Russian website published an article on January 22 that the American society had been torn apart by the election results that it had never experienced before. Biden did not get the convincing and devastating victory that the Democratic Party and the liberal elites had expected.
The article stated that the “healing” process would not be easy, especially when Trump supporters believed that “election victory was stolen”. The fight against the new crown epidemic may not necessarily serve as an issue for the new government to unite the whole nation. The fight requires bold measures, but this may arouse protests from some Americans. Biden, who won the election, faces the risk of losing the country.
It is also said that in this way, we have to deal with the United States, which Biden admits it to be weak, stagnant and trying to change. It can be concluded that behind Washington’s return to “liberal” interventionism, there are not many supporters, although the government is desperately optimistic about this. It is no exaggeration to say that Washington’s entire foreign policy after World War II and its ambitious philosophy of establishing the status of “American leader” in the world are no longer in line with the current national interests of the United States. The United States is withdrawing from the era of launching “selective wars” abroad, because it is not ready to fight against an opponent whose firepower and technical equipment is comparable to itself, such as Russia.
The article pointed out that a positive agenda is already in place: fighting the new crown epidemic and terrorism, and dealing with climate change. Biden has pledged to return to the WHO and Paris climate agreement. He is unwilling to act as the “Trump’s clown” and will take a slightly more moderate stance on Iran, Cuba and Venezuela. What the world needs is cooperation that can be seen. Everyone wants to return to normal.
It is believed that the times require Western elites to abandon their past ideological prejudices and regard change as a priority issue for their own development. After all, the problem facing the American elites is not Trump himself, but his many domestic supporters.
The article concluded that the world has undergone tremendous changes during Trump’s four years in power. Trust in the United States has been irreversibly damaged, which has exacerbated the tendency of regionalization in global politics, that is, the growing influence of regional powers. For regional issues and conflicts, we now tend to seek regional solutions, which not long ago belonged to the scope of the geopolitical game of global powers.
