Donald Trump and Joe Biden
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden expressed outrage at the lagging behind the incumbent head of state Donald Trump from the leaders of Russia and China, Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping, in the ranking of public confidence of the inhabitants of world powers. He stated this during a meeting with voters on the ABC TV channel.
According to Biden, Trump has left the United States more isolated on the world stage and less secure than ever. “Iran is now closer to nuclear weapons than ever, North Korea now has more bombs and missiles, our NATO allies are now openly saying that they cannot trust us,” the Democrat explained. In addition, the current host of the White House has pulled the country out of a number of key international organizations or treaties.
At the same time, the candidate for the post of head of state praised his opponent for his achievements in the Middle East in connection with the normalization of relations between Arab countries and Israel. “I would say no, there is no plan [in foreign policy],” he concluded.
Probably, we are talking about a study of the independent center from Washington Pew Research Center on trust in world leaders. The top three were German Chancellor Angela Merkel (76 percent), French President Emmanuel Macron (64 percent) and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson (48 percent). Confidence in Putin's international politics was declared by 23 percent of respondents, he was in fourth place. Xi Jinping is trusted by 19 percent of citizens and Trump by 16 percent.
On October 13, Trump said that Biden is inferior in intellectual abilities to Putin, Xi Jinping and DPRK leader Kim Jong-un. During the first debate, Biden called his opponent Putin's puppy.
