Biden: ‘America First Has Made America Alone Under the Trump Administration’

‘Our alliances are in jeopardy’

EXCERPT:

BIDEN: "It doesn't have to do with philosophy. It has to do with we have not given a bench to younger people in the party, the opportunity to have the focus and be in focus for the rest of the country. That’s an incredible group of talented, newer, younger people. I ran this time because I think the issues that are before us happen to be my wheelhouse. I said from the beginning we’re going to inherit a divided country, as well as a world in disarray. They are the two things I’ve worked on my whole life. I’ve been able to get things done in the United States Senate and as vice president with the other party without making them the enemy and get things done. Unless we can reach consensus, this democracy is in trouble. And secondly, I have a significant responsibility and significant experience deal with the vast majority of the world leaders to put back in play our role in the world. We are in — you know, America first has made America alone under the Trump Administration. Our alliances are in jeopardy. Our ability to lead — Willie, we have led not just by the example of our power but by the power of our example and we’ve walked away. Look at what's happened with regard to this pandemic. The pandemic is that the President has no intercourse whatsoever with the rest of the world on dealing with these things. We led — Barack Obama led the corona — I mean, excuse me, in the pandemic that occurred when we were in office. It was kept in Africa. We organized the world. We put things together. That’s our job because we — if we don’t do it, no one is going to do it as you’re now seeing."
