This is one of the best news of the year. As Le Monde writes of a “judicial guerrilla” against Joe Biden, President Donald Trump has begun to allow America’s democratic mechanisms to function better and function normally, allowing power to be transferred to the White House. After the big voters confirmed his victory, Joe Biden wanted to pay homage to American democracy and its solid foundations. Consider Donald Trump’s “artificially maintained suspense,” writes the French daily. That is not to say that America has overtaken its divisions. According to a Dec. 13 poll by Sibies, 68 percent of Republicans still believe Trump has “stolen victory.”
Internationally, we can finally say that the world can breathe a sigh of relief. The good news is that Joe Biden cannot be made president, especially in the midst of democracy (which I have tried hard recently). Some of his promises go in the direction of strengthening democratic practices on the planet. The idea of organizing a Summit Democracy belongs to him, and in any case such an initiative can only come from the United States, which is considered the guarantor of freedom in the world.
At the same time, some French editorialists are wary. For example, in Le Picaro, Renat Girard writes: “The United States is its own superpower and does not consider an equal dialogue with any state other than China.” The analysis of the French geopolitical seems primarily a warning to the EU. Even to its allies in Western Europe, the United States really gives orders, and those who try to praise it really hate the United States, writes Renat Gord. He gives two examples in his analysis.
The first former French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, was a pro-American among French leaders after World War II. It is no coincidence that France returned to the Atlantic Alliance, at his behest, after de Cole withdrew it in 1966 in order not to receive orders from the Americans. In a recent memoir he wrote in France, former US President Park Obama did not contain much praise for Nicolas Sarkozy, but together sparked a debate, pointing out that the French head of state went from “flattery to bragging”.
The second example is British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Regarding him, the French editor writes: “After being elected Prime Minister, he praised Donald Trump for signing an equal partnership with the Americans, beyond any legitimate terms. But he got nothing. Boris Johnson made the mistake of saying that even if Republicans or Democrats were in power in the United States he would never get the privilege of privilege. “
According to various media outlets, the only thing Donald Trump can do to eclipse Joe Biden is to organize a sort of big media event when he leaves the White House on January 20 next year. It appears that Donald Trump is preparing a brutal ceremony for that moment so that the whole planet will notice his departure, and the installation of Joe Biden in his place will go “unnoticed”. As such, the show will only be the last media plagiarism of an American president, which many editorialists consider a planetary farce.
