Osama bin Laden’s Donald Trump-obsessed niece Noor has branded Joe Biden ‘frail, weak and incapacitated’ – and claimed someone else is running the US behind the scenes.
Speaking as she protested the president’s meeting with Vladimir Putin in Geneva on Wednesday, Noor bin Ladin told DailyMail.com: ‘Biden does not represent America.’
‘In the words of [French President Emmanuel] Macron last week, Biden brings America “back into the club”.
‘This club of “leaders” do not have the interests of their respective populations at heart, but rather are intent on representing the interests of the ruling class.
‘Biden is a weak figure, but I don’t believe he is in charge of the United States right now.
‘From his many gaffes including repeatedly confusing Syria and Libya, to his inability to hold a joint press conference with President Putin – not to mention the lists of pre-planned reporters to call on – it is clear something is not as is being portrayed.
‘This overseas trip made it all the more clear on the world stage that he is a frail, incapacitated man – and somebody else is running affairs behind the scene.’
Bin Ladin is from the Saudi-born bin Laden family, though her part of the family spells its last name ending in ‘-in’ instead of ‘-en.’
She has been outspoken in recent months in her support for Trump and other Republicans.
Bin Ladin told DailyMail.com that she believes Biden’s predecessor would have handled the summit differently.
‘He is a firm leader who puts the interests of his country and its people first and foremost,’ she said of Trump.
‘But as he’s said and proven by the many successful dealings he’s had with other nations, America First does not mean America alone.
‘Just look at previous pictures of President Trump at G7 and other international summits, and compare those with Joe Biden.
‘President Trump projects strength. Joe Biden projects weakness.’
Bin Laden said she thought America will see Trump ‘lead again,’ but added that she was concentrating her energies on fighting the November 2020 election result.
She said: ‘I am very much focused on the rectification of the 2020 elections first and foremost, paying close attention to the full forensic audit currently taking place in Arizona,’ she told DailyMail.com.
Republicans have claimed that Biden’s election victory was tainted by voter fraud, but the courts have rejected the allegations after lawyers acting for Trump offered no substantive proof to back up their claims.
Trump has reportedly been telling confidantes that he believes he will be reinstated to the presidency in August – though there is no legal or constitutional mechanism to enable this to take place.
Bin Ladin spoke after she was snapped on a boat on Lake Geneva on Wednesday brandishing a giant flag saying ‘Trump won.’
Bin Ladin, who is a Swiss national, was seen in a boat on Lake Geneva on Wednesday holding up a large sign which read ‘Trump won.’
Video circulating online shows bin Ladin being questioned by Swiss authorities, although no action was taken against her.
Bin Ladin organized a protest ‘flotilla’ on Lake Geneva that included other supporters of the former president.
She told DailyMail.com that police and military boats threatened to take her into custody unless she put down the pro-Trump signs.
Before the election, Noor bin Ladin wrote an open letter saying America needs to keep Trump at the helm to help restore prosperity and liberty.
‘With President Trump at her helm, America stands a chance of restoring her principles, pride, independence and true place in the world as a beacon for liberty and hope for all,’ she wrote in the letter that she posted on her site in September.
‘This to me, is what “Make America Great Again” means. Looking back at your country’s foundation, and preserving what makes it truly GREAT.
‘But also knowing that the best is yet to come.
‘All the above achievements will be torpedoed with a Biden/Harris presidency, and the dream of America’s enemies to see her weak and on her knees would be fulfilled.’
She warned America that it was ‘at the very edge of a precipice’.
‘America, you are at the very edge of the precipice. Please wake up! Take hold! Fight for your country, and be proud of your roots! Uphold your values,’ she wrote.
‘Stand for your flag and your anthem. Defend your history. Don’t relent in the face of those who seek to re-write it to serve their narrative and justify the destruction of your nation.
‘You have much to cherish and protect for your sake, and ours.’
She praised Trump, listing the ways she believed he had ‘made the world a much safer place since taking office’.
Noor bin Ladin and her two sisters Wafah and Najia were raised in Switzerland after their parents’ divorce.
Her father Yeslam bin Ladin is an older half-brother of terrorist leader Osama bin Laden and her mother is Carmen Dufour, a Swiss author.
Yeslam and Osama shared the same father – Mohammed bin Laden, who made his fortune in the construction business. He is said to have had more than 50 children.
Osama bin Laden was reportedly the ‘black sheep of the family.’ In 2001, he masterminded the September 11 terrorist attacks in New York, Washington, DC, and Pennsylvania that killed nearly 3,000 people.
Noor says her father has played no role in her life after a messy divorce from her mother in 1988.
Her mother released the book ‘Inside the Kingdom: My Life in Saudi Arabia’ in 2004, revealing what life was like inside the Bin Laden family.
The bin Laden family’s construction empire was built thanks to close ties with the ruling Saudi royal family.
But the family empire fell apart due to the rise of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the kingdom’s de facto ruler.
Biden and Putin met for four hours on Wednesday at an 18th century lakeside villa. Security was tight and access extremely limited to areas around the summit site.
Biden told reporters after Wednesday’s meeting in Geneva that the two men sat across the table at their meeting site talking through each issue ‘in excruciating detail.’
At the end of that, ‘we looked at each other like, “Ok, what next?”’ Biden said.
‘We had covered so much.’
