‘The United States is there’: Biden delivers much different NATO message than Trump

President Joe Biden continues to distance himself from his predecessor while overseas for a series of international meetings.

On Monday, he appeared in Brussels, Belgium, to declare that he was pleased to take part in a NATO summit, strongly contrasting the position of former President Donald Trump that the alliance had become obsolete.

“Very unfair to the United States”

“I just want all of Europe to know that the United States is there,” he said at the meeting. “The United States is there.”

For his part, Trump took a much different approach in an interview with The Times of London in 2017.

“It’s obsolete because it wasn’t taking care of terror,” he said of NATO. “A lot of these countries aren’t paying what they’re supposed to be paying, which I think is very unfair to the United States.”

Biden sat down with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg in an apparent effort to smooth things over with the international military alliance.

“I think that there is a growing recognition over the last couple of years that we have new challenges,” he said. “And we have Russia that is not acting in a way that is consistent with what we had hoped, as well as China.”

“Who we are”

As for China, the president complained that the nation’s “growing influence and international policies can present challenges that we need to address together as an alliance,” he asserted, adding that NATO members “will engage China with a view to defending the security interests of the alliance.”

Despite his strong words, the summit was not seen as a foreign policy win by those who supported Trump’s more isolationist attitude. In fact, he seemed determined to turn the page on the “America first” policies that defined the previous administration.

“The leaders I’m dealing with in NATO and the G7 are leaders who know our recent history, know generically the character of the American people and know where the vast center of the public stands, not Democrat or Republican but who we are,” Biden said. “We’re a decent, honorable nation.”

Along with an awkward fist bump with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, there has been plenty for Biden’s opponents to criticize during his first international visit as president.

Among rivals and supporters alike, it should be evident that his deference to other nations is a stark contrast to Trump’s “Make America Great Again” message.

    1. “The Moron” from DC doesn’t help, WHICH moron? Creepyjoe hairsniffer placeholder? Kneepads KommieLa? Chucky scumher? Duncy Pelosi?

  11. Do you really believe Bidden is for the US and he working People? Do we really have true Democrats in office who are for te Working people? I wonder, this is a honest just a question? Democrat’s, yes or no. Same with Republicans and independents.

  12. This is what happens when a blooming idiot is put in charge of something he doesn’t have the brain power to run. Sleepy Joe moved into our countries White House with fraudulent votes. He is a Communist and the worlds worst human being as of now. That is maybe a stretch to call him a human being, he is a political dumb bell being used by Chine to have their way with the world.

  13. BIDEN’S A FOOL….AND A PHONY. THAT POS DOESN’T HAVE A CLUE WHERE HE IS AT, OR WHY HE’S THERE….THEY ALL KNOW HE STOLE THE 2020 ELECTION OUTRIGHT, AND THAT HE’S A BOLD, TWO FACED LIAR….THAT POS NEEDS TO STAY HOME. HE’S NOT OUR PRESIDENT, DOESN’T CARE ABOUT DIPLOMACY OR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. BESIDES THAT, HE’S THE # 1 ENEMY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN……..WHAT EVER HE TOUCHES, TURNS TO S–T. HE’S A TREASONOUS SCUMBAG AND PEDOPHILE, WHO NO ONE SHOULD TRUST NOW….AND NOT EVER…..

  14. joe is nothing other than “everybody’s SUGAR-DADDY”, it is actually a “very sad human,” who can not see that he is being used to the tilt and thinks that he has to “buy everybody off”……
    If he keeps throwing money arounf him, the way he is, it will NOT take long, before we will have NO money left to throw, and what then??

  15. FYI: That is not the real Biden, it is a Double! Being told what to say and do just like the real Biden is told.

  16. Why doesn’t sleepy joe just pack up his pencil and chopsticks and move over to China and take up residence there? He would have no problem with firearms and police. He has the resume to be the party joker and or it’s clown. I am sure he could impress the communist party with his view on politics and how to spend or throw away other people’s money on nonparty members, especially on those who didn’t earn a dime or contribute a penny to add to the fund.
