Post-Trump America and an 80-year-old president who is no longer a superpower

Biden is not the president of a superpower now and must make decisions and act on a variety of issues by accepting this. More precisely, he will undoubtedly have to make a lot of concessions on important issues such as the JCPOA in order to compensate for Trump's norms and the losses that the U.S. withdrawal from the JCPOA has done.

NOURNEWS - Democrats, led by Joe Biden, are reclaiming the posts and positions they handed over to rival politicians four years ago.

Although the Democrats have won a hearty victory and added another one-term president to Republican political history, they will face significant difficulties in the coming weeks and months, each with its own capacity to create a complex cabinet crisis. And at the same time a serious test for Democrats and Biden, 80 years old.

At the same time, the new administration has taken over the United States, which in many ways faces a weakening of power. Issues such as racism and domestic economic problems, along with the distrust of allies and the growing power of international rivals in the field of foreign policy, are the most important issues that weaken the United States as a major world power and will naturally challenge the Biden administration in the future.

The 46th president of the United States took an oath in Washington as the streets of the city were filled with National Guard forces, which had turned the city into a security stronghold against so-called "domestic terrorists."

The security situation reigned in the city after a group of extremist supporters of Trump attacked the Congress building and clashed with police, killing five people, including a US congressional police officer, an event that not only turned the streets of the US capital into war zones of Baghdad. And he likened Mosul and Fallujah, which, contrary to the usual tradition, led the president-elect to the inauguration site, out of the reach of the people and among a large number of security forces.

The security climate surrounding Biden's inauguration owes much to the power and motivation of the far right in the United States these days. The pro-Trump faction, which garnered about 80 million votes for its popular candidate during this period, has shown considerable potential for influence.

The existence of such a strong social base has increased Trump's hopes of regaining power and, along with vast wealth, will be the two main levers of his political game in the future.

Extremist factions and some neo-conservatives within the Republican Party were initially Trump's main supporters in 2016, but his implicit and controversial support for racists in Charlottesville's deadly protests in 2017 and the sharp rise in far-right extremism during his presidency led him to He has become a leader for this section of American society.

The right has a special role to play in the racial crisis in this country, and this crisis is one of the most important American nightmares in contemporary history.

Now, given Trump's quest for independence from the Republican Party and powerful critics in the party, Trump may use the republican internal rift in the future and, with the help of the party's right wing, bring a third trend into the American political climate, a process that could lead to the spread of racial sensitivities in America's inflamed society.

In the same vein, the Wall Street Journal reported that Trump had discussed with a number of supporters and close allies the formation of a new political party and declared that in line with his political slogan, "America First," he would like to call the new party a "patriotic party."

America these days in the foreign arena is very similar to the period in which Obama took power in 2009 after Bush Son. Post-Empress America not only faces growing competition from competing governments around the world, where relations with Western allies also face serious challenges due to Trumpian unilateralism.

For the past four years, Trump has proven that he doesn't like traditional U.S. allies, either, they wanted commitment and accountability that were inconsistent with Trump's vision. He merely accepts a certain and limited debt, and his critics believe that this approach only temporarily funds American interests.

Within Trump's intellectual framework, the security concerns of U.S. allies in Europe and other regions are less important, and they must take responsibility for their own security or pay for it, such as the case with NATO, South Korea, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

This view, "Continental Doctrine", mistakenly referred to as "isolationism" in Iran, is of course a long history in U.S. history, and a reduction in U.S. international obligations (outside the continental United States) constitutes its main idea.

The dominance of continental doctrine over U.S. foreign policy and its lack of participation in international regimes after World War I are known as one of the reasons for the beginning of World War II. Trump came to power under the slogan of reducing the burden of U.S. international obligations and fulfilled his promise as much as he could.

Over the past four years, this policy has led to the rise of US rivals in areas such as West Asia, which take power after the withdrawal of US troops and effectively establish the US position as an international superpower in the military-military field. They challenge and, on the other hand, severely shake the position of the United States as a reliable ally for its allies.

Trump's unilateral approach to U.S. allies, his behavior and speeches at the G7 or NATO meetings, or the imposition of customs tariffs for some Of Washington's European allies, in words Dennis Ross, all carried the message that "if you count on U.S. cover, you will remain naked."


At the same time, Trump pursued his strategy of international regimes and organizations. His unilateral and controversial withdrawal from the JCPOA and his disregard for European security concerns and clear violations of international rules, along with the withdrawal from the World Health Organization and the Paris climate accord, effectively questioned America’s commitment to international regimes and organizations and completed the process of global distrust of Washington.


With these interpretations, Joe Biden and his colleagues will face serious crises in the foreign arena during their time in charge, in addition to facing structural threats at home and facing a multi-parted society, whether the U.S. military and diplomacy in crisis zones has diminished and the trust of key U.S. allies seems to have been lost, while the new U.S. administration must meet. The power-taking process of governments such as Russia and China will also counter.

Accordingly, although Trump has left the White House, Biden cannot be indifferent to his legacy at home and abroad, and must be committed to the legal responsibilities of the U.S. government and pay for the costs imposed by Trump.

Biden is now not a superpower president and must make decisions and act on a variety of issues by accepting this. More precisely, he will undoubtedly have to make a lot of concessions on important issues such as the JCPOA in order to compensate for Trump's norms and the losses that the U.S. withdrawal from the JCPOA has done.
