"We're back!" The free world breathes a sigh of relief.

It goes without saying that Donald Trump did enormous damage to America’s global reputation. He spent four years in office coddling dictators and alienating our historic, democratic allies. Joe Biden, who probably has half of the world’s leaders on speed dial, acknowledged this fact and promised to rectify it. “We’ll be back. We’ll be back,” he promised a group of diplomats and foreign policy experts in Munich in 2019.

Well, WE’RE BACK, and the free world is undoubtedly and understandably relieved.

In his first, 2019 speech as a candidate for President, Biden laid out his vision for restoring America’s traditional alliances and blasted Trump for injuring the nation’s integrity and reputation:

Joe Biden used the first big foreign policy speech of his presidential run to blast President Trump for embracing autocrats and promised that his administration would make the defense of democracy the center of its foreign policy. He accused Trump of “walking away from American responsibility, lying about matters big and small” and bankrupting “America’s word.”

“He has alienated us,” Biden said of Trump on Thursday. Biden’s alternative largely involved a return to traditional American principles such as the promotion of democracy and cooperation with allies. Instead of focusing exclusively on the United States’ unilateral interests, he spoke of a return to spreading American values.

The free world is celebrating with us today.

Hell yes! I can jump imagine our pals over seas thinking, “They’re been ridden of the oompa loompa! Sanity at last!” Macron in particular already established warm congratulations to Biden. Good things! Now! Let’s make sure these good times keep on rolling with GA giving us blue senators.
