Shortly following the 2020 presidential election, Joe Biden swaggered into his first G7 summit. With a puffy chest, he egotistically boasted that “America is back” and that Lady Liberty is once again standing tall and proud. But as world leaders are once again preparing to huddle in solidarity, this year’s summit is rife with skepticism, and Biden is going to have to answer for his failures.
At the first summit, Biden’s primary goal was to erase the stigma of “America first” that Donald Trump had created. He achieved his goal only to arrive this year needing extra help to haul in his political baggage. As opposed to the previous meeting, every world leader on the invitation list is now anxious to hear why after two years in office, America isn’t back.
Director of the Europe Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Max Bergmann, said, “I think Europeans no doubt look at the U.S. domestic situation with a degree of dread. It’s sort of the best of times, the worst of time.”
The G7 summit could not have come at a worse time as the world hones in on the congressional hearings to uncover the sources behind the attempted government overthrow following the 2020 election. Adding to Biden’s woes, the same party under the spotlight is making a significant comeback despite the truckloads of evidence being pathetically presented against them that few people are buying.
Mass shootings and the senseless slaughtering of school children are unique only to America. Someone’s pulling the trigger almost daily as the issue of gun control continues to divide the country to the brink of civil war.
Inflation and ongoing supply chain issues are stories for another day, but since America’s fledgling economy ultimately affects every country represented at the table, Biden’s gonna be dodging eye darts.
Then comes the fresh wound of abortion rights that’s not about to scab over any time soon. The decision by SCOTUS has rocked the world of the other leaders who are horrified and were quick to denounce the U.S. for what they term a reckless decision that Biden chose to steer clear of.
It only makes sense that outspoken French President Emmanuel Macron was the first to issue his fiery words of condemnation. With every ounce of his liberal blood boiling, Macron tweeted, “Abortion is a fundamental right for all women. It must be protected. I wish to express my solidarity with the women whose liberties are being undermined by the Supreme Court of the United States.”
Trudeau was next to throw stones by saying he can’t “imagine the fear and anger” that must be permeating through the veins of every woman in America.
Boris Johnson from the U.K., who saw eye-to-eye with Trump on most matters, voiced his opinion as well. “I’ve got to tell you I think it’s a big step [sic] backwards. I’ve always believed in a woman’s right to choose and I stick to that view and that’s why the U.K. has the law that it does and we recently took steps to make sure those laws were enforced throughout the whole of the U.K.”
With no exceptions, the Trump-appointed judges matter not. Joe Biden is still the president and could have done a lot more than the nothing he’s done not only on the abortion issue but on the many others plaguing America since he took over the reins.
Biden’s swagger is gone. He’ll be limping into the meeting room and there won’t be any boasting this time around. He’s gonna be stuttering up a storm as he gets raked over the coals he set ablaze by his lack of action. And of course, the glowing embers of coal will lead to the issue of fossil fuel which is yet another dilemma Biden will be forced to address…
He’s about to have a very bad day.
