At the top of the docket for the president was a “Building Back Better” plan for the world. This is Biden's first G7 summit as president.
For the last few years, leaders of foreign nations weren’t sure what to think of the United States. Sure, Donald Trump showed up to global events, but he mostly embarrassed himself. The ex-President left a 2019 NATO event in a huff after video appeared of other foreign leaders mocking him.
It’s easy to sell people on lower taxes and to encourage people to hate paying taxes. Few politicians, even those who promise to provide health care, better public education, student debt relief, and so on, rarely explain in detail what Americans are getting in return for the investments their taxes fund or the bills they pay.
The fact that Donald Trump ordered Soleimani’s killing seven months ago takes us into criminal territory that also ought to be impeachable.
There’s nothing new about Trump breaking the law, or committing crimes when we consider every time he obstructed justice and tried to intimidate witnesses.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Democrats and Republicans in the U.S. Congress rejected President Donald Trump‘s proposed cuts to diplomacy and foreign aid budgets as dangerous to national security on Wednesday, setting the stage for a budget battle with the White House.
When asked by reporters what he meant by “calm before the storm,” Trump said, “You’ll find out,” before being whisked away.
Instead of standing up for the men and women who selflessly serve their country, the president – once again – took the side of the man who helped put him in the White House.
Trump wanted to remind everybody in the room that he was, in fact, still president, before ditching the meeting and letting the "grown ups" deal with the national security crisis.
At a time when stability and competence are more important than ever, we have a president who has none of those qualities – in fact, he's the polar opposite.

Ignoring questions from the background about what he plans to do about Syria, Trump instead thought it was an appropriate time for wisecracks.
McCaffrey said it would be a "mistake" to conduct "limited political signaling" in response to Bashar al-Assad's chemical attack on his own people.
As Trump continues to spew nonsensical word salad about how he plans to deal with the humanitarian crisis in Syria, Hillary Clinton reminded us why she should be commander-in-chief.
"The people who work for you literally have no idea what you mean or what they should be doing."
"I really wish that there was some way we could rein him in. I wish that our foreign affairs experts could somehow get his ear and at least tell him to shut up, to just stop it."
"You don’t run foreign policy by making statements, you run it with thousands of people working to implement programs every day. To undercut that is to undercut the institution.”
“Trump is unhinged and ignorant. Bannon is nuts and malicious. If not supervised by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, their decisions could endanger the world.”
Even though Barack Obama will not be president after Jan. 20, 2017, it's clear he wants to hold the world together after he's gone.
Trump supporter will seek out the “Mexicans. Syrians. People who can’t speak American and go right up behind them and make them a little bit nervous.”
Most voters think Hillary Clinton is best equipped to be the next commander-in-chief.
"Clinton is getting the backing of senior military service members and former officials with command and management experience because of her proven record of diplomacy and steady leadership on the world stage."
The ad underscores a larger point: Opposition to Trump isn't a partisan exercise; it's an act of patriotism.
Criticism targeting Trump for threatening to dishonor past agreements with NATO is well warranted; but not from hypocritical Republicans.
Things are so bad that a Reagan diplomat to the United Nations said he will not only not vote for Donald Trump, but he will not support any Republican who endorses or supports Trump.
"A lot of the proposals he has made display either ignorance of world affairs, or a cavalier attitude, or an interest in getting tweets and headlines."
The chairman of Trump's foreign policy committee Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) admitted that Trump needs to learn about foreign policy.
