EU will likely ignore Biden's heated rhetoric

By Chen Weihua | China Daily | Updated: 2021-06-11 00:00

With one of his goals being to seek US close allies' support for his anti-China strategy, Joe Biden began his first trip to Europe as US president on Wednesday. But he will likely face a reality check in Europe, as European leaders are still traumatized by the four years of Donald Trump's presidency, both on global issues and transatlantic relations.

Many Europeans now see the return of Trump or "Trumpist presidency" in the US in 2024 as a possibility, including a "Republican coup" in the 2022 midterm elections which could pour cold water on Biden's ambitious plans.

The collapse of the talks between the White House and Republicans on a monstrous infrastructure bill on Tuesday is a reminder of how sharply divided Washington is. It came after the Rasmussen Reports poll in April showed 51 percent of the respondents believe "cheating" had a big impact on the 2020 presidential election, and a Reuters/Ipsos poll in May showed 53 percent of the Republican respondents believe Trump is the "true president".
