  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Biden opens overseas trip declaring ‘United States is back'” – below is their description.

    President Joe #Biden opened the first #overseas #trip of his term Wednesday with a declaration that “the United States is back” as he seeks to reassert the nation on the world stage and steady #European allies deeply shaken by his predecessor. Biden has set the stakes for his eight-day trip in sweeping terms, believing the West must publicly demonstrate it can compete economically with China as the world emerges from the #coronavirus #pandemic. It is an open repudiation of his predecessor, Donald #Trump, who scorned alliances and withdrew from a global climate change agreement that Biden has since rejoined.
