Rival nations and enemy regimes applaud what appears to be a Joe Biden win because they anticipate America will obey and serve their every demand.
If it seems difficult to fathom the idea that Iran — the world’s leader in state-sponsored terrorism — would welcome any American president, one need only recall how former President Barack Obama bowed and scraped. It’s déjà vu all over again. The White House may soon be weaker, more vulnerable, and compliant if the reported election results hold up.
“Now, an opportunity has come up for the next U.S. administration to compensate for past mistakes and return to the path of complying with international agreements through respect of international norms,” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said.
President Donald Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Iran Nuclear Deal that reportedly sent more than $150 billion to the rogue regime. The leading financier of terrorism reportedly used its wealth to fund IED campaigns that killed and maimed thousands of American soldiers and civilians.
The Republican president put maximum economic pressure on Iran and stifled its ability to promote terrorism. And in return for killing and wounding American soldiers, President Trump ordered the killing of Iranian major general Qasem Soleimani, who ran the illegal IED program. Biden denounced the targeting of Soleimani and plans to re-enter the failed Iran nuclear pact. It’s easy to see why America’s enemies are celebrating the U.S. election outcome.
Second only to Iran in destabilizing the Middle East, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas was reportedly overjoyed that Biden and Kamala Harris have won the White House — pending recounts and legal challenges. President Trump was the first U.S. leader to follow through on his promise to officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the U.S. embassy to the holy city. Obama and Biden failed to keep that promise as they kowtowed to Islamic fanatics in the region. Abbas took millions in U.S. and U.N. aide and funneled it into what many call the “pay-to-slay” program. Money was handed to the families of jihadists who died carrying out terror plots against Israel.
Abbas reportedly expects Biden to reverse the decision to move the U.S. embassy, denounce the Jewish state’s capital, and replenish the pay-to-slay cash.
“We don’t expect miraculous transformation, but at least we expect the dangerous destructive policies of Trump to totally stop,” Palestinian Liberation Organization official Hanan Ashrawi said. “They should change course and deal with the Palestinian question on the bases of legality, equality and justice and not on the basis of responding to special interests of pro-Israeli lobbies or whatever.”
In Europe, President Trump imposed tariffs to offset the trade inequities misused by the EU and pushed for NATO members to finally pay their delinquent military defense bills. Biden denounced the president’s efforts to stop forcing Americans to pay for Europe’s defense unfairly. Based on their previous experience with the Obama-Biden administration, NATO “allies” expect American taxpayers to foot the bill again.
“With Biden as president, the EU could expect and welcome a much more predictable and constructive US-EU relationship on trade, NATO, Iran, the Middle East and above all on climate change, if the US re-enters the Paris climate agreement,” Eurasia Group director Mujtaba Rahman said.
Everyday Americans can anticipate their taxes to go up, standard family deductions to dip, and foreign countries to prosper at your expense.
