Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden to Ditch ‘America First’ in Appeal for Partnership” – below is their description.
President Joe Biden will re-introduce himself and the U.S. to world leaders at a pair of international conferences on Friday, calling on industrialized democracies to partner in confronting the pandemic and climate change in a sharp departure from his predecessor’s foreign policy.
In remarks to the Group of Seven and a speech to the Munich Security Conference, Biden will portray collective action as essential, too, in great-power confrontations with Russia and China, pivoting from former President Donald Trump’s “America First” approach to global affairs. Trump antagonized allies in order to secure more favorable trade deals and reduce the U.S. military footprint, ties Biden seeks to swiftly repair.
U.S. relationships with its allies “are not transactional,” Biden will say, according to excerpts of his speech to the Munich conference that the White House released Friday. “They’re not extractive. They’re built on a vision of the future where every voice matters.”
The new president will also ask foreign leaders to match his efforts make large investments in economic stimulus, infrastructure and technology, warning that a greater risk lies in austerity, according to a senior administration official. Biden will argue that democracies must fight to preserve their institutions in the wake of both foreign interference in their elections and domestic upheaval, like the attack in January on the U.S. Capitol by Trump’s supporters.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
