The Joe Biden Administration, US State Department, Secretary Anthony Blinken is officially supporting TPLF, a terrorist group in Northen Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa.

Secretary Blinken condemned the distruction of the bridges into Tigray and others impedements to access. However, the US government and Secretary Blinken kept silent in condemning the TPLF, the terrorist group who has been destroying the bridges into Tigray and impedements to access in the region.
This clearly shows that the US government and the Joe Biden administration is officially supporting the terrorist group (TPLF) and our enemies in the region. This is a clear message to the people of Ethiopian and the nations in the region. The US Administration and Secretsry Blinken is abusing their offices and powers to pressurize the Ethiopian government, which is unacceptable and repeatdly rejected by the Ethiopian People.
