If you were deeply worried that Trump would win the November Presidential Election, you will have heaved a sigh of relief at the Biden win.
Things were back to normal. The extreme had been beaten. Life could revert to stable. But is that the case?
Nations look to the US + want consistency, predictability + that word again – stability. They don’t get that from Trump. They get inconsistency, unpredictability + instability.
And what happens in Presidential Election 2024? Trump may not run but the Republican candidate will sing the Trump song, speak the Trump language +, if Biden has run into difficulty, Biden may lose.
Back to the world stage + the medium/long term. Who will look to the US + feel re-assured that all is well + the future is safe? This is nothing to do with China but countries will look at China + see stability/consistency/reliability. China is stable +prosperous. It will grow in influence as the US declines in influence because foreign leaders are worried about Washington.
Big geo-political international consequences flow.
