How to get rid of the globalist agenda in America
In the midst of a global economic and political crisis, President Donald Trump is seeking to find solutions to the problem of a rising tide of nationalism.
Trump is not just being asked to address the growing divide between his countrymen, but to try and mend ties with the world, according to a speech by former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday.
“We need to turn the tide, but we also need to take advantage of the moment to turn it around,” Biden said.
“Because this moment is very, very important to the future of our nation.”
In the speech, Biden laid out the Trump administration’s priorities for the next two years.
Biden described a series of actions that he said will “rebalance our national priorities to the American people’s needs.”
The agenda includes rolling back environmental regulations, ending the war on drugs, restoring the Affordable Care Act, and reforming immigration.
But the Trump agenda, Biden said, has become a “globalist agenda” that seeks to impose “the very definition of nationalism on America.”
Biden’s speech came a day after the White House announced the first budget proposed by the administration.
In it, the administration proposes cutting federal spending by $3 trillion, slashing the EPA’s budget by more than $1 trillion, and instituting a “massive and ambitious” cuts to Medicaid, food stamps, unemployment benefits, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Department of Education.
The budget also proposes slashing the U.S. contribution to international aid by $2 trillion over the next decade.
“It is time to turn away from the globalism that has defined our politics for decades,” Biden wrote.
“A nation built on a shared belief in the American way, that America’s strength rests in its commitment to global justice and a shared sense of shared responsibility to each other.”
Biden said Trump will need to find a way to reach out to people in other parts of the world that might feel alienated by the globalists’ vision.
“This will require a shift in how we look at ourselves, and how we relate to each another, and to our fellow citizens, and our shared values,” Biden added.
“If we cannot begin to see each other for who we are, and what we believe in, then the world will never be the same.”
