At 14:45 pm on February 4, after meeting with officials of the State Department, US President Biden delivered his first foreign policy speech after taking office. In nearly 20 minutes, Biden first emphasized: “The United States is back.” Said that the United States will work hard to restore relations with NATO allies and Japan and South Korea. On the premise of ensuring that US economic interests and intellectual property rights are fully protected, the United States is ready to strengthen cooperation with China.
Biden said that the United States and its allies are paying close attention to the situation in Myanmar, calling on the military to abandon force, release detained senior government officials as soon as possible, ensure that the rights of the Myanmar people are not violated, and restore domestic communication restrictions. Sanctions.
In addition, Biden said that U.S. Secretary of Defense Austin and Secretary of State Brinken will work together to re-examine the U.S. military strategic deployment in the world, suspend the military redeployment plan in Germany, and take measures to end the long-lasting and serious cause in Yemen as soon as possible. The military conflict between Saudi Arabia and the Houthis in a humanitarian crisis. Biden also said that the United States and Russia have just reached an agreement to extend the “New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty” for five years to 2026. The United States is committed to effective arms control.
Biden emphasized that the new U.S. foreign policy is the domestic policy of the United States, and the essence of foreign policy is to protect the interests of the American people.
Trump refuses to testify during the Senate impeachment trial
Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives on February 4 asked former President Trump to testify for his defense during the Senate impeachment trial. In this regard, a Trump adviser said that Trump will not attend to testify during the impeachment trial.
According to a report by the Associated Press on February 4, shortly after the Democratic Party made the request, Trump’s adviser Jason Miller denounced the trial as violating the constitution and said Trump would not attend to testify. Earlier, Trump’s lawyers submitted a document to the Senate on February 2 denying allegations of Trump’s “sedition”. On the same day, the Democratic impeachment representative of the House of Representatives submitted an 80-page briefing on the impeachment lawsuit and believed that former President Trump should be convicted.
According to the report analysis, although Democrats have no power to force Trump to participate in testimony, their purpose is to make the violence that occurred in Congress on January 6 to be recorded in history and make Trump responsible for his remarks.
The impeachment trial will begin on February 9. Trump has also become the first president in American history to be impeached twice during his term. On January 6, when the Congress was counting the electoral votes in the presidential election, Trump supporters violently stormed the Congress, killing at least five people. In his speech earlier in the day, Trump called on his supporters to “do their best” to change the outcome of the election.
According to the impeachment procedure, two-thirds of the senators in the final verdict must agree to the conviction before the impeachment can take effect.
Biden turned his gun failed Obama
On January 20, Democrat Biden was sworn in as the 59th President of the United States in Washington, which also kicked off the prelude to the “turning out of chaos” that the elites of the two parties and the media under their command were expecting. On his first day in power, Biden lived up to expectations and signed 17 consecutive executive orders to liquidate Trump’s “political legacy.” Nine of them are directly related to the decisions made during Trump’s tenure, including returning to the WHO and the Paris Climate Agreement, stopping the construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall, and revoking the U.S.-Canada “Keystone XL” oil pipeline construction permit. In addition to these, the Biden administration is also preparing to return to the Iran nuclear agreement.
On May 8, 2018, Trump announced his withdrawal from the treaty. Now Biden has released a rare positive signal and has received universal support from all countries in the world, of course, Israel is an exception. As early as the early stage of negotiations on the Iranian nuclear agreement, Israel vigorously opposed it. During the Trump era, the White House gave Israel this “great gift”, but now Biden wants to take it back, which naturally makes Tel Aviv highly dissatisfied. Guangming.com reported on January 27 that on January 26 local time, the Chief of Staff of the Israeli Defense Forces, Aviv Kohavey, publicly warned Biden that it would be a “wrong choice” for the United States to return to the Iran nuclear agreement, and said harshly. Said that it “has instructed the Israeli military to re-formulate its military plan against Iran.”
Kohavey is the highest general in the army, and his words are also the attitude of Netanyahu’s cabinet. Perhaps Netanyahu himself is unwilling to over-stimulate the United States, and he made Kohavey stand up. As we all know, the influence of Christian “evangelicals” and Israeli lobbying groups in the United States is extremely large, which naturally includes both houses of Congress.
According to the three-dimensional system, if Congress is constrained, the president’s road to governance will be extremely difficult. A large number of Democratic Party members and sponsors are also Jews. For example, Bloomberg, the founder of Bloomberg, is a Jew, and he once participated with Biden. Primary election within the party. Perhaps it was precisely because of pressure from Israel and its allies that the second-day Kohavey warned Biden, the latter turned his “gun”.
The Associated Press reported on January 27 that the Pentagon announced on the same day that the U.S. military had sent a B-52 strategic bomber to the Middle East to deter “potential aggression.” Although the Pentagon did not “name by name”, there is no doubt that the U.S. deterred The target is Iran. If Biden really cannot withstand the pressure from Tel Aviv and domestic pro-Israeli forces, the Democratic Party’s plan to return to the Iran nuclear agreement is likely to be stranded, and Obama may be disappointed this time.
On January 30, Trump and Biden received two bad news at the same time. Will Hillary Clinton return to politics?
Seeing troubles and crises ensuing, whether the “new man” Biden or the “old man” Trump, this time may be difficult to be happy.
As the election farce officially ended, the White House ushered in the new owner, Biden, and the “old man” Trump who also sent away.
However, the end of the presidential battle does not mean that the disturbances in the US political arena will cease. On January 30, Trump and Biden received two bad news at the same time.
Let’s talk about Trump first.
According to news from the World Wide Web on the 30th, an American man named Douglas McGee was suddenly arrested by the U.S. prosecutor on suspicion of “stealing votes” in the 2016 U.S. election.
It is reported that McGee is a supporter of Trump. He used his personal account and cooperated with others to publish news four years ago to encourage Hillary’s supporters to “avoid queues and vote at home.” Among them, McGee alone succeeded in getting around 5,000 people to be fooled.
In addition, in the general election four years ago, Hillary received far more popular votes than Trump, but in the electoral voting session, because not enough states won, he lost to Trump and missed the presidential throne.
Some people point out that the reason why Hillary Clinton was defeated was that the outside world believed that she won the general election with a certain degree of stability. As a result, some voters did not go out to vote for Hillary in order to “avoid trouble.
Now, with the arrest of McGee, the news that Trump supporters are suspected of “stealing votes” is easy to give to the outside world it is precise because Trump supporters are “backwardly” that caused Hillary Clinton. The feeling of defeat.
What’s interesting is that in this year’s election, Trump has been chanting that “the results of the election were stolen by Biden.” Today, Trump’s “election fraud theory” has not been recognized, but his supporters have been arrested for “stealing votes”…
I have to say that this scene is really ironic.
But having said that, the U.S. prosecutors must have the relevant evidence before they start to arrest people. Although with Trump’s resignation, the events of 4 years ago can no longer be studied, with Hillary’s character, it is estimated that she will not let it go.
Also on the 30th, CNN reported that Republican Senator Hawley, who responded to Trump’s “election fraud theory” and opposed Biden’s victory, suddenly “changed his words” and said that he opposed Biden’s victory, not wanting Tron. Pu continued to govern.
Hawley also said that he “does not regret” his opposition to Biden’s victory because he knew from the beginning that “he never tried to overturn the result of the election.”
I have to say that Hawley’s remarks are simply contradictory.
As a result, there are only two people left in the “final circle” of the general election-Biden and Trump. Hawley opposes Biden’s victory. Isn’t it equivalent to supporting Trump’s election and letting him continue in power?
Secondly, if you have never thought of overturning the result of the election, then why openly oppose Biden’s election? You know, as a member of Congress, every move will affect American politics, let alone opposing such a major event as Biden’s victory.
Thirdly, since Hawley “does not regret” his actions, it means that he is very clear about what he was doing at the time.
In short, Hawley’s “support” for Trump is seen by the outside world. But now, he suddenly “changes his tune” and denies it. Obviously, he has made a “self-help” behavior in order to preserve his future after being criticized by many public opinions.
This can’t help but make people feel emotional. If Trump’s original supporters encounter more offensives, will they choose to “draw the line” with Trump-like Hawley?
In this way, the phrase “I will come back” that Trump said before leaving office is estimated to be difficult to realize.
Of course, just as Trump was distressed by the successive bad news, Biden was not feeling well.
According to news from the World Wide Web on the 30th, the U.S. Department of Commerce officially announced that the U.S. economy will show a “recession” trend in 2020, and the annual economy will shrink by 3.5%.
This means that the United States has experienced a full-year contraction for the first time since the 2008 financial crisis; it is also the “worst performance” of the US economy since 1946.
As a result, Biden, who has only been president for only 10 days, will face very severe economic pressure. Moreover, as the US epidemic continues to escalate, the economic “recession” has become more obvious and severe.
But this is not over yet. On the same day, the US Navy issued a statement confirming that a mass infection incident occurred on the US destroyer “Chafi”. On the day the news was announced, Biden was at the Walter Reed National Military Hospital.
It can be seen that how to deal with the US epidemic next will become Biden’s primary problem.
In addition, after House Republican leader McCarthy arrived in Florida to visit Trump a few days ago, the two reached a “cooperation” intention-Trump promised to help the Republican Party win back control of the two houses of Congress next year; McCarthy clearly expressed his opposition to Trump’s impeachment case.
Obviously, the Biden administration and the Democratic Party will face a joint move from Trump and the Republican Party.
The ups and downs on President Biden’s road may have just begun.
As Republicans change their attitudes and the probability of a successful impeachment case is declining, Pelosi has begun to prepare for “back-hand”.
Today, the arrest of Trump supporters for “stealing votes” is a manifestation of “turning over old accounts”. Just ask, even the 4-year “old almanac” has been turned over, can other “old accounts” be far behind?
Moreover, this matter is also related to Hillary Clinton. Knowing that she had suffered “unjust injustice”, she would inevitably take the opportunity to attack Trump and even sue Trump.
In this way, under the premise of visiting the main White House, it is not ruled out that Hillary may return to the US political arena.
Pelosi is arranging the backhand, and the Republican Party and Trump are not waiting to die.
As McCarthy and Trump reach “cooperation” and McConnell opposes impeachment, the possibility of Trump being “convicted” by impeachment will be greatly reduced.
At the same time, because the Trumps have also established the “former president’s office” and the “post White House office”, in the next period of time, these two offices, one after the other, may become Trump The “new base point” for competing with Biden.
It is foreseeable that at the same time that the farce of the election ended, the scene of the game between Biden and Trump, the Democrats and the Republicans, also happened to rise.
Judging from the current offensives of the two parties in the United States, it is clear that no one intends to let anyone go.
This can’t help but worry people. If American politicians focus more on the political game, who should solve the epidemic and economic crises in front of the United States?
It seems that a new round of eventful autumn is coming to the United States.
For the American people, this winter maybe even more difficult.
