Oh dear, Joe! Trouble for Biden as most Europeans say they don’t trust ‘broken’ US system
Joe Biden’s trading relationship with EU discussed by Weyand
A survey by the European Council on Foreign Relations found six in ten of the 15,000 Europeans involved thought that the US political system is broken. The survey was conducted in eleven European nations. It has been released today, one day ahead of the inauguration of president-elect Joe Biden.
Approximately 53 percent of Germans thought Americans cannot be trusted after they voted for Donald Trump.
However, of those who took part in the survey in Hungary and Poland, the majority thought Americans could be trusted.
Of all respondents in the survey, 53 percent thought Joe Biden’s victory will make a positive difference in their nation.
A total of 57 percent also said the Biden victory will be beneficial for the EU.

Shockingly, of those who took part, one in three Europeans think the US will still be consumed by internal problems even when the Biden administration takes power.
This result showed how Europeans thought the US had “little scope left to invest in solving global problems” claimed Mark Leonard, the Chairman of the Centre for Liberal Strategies.
He added: “While, at the time of the invasion of Iraq, most Europeans thought their continent was weak and America was strong.
“However, the truth is that Europeans are now more positive about themselves and more sceptical about America’s power and political system.”

Mr Biden recently promised that “America is back, ready to lead the world, not retreat from it, once again sit at the head of the table”.
But, yesterday, Sabine Weyland, the EU’s director-general for trade, said that US-EU relations will not revert to how they were before.
The director-general for trade said the world has now changed.
Europeans see a pivot of the global order moving away from the US.
