Biden Tries to Reverse Trump at G20 Summit

( – To some observers, Biden’s G-20 summit feels similar to former President Barack Obama’s apology tour in 2009. On Sunday, October 31, President Biden attended the forum in Rome and tried to ensure reversals of former President Donald Trump’s policies would remain permanent. Of course, he can make promises, but it doesn’t mean a future administration will keep them. There’s an old saying: Don’t let your mouth write checks you can’t cash.

So, what repeals did the president make in the presence of other world leaders? Let’s dive in and take a quick look at Biden’s reversals. Biden:

  • Lifted steel and aluminum tariffs between the United States and the European Union
  • Refreshed talks with allies about how to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons
  • Brokered an agreement to enact a global 15% minimum corporate tax
  • Struck a deal to end government financing of new coal-fired power plants

While the president is making deals he says are ironclad promises, he could be hurting the United States’ reputation in the long term. At home, his approval ratings are sinking rapidly with voters. Nonetheless, Biden downplayed the polls and said they go up and down. In addition, former President Donald Trump is signaling he could run for the presidency again, and if he wins, he will undoubtedly consider undoing Biden’s actions.

Biden’s senior advisers admitted off-the-record they’re concerned Trump or another Conservative candidate could win in 2024. Biden is attempting to use formal agreements and high-profile deals to shield the United States from potential policy reversals by future administrations.
