In the midst of Brexit, the United Kingdom was laying the red carpet for Donald Trump.
“Donald Trump is a negotiator. It could be good for the UK.”In 2016, the then British Foreign Minister, Boris Johnson said.
“We are already working on a trade agreement, and I think it will be a very important trade agreement.”, The then President of the United States, Donald Trump, hinted in July 2019.
But now his successor takes the witness, who does not believe that there is anything to celebrate in Brexit.
Joe Biden and his co-religionists, under the chairmanship of Barack Obama, faced hostility from the Brexits. Boris Johnson stated that the President, of Kenyan origin, had an ancient dislike for the British Empire.
“Some of the presidents I worked for for Barack Obama will be missed, because a lot of employees now work for Joe Biden.”Brett Buen, a former Obama administration diplomat, explains.
Tdg Enright, Euronews: But will this affect their way of working?
“I think they will have a great working relationship. Joe Biden is a very good guy. He thinks of everyone. I think in Britain there will be a hard time about business deals. It’s almost impossible. __ He will put the people of the so-called Rust Belt states at the center of his foreign policy. Biden will try to hold their support and it will not be with free trade agreements. “Says well
Established interests have much to say in future business deals. And perhaps one of Britain’s biggest hurdles will grow on its own land.
“Agriculture. It is a particular political problem for a conservative government due to its reliance on rural votes.”Says Nigel Bowles, a political scientist at the University of Oxford.
Meeting food and agricultural standards would be a red line for London.
“We have seen the weight that can happen in case of fishing in small districts. This effect will increase many times”Says the bowl.
Trade on the one hand, a permanent transatlantic alliance may be even more important.
“Now we are completely in an American postwar era. There will be more crises, more fighting. We are seeing the efforts of moderate powers like Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Russia.”It explains well.
“China presents serious and deep problems for the incoming US administration. Although the risk of war is quite low, it is not negligible.”Bowl notes.
“Britain can play an important role as a member of a federation of countries that looks slightly different from the structure of older alliances, such as NATO or the European Union, but now how can we bring them into countries that are solidly Democratic? A set of principles and the UK’s role in that will be extremely important. “Says Brett Buen, a former Obama administration diplomat.
Johnson and Biden may not be best friends, but they are doomed to go along.
