There’s nothing worse than when people don’t have their own ideas and try to pass something off as their own.
We see it all the time in movies. There’s one studio whose name escapes me, literally makes movies that other studios made the previous year with different names.
Of course, while that is bad, it’s not as bad as someone that the world is thinking about giving nuclear launch authority to. Joe Biden is a mess, and it’s showing before he even “takes office”.
Presumptive president-elect Joe Biden spent the entirety of the campaign attacking President Donald Trump’s “America first” approach to both foreign and domestic policy.
But in an interview with The New York Times published Wednesday, the Democrat introduced a new tone on how he views the international landscape and how the country will approach its geopolitical adversaries should he be inaugurated next month.
Biden spoke to columnist Thomas Friedman about a number of topics, including the possibility of negotiating with a GOP-run Senate, his plans for a new stimulus bill and how he would deal with the country’s adversaries.
The interview was conducted under the assumption from both parties that Biden has won the election, which is in fact still contested.
The 78-year-old embraced being crowned the winner of the election and told The Times he has big plans for the country both at home and abroad.
He said he would go back to the drawing board regarding relations between the U.S. and China, and that he would re-enter the Iran nuclear deal and end sanctions on the world’s largest state sponsor of Islamic terrorism, depending on a number of factors.
Biden then said something stunning, which goes against everything he has claimed to stand for throughout the campaign.
He invoked Trump’s “America first.”
Regarding China and trade, Biden seemed to embrace Trump’s policies, which have drawn the ire of Democrats and foreign governments for years.
“I want to make sure we’re going to fight like hell by investing in America first,” Biden told Friedman.
