It is a sad day when the United States has so abrogated its role as the moral leader of the free world that other nations find themselves scrambling to fill the void. It is really sad and there are no easy answer. But it was bound to happen. It was bound to happen given Donald Trump’s love of autocrats and his belief in “American carnage.”
The question, of course, is if America can ever dig itself out of this whole. We are in unprecedented times this is the type of uncertainty on the world stage that in the past has caused world wars to happen. So, if yo consider more than one regional war happening at the same time a world war, then we definitely may see that happening in the days and weeks ahead.
Macron is fast positioning as the liberal West's counter to Trump, Putin, etc. https://t.co/saPDgSabUr
