US media: Biden is failing as president


Joe Biden's recent interview with an ABC journalist, as well as his fall on the plane's ramp, suggests that the current American president is struggling to cope with his duties. The difficult relations of the United States with China, Russia and European allies also play a negative role, writes The Wall Street Journal.


Biden’s cabinet is being tested not only by large international players, but also by a number of less significant challenges to the dominant role of the United States in the world. Thus, threats of a missile strike on Washington from Tehran are heard, North Korea is preparing for a new test of long-range missiles, the Afghan Taliban (banned in Russia) is threatening to establish "Islamist rule" after the withdrawal of US troops from the country, activities related to ISIS (an organization banned in the Russian Federation) detachments, suppression of democratic forces is growing in Belarus, the power of the military junta in Myanmar is still strong. All these failures can be partly attributed to the shortcomings of the external policy Joe Biden.

The situation is aggravated by the fact that Moscow and Beijing are confident in the imminent and inevitable decline of the United States, and it will not be easy to convince these countries of the opposite to the current presidential administration.

Relations with a number of key allies in the EU are also poor. This is expressed, in particular, in Washington's threats of sanctions measures to legal entities supporting the construction of Nord Stream 2. Moreover, immersed in her economic problems and in the fight against coronavirus, Europe is not capable of actively supporting the United States.

Another problem is that the Biden cabinet is not committed to building alliances by liberalizing trade rules in world markets to strengthen the United States' network of allies. Democrats (as well as Republicans before) are not ready for trade preferences to build a world order based on US superiority.

Many expected that with the departure of Donald Trump on the international scene, there would be detente, but the situation in relations between the leading countries, on the contrary, worsened, the newspaper concluded.

    There will be no detente, because it is not Trump and Biden who run America, but other people from the United States who feel like a "world government." They are escalating, as it was in the 1940s.

      Vladimir Volfovich can fall as much as he wants. He is not the head of state.

          Wait? Let's go. Gerald Ford on the plane - it's becoming a tradition for you there.



          Bush Sr. slashed off a trouser pair of Japanese Prime Minister Kiito Miyazawa. Sushi hasn't gone.



          I gave it straight to my knees.
          They threw shoes at the younger Bush.



          Then there were pretzels and bicycles twice. Matsal Angela Merkel.



          Further more. Everyone thought it was ̶н̶а̶.̶.̶.̶.̶o̶, and this is the President of the United States. Nobody shook hands.



          Obama Raul Castro dried



          Well, Bill Clinton, where is it without him. At the ceremony in memory of Martin Luther King, the poor fellow fell asleep. Apparently Monica drove around the office all night. And, the guy behind the podium almost fell asleep from zeal.



          Well, something like that so far.

              In fact, the Head of the Russian State goes in for sports in his spare time. And there anything can happen. Your bush flew over the front wheel of the bicycle, it is cut out with the face of a spark.

    Again they let the dust in their eyes. He copes perfectly well, he will sign what orders and laws are necessary to whom, take all the negative on himself, and delegate powers to those who would not have been elected in the elections, without any consequences for themselves, so that everything is as it should be.
    And this does not bode well for us ...

    The President in the States is not a problem. Will end this quickly find another. The main thing is that the country does not limp and stumble. The growth of the US economy has been at around 3% for several years now.
    How about this indicator in Russia?
    So it turns out that in the Russian Federation it seems like the president is cheerful, and the country is barely growing.
    The question is whether the country exists, for the president or for the people?
    Putin decided that for him.
    In three years, the United States will have a new president. In the Russian Federation they will find a reason to laugh at him, instead of starting to WORK as they work there.
