Speaking at the annual Munich Security Conference in Germany on Saturday, former Vice President Joe Biden said that the state of his country was an “embarrassment” due to President Trump.
Biden took it upon himself to speak for the American people broadly in objection to President Trump’s immigration polices- ironically, in reference to child separation policies that existed under the Obama administration for which he was Vice President.
“The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border… The American people understand plainly that this makes us an embarrassment.”
The potential 2020 Democratic Presidential candidate went to describe what he perceived as a “lack of leadership on the other side of the Atlantic.”
Traditionally, prominent American politicians speaking at international events such as the Munich Security Conference have precluded domestic politics. But that didn’t stop Biden from giving a sharply political speech in which he denounced the American President to the crowd.
The Munich Security Conference is known for attracting an elitist crowd of establishment liberals, neoconservatives, and wealthy oligarchs, and a major speaker at this year’s conference was outgoing German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who denounced President Trump’s America First trade policies.
Former Arizona Senator and staunch pro-war advocate John McCain had been a regular patron of the event.
The event is structured for political elites across the west to congratulate themselves and denounce rising populist nationalist movements for usurping what they see as their right to govern. Yet, self-satisfied elites such as Biden generally approach the event with the false assumption the individuals present are broadly representative of the general public of their respective nations.
Many would be just as embarrassed as Biden to see the former Vice President of the United States speak disparagingly about his own country at an international event, if they considered the annual globalist gathering worthy of any consideration.
Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts
The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.
The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.
In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”
Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”
The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:
After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.
Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.
Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
