David Remnick: Biden Acted as an American President Should and Had Clear Messaging

‘I think Joe Biden set out to do certain things and did them in a very immediate way, which was to reestablish a relationship with allies in Europe that had been demeaned and debased by four years of Trump’

EXCERPT:

REMNICK: "I think Joe Biden set out to do certain things and he did them in a very immediate way, which was to reestablish a relationship with allies in Europe that had been demeaned and debased by four years of Trump. And then he went in front of the Russian leader and he acted as an American president should, delivering clear messages of national interests and so on. and he behaved as he should. In any real world, that would probably not be a headline, as the congressman said, but unfortunately, in the foreign world in which we’ve lived in the last five years under Trump, when we’ve had just debased relationships with our European allies and the most curious relationship with Vladimir Putin, things needed to be reset, to use that now fallen term.“
