Joe Biden bets for his anti-Trump presidency
In restoring the more traditional version of the presidency, Biden is using his mandate to counter the political forces that led to Trump’s rise and who still gave the president more than 73 million votes, although a defeat because of.
His Washington resumption is not without risk, and is already in conflict with a mix of nihilistic conservatism by Trump that is likely to dictate the Republican Party’s strategy even when he leaves the Oval Office.
“Let’s start work to heal and unify America and the world,” Biden said.
His recruitments, many of them Protegas, represent a reprisal of Trump’s totalitarianism, philosophy, style and compilation of “America First” and an anti-science White House inspired by conspiracy theories and a personality cult.
Biden’s domestic, health, and economic policy teams, expected to appear after Thanksgiving, will likely share the same mix of experience and knowledge after catching the eye of the president-elect, more than any modern predecessor of his Washington watch But more years.
“The purpose of our administration is uniting once again. We cannot continue this controversial political dialogue. It has to end,” Biden said.
His exaggerated point is this: The American people, after witnessing anarchy, nepotism and anti-intellectualism in government amid an epidemic, killed a quarter million of their fellow citizens and as America did to their friends abroad Turned back, now they want people who know what they are doing and not making too much noise. Each of his nominations was highlighted Tuesday by Thomas-Greenfield, who is black, and Homeland Security Secretary Nominee Alejandro Mayorkas, who is Hispanic, representing a personal departure from Trumpism in personality, background and qualifications.
Multilateralism, diplomacy, quiet capability, scientific rigor, inclusivity, nexus between top officials, respect for civil servants, intelligence community and immigrants are welcome.
Bashing allies, populism, nationalism, White House chuglies, dictator coddling, ring-kissing cabinet meetings, spy agencies running, and politically inconvenient threats downplaying political hacks – like killer viruses – are out.
Mitch Landrieu, former mayor of New Orleans, believes Biden’s nominee represents the person choosing him.
Lundry told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin, “The president-elect performs and modeles what looks like presidential behavior.”
“He’s just trying to show the people of America what it looks like when you have a president who is balanced, stable, who is thoughtful and experienced,” he said.
The president-elect is likely to reappoint the person when he makes a thank-you speech to the American people on Wednesday from his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware.
A completely different America
The sharp turn the US will take on Inauguration Day on January 20 reflects Stark’s choice from voters on November 3 – which has only been made more evident during Trump’s subsequent attempt to steal in subsequent elections. It also underscores the elasticity of an American political system that has the ability to counter the excesses of its leaders and often produces presidents who are unlike their predecessors.
Four years ago, Trump won the election after a campaign in which he vowed to destroy the political and economic establishment in Washington. Under his chairmanship there was the consensus of the institutions of federal power and the economic, domestic, immigration and foreign policy.
In many ways, after placing his faith in the hands of veteran Washington like Blinkin and National Intelligence director Nominee Avril Haines, Biden is rebuilding that administrative state. Perhaps the only presidential-elect himself is a more established, experienced and traditional figure than former Secretary of State and longtime Senator John Kerry, who would serve as the President’s climate ambassador and is exactly the same global citizen as Bannon and Condemned his fellow travelers.
Biden is not hiding his belief that more government is good. In a statement released on Monday after the Trump administration finally agreed to launch a transition, his team vowed to gain a full understanding of Trump’s “efforts to hollow out government agencies.”
And on Monday, many of Biden’s national security candidates made a point of paying tribute to the government’s unseen activists who keep the country running but were treated like an enemy during Trump’s years.
Thomas-Greenfield said, “My fellow career diplomats and public servants around the world. I want to say to you, America is back, multilateralism is back, diplomacy is back.” Haynes publicly spoke to members of the secret community, often on Trump’s target list.
“The work you do, under the most difficult circumstances imaginable, is often unavoidable,” Jain said. Many nominees offered envy to the American ideal, Congress, the American public, and democracy. While they all praised Biden, there was little of the exaggerated appreciation and expressions of personal loyalty that Trump needed for his subordinates. Haines told her new boss that she would tell him the bad news, which she would rather have heard in another implicit criticism of the Trump administration.
A different breed of officer
The impression of professionalism and competence given by the group was in stark contrast to the late personnel whom Trump relied on, who in many cases were unfit for the state’s noble roles, but were enriched by prioritizing loyalty to the president.
Not all of Trump’s early cabinet were in the same mold. Experts and experts in their fields were such as Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Director of National Intelligence Dan Kot. But his efforts to play his role led Biden to hope that he was disappointed when he consistently saw his government as a special service to his personal needs by Trump. And these officials, who were labeled “adults” in the press, often spend their time ruling in the worst impulses of an uncertain president.
Biden’s approach is designed for the circumstances in which he will take office. With Kovid-19 out of control, he will face a nation badly in need of an organized strategy to roll out the vaccine that can restore normal life. Just not being Trump and signing back to the Paris Climate Accord would give him an immediate victory on the world stage.
But in the long-term, the test of his presidency will be whether his calm, thoughtful leadership can pacify a country whose politics meets a unbridled wilderness, where his adversaries did not wait until the election. Do not try to win so that they can be made more representative. Where there is no longer a generic version of the truth.
After all, President Barack Obama once attempted to engage his opponents with facts and logic within the traditions of the American governance system. This did not get him away from Republican opponents whose political existence was directed at thwarting whatever he proposed.
If things go wrong, Biden would claim that the return of the administrative state triggered the disaster, which would fuel Trump when he re-runs in 2024, and the candidates hope he won’t get a shot. .
Abroad, Biden must prove that the serious work of allies, a proverbial policy process and negotiation can disrupt a world of growing American rivals who have shaken the global order in which he came of age. Like North Korea’s nuclear search, experience and foreign policy expertise in successor administrations never solved some thorn issues.
One reason for Trump winning four years ago is that many Americans believed that Washington’s generation’s tendency toward globalization caused their jobs to go abroad and the wars in which their children were sent to fight.
Rubio tweeted, “Biden’s cabinet moves to Pix Ivy League schools, has strong resumes, will attend all the right conferences and be polite and orderly stewards of America’s downfall.” “I support American greatness. And I’m not interested in returning to the ‘normal’ that has left us dependent on China.”
His tweet, which ignored the fact that many of Trump’s officials also attended Ivy League schools, led to Biden’s traditional White House duel at home and abroad, and populism was exploited by Trump.
