandon claimed he convinced India, Australian and Japan to form the Quad.
“I doubt many people…would’ve said that two years after being elected, I’d be able to convince India, Australia, Japan, and the United States to form an organization called the Quad,” Brandon said.
SHOCK: Brandon told the leaders of the G7 that he convinced Australia, Japan, and India to form an organization called the Quad. Prime Minister Kishida had to remind him that Trump actually put the organization together. Oops…pic.twitter.com/YUvnowdtU0

Brandon did not establish the Quad.
India, Japan, Australia and US came together for the first time in December 2004, as part of a tsunami relief working group.
Thereafter Shinzo Abe and Dick Cheney took the initiative forward, and the QUAD came about in 2007. Abe was the man who envisioned it.

Brandon hobbled across the South Lawn and disappeared without answering any q
