this week Two major election promises to President Joe Biden can be reported. The massive infrastructure package, to modernize the often outdated infrastructure of the United States, increase employment after Corona, and a staggering $3.5 billion climate and welfare package will likely be presented to Congress. Fighting Republicans and Democrats who don’t quite agree with themselves can decide whether Biden will be successful or unsuccessful as president.
introduction to This week wasn’t perfect. In recent weeks, opinion polls on Biden have plummeted, including being badly battered by the disastrous manner in which the United States withdrew its forces from Afghanistan. In June, 56 percent of voters thought Biden did a good job as president, while 40 percent thought he did a bad job. Figures from last week show 43 percent think he’s doing a good job, while 53 percent think he’s doing a bad job.
no head In the modern era, the crash in the polls has been as dramatic as Biden this summer. It is almost free fall. It is also worth noting that a Harvard Harris poll showed that 48% of voters favor Donald Trump, and more than 46% for Biden. The numbers show he leans more than most in Donald’s favour, especially in coups. That doesn’t bode well for by-elections in just over a year, an election likely to result, by those numbers, in a Republican majority in the House and Senate. Thus, Biden’s working conditions are almost impossible.
is both The foreign policy and domestic political defeats Biden now faces. The Delta type of coronavirus is killing again among the unvaccinated in the United States. And while Biden was the vaccine chief, the pandemic is now affecting him, as the one responsible — also for the lives of the unvaccinated Republicans who have made medicine a matter of political recognition. And last week, Congress halted an announced police reform — one that had flared in its sails due to the George Floyd assassination and the Black Lives Matter movement. This week could be crucial to see if Biden passes his countercyclical policies, and could be the Franklin D. Roosevelt of our time. Or if he risks failing.
Biden’s reputation A magician with diplomatic abilities, who could make his way through the corridors of both the Senate and the House of Representatives, received a powerful bullet in the arm. The same is true of his reputation as a seasoned foreign politician and one of those in Washington who know the world best. The withdrawal from Afghanistan was not just a political disaster, it was a public relations disaster that was as humiliating to the United States as Vietnam in 1975. 20 years of war proved a waste.
This month News of the decision to begin confronting China’s expansion into Asia raises doubts about Biden’s relationship with multilateralism. The position of France, a close ally of the United States, when Australia canceled a major submarine contract with France, and instead signed a contract with the United States and Britain, as the art of a diplomatic statesman, will not be included in textbooks. In his speech to the United Nations last week, Biden promised that “brutal wars” would now be replaced by the United States’ “brutal diplomacy.” Was diplomacy over and over, Biden meant by that term, as many believe, or did he mean ruthless diplomacy rather than running behind the backs of close allies? The world stopped looking in justified wonder.
Biden’s most important contribution In the history of the United States it was preventing Donald Trump from continuing as President of the United States. He did. But that alone doesn’t make him a great boss.
