Joe Biden is beginning, it seems, to take a certain stance towards foreign policy, which can be said to be different from the announcements during the campaign. This time, he "warned" the Russian president that America would no longer tolerate Russian interference in America's internal affairs.
"I made it clear to President Putin, in a manner very different than my predecessor, that the days of the United States rolling over in the face of Russia's aggressive actions -- interfering with our elections, cyberattacks, poisoning its citizens -- are over," Biden said on February 4 in a speech to the State Department in Washington during his first visit to the country's diplomatic nerve center.
He also urged Russia to release opposition leader Aleksei Navalny, adding: "We will not hesitate to raise the cost to Russia."
Although Biden acted "peacefully" and "reconcilably" during the campaign and accused Trump of straining relations with China (which Trump really did), now it's as if Biden liked America playing the role of the world's "policeman." It is okay for the president to stand up for the protection of his own country, but it seems that the old story is repeated when the American President "advises" on political freedoms and democratic rights in other countries. Mister President, there is a lot to solve in your own country. Racism above all, the consequences of the economic downturn after the pandemic, many unemployed and much more.
