A repetitive criticism of President Trump was his derisive approach to world leaders. Liberals feared that his direct approach and no-nonsense delivery would alienate strategic allies and isolate the United States, which could jeopardize our role as a global superpower.
As we now know, that was not the case. In fact, world leaders responded positively to Trump’s overhaul of the U.S. economy. Resources were abundant and America was in a position to leverage our ‘Made In USA’ goods for trade purposes with allies – and even our adversaries.
As it turns out, Joe Biden – the globalist icon – is turning his back on our allies, single-handedly isolating the country at a contentious moment when tensions are brewing.
France accused the Biden administration of stabbing it “in the back” over a defense agreement the U.S. recently made with Britain and Australia.
The United States, Britain, and Australia announced a three-way agreement this week to form a military alliance to help Australia resist Chinese aggression in the region. Under the deal, the U.S. and Britain will aid Australia in building a fleet of nuclear-powered submarines to counter the Chinese own submarine fleet.
The deal undercut an agreement Australia made with France in 2016 for France to supply Australia with a fleet of diesel-powered submarines. The new deal sparked furious reactions from French officials as France was left out of the new agreement.
“I am angry and bitter. This isn’t done between allies,” French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told reporters.
The Atlantic Council’s Europe Center director, Benjamin Haddad said that the move had set U.S.-French relations back to their lowest point since 2003.
A stunning stab in the back of a key European ally involved in the Indo-Pacific. Everyone in Paris is shell shocked. The lowest point in US-France relations since 2003 (with probably deeper consequences), and a major setback to a transatlantic strategy on China.

The feud over the defense agreement is the latest in a string of instances of Joe Biden alienating allies. Biden’s rushed withdrawal and evacuation of Afghanistan strained U.S. relationships with multiple western nations that pushed the U.S. to postpone its withdrawal date until evacuation operations could be completed. Biden denied the request.
Earlier this year, Biden received furious reactions from Canadian officials after he pulled a permit for the Keystone XL pipeline to cross from Canada into the United States, effectively killing the project.
At this rate, the United States will no longer have any friends, only foes.
It appears the globalist overlords who currently oversee the direction of our once-great country are laying the groundwork for an eventual alliance with Communist China. This would explain the ease in which the Biden administration allows the regime to skirt on trade deals, evade consequences for unleashing a global pandemic, and get a pass on brutal human rights violations.
The outward show of force against the Communist regime could be a method of obfuscation from what’s brewing behind the scenes.
