Position of Biden and Trump in Terms of Electoral Components

2020/09/23 | Note, political, top news

Strategic Council Online - Biden believes in the threats that Trump has made to US interests and national security over the past four years, such as threats to Iran, China, North Korea, or the threat posed by terrorism, but believes that the approach to face such threats is multilateral. That is to say, he will try again to revive transatlantic relations, including relations with Europe, whether, within the NATO, the European Union or bilateral relations, and also will advance the issue of Iran and Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) within the framework of the same JCPOA mechanism.

Under the status quo when there are two months left to the US presidential elections, the most important component that has affected the US elections these days is the Coronavirus and its consequences. In the case of the absence of this issue, we could definitely say that Donald Trump would be the winner of the elections. At present, according to the opinion polls, it could be said that in which category each of the candidates, Trump and Joe Biden, are accepted.

Economically, despite the Corona crisis, most Republican bases and even a large section of the American people believe that the Republicans are more successful in economic management. Another factor that is in favour of the present US president these days is that he has fiery and stubborn supporters; to such an extent that about 60 per cent polled by Trump’s social bases said they would definitely vote for him, but in the case of Biden the figure is about 40 per cent.

The third component is that Trump is younger and healthier than Biden. That is why 56 per cent of the Democrats have said they are concerned about Biden’s age. In other words, the situation is not in favour of Biden in terms of his age either.

The other factor is that the Coronavirus has caused more economic and mortality damage in the states whose governors are Democrats, and therefore, the negative consequences of the Coronavirus cannot be attributed entirely to Trump. Although the situation has been set to some extent to the detriment of the President, but this is not a situation of 100%.

On the other hand, for Joe Biden, in this context, the issue of paying attention to the health insurance, which was previously raised by Barack Obama, is very important for the Americans, considering Corona disease and its costs.

In terms of environmental concerns, the attention that is paid by Biden to racial and gender equality is in a better condition than Trump.

In the field of foreign policy too, many Americans have said Trump’s orientation is wrong and that the situation is in Biden’s favour.

In a nutshell, it could be said that a series of components are in Trump’s favour while another series are not.

Major polls suggest that they are concerned about Donald Trump’s emotional and reactionary personality, and in the case of Biden about his age, believing that he may not even be able to finish his first term. However, in the polling in gray states, Biden is ahead of Trump. Exactly in September 2016, Hillary Clinton was 2.3% ahead of Trump. It seems that we have to wait until the first election debate, which will be held in late September because this debate is very influential in the final orientation of the gray states.

As for the future of Washington’s policies, in case of the victory of any of the candidates, it should be said that if Biden becomes US President, his foreign policy can be explained in one phrase, and that is the return to multilateralism. Of course, Biden believes in the threats that Trump has made to US interests and national security over the past four years, such as threats to Iran, China, North Korea, or the threat posed by terrorism, but believes that the approach to face with such threats is multilateral. That is to say, he will try again to revive transatlantic relations, including relations with Europe, whether in the form of NATO, the European Union or bilateral relations, and also will advance the issue of Iran and Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) within the framework of the same JCPOA mechanism.

In the meantime, Biden will also strengthen ties with Canada, Mexico and other Washington allies in Asia, such as Japan, South Korea and India, to meet all the challenges and threats in the field of foreign policy.

In the field of domestic politics, attention to environmental issues, racial and gender equality and medical issues will be a priority for Biden.

But if Donald Trump becomes the president, it seems that he will continue the same four-year approach, albeit a little more inflexible and stricter. Probably, in case he enters the White House once more, he will pursue a critical and divergent approach towards the EU; in the case of Russia he will adopt a cautious approach; in the face of the Islamic Republic of Iran Trump seems to be taking a more inflexible stance, as he will no longer worry about the next round of the elections and the impact of his policies on the election results. As for East Asia, Donald Trump will continue his unilateralist approach.

Claims of a US Arms Embargo against Zionist Regime Reveal America’s Deception

Strategic Council Online – Interview: An expert on international issues said that the US claims to have suspended sending weapons to the Zionist regime is a political deception to silence public opinion because this would make no difference in the nature of Washington’s support for the Zionist army and the existence of this regime.

Goals of Blinken’s Recent Trip to Saudi Arabia

Strategic Council Online—Interview: A researcher of Saudi affairs said that US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken arrived in Riyadh recently during a regional trip and had consultations with the Riyadh officials. It seems that one of the items on the agenda between Saudi Arabia and America, in addition to the Gaza war, is the process of normalizing relations between the Israeli regime and the Arab kingdom.

Dr. Kharrazi's response to the new US position on Iran's nuclear program:
It Was America That Abandoned Nuclear Diplomacy/ Iran Also Considers Diplomacy the Best Approach

Strategic Council Online: The President of the Strategic Council on Foreign Relations stated: “The US State Department spokesperson, after my interview with Al Jazeera, reiterated their past remarks, stating that they won’t allow Iran to build nuclear weapons, but ultimately said diplomacy is the best approach. Yes, we too prefer diplomacy since based on the Fatwa of our Supreme Leader are not for nuclear weapons; rather, we are advocates of diplomacy to make the Middle East a nuclear-free region. But, in case the Israeli regime threatens us with nuclear weapons, we surely cannot sit idle and wait for permission from others.”

Europe’s Confusion in Securing Bab al-Mandab Strait and the Red Sea

Strategic Council Online – Opinion: The strategic Strait of Bab al-Mandab and the Red Sea have recently faced serious problems and crises due to the Gaza war. This is because of the protectionist approach of the Yemeni army forces toward Palestine, which, since the beginning of the Israeli regime’s attacks on the Gaza Strip, has included attacks on ships bound for or from the origin of the regime in the Red Sea.
They said they will continue their attacks until the Israeli regime’s military aggression in the Gaza Strip ends. The United States, as the most important supporter of the Israeli regime, was the first country to respond to this policy of Yemeni army forces and tried to form a global coalition to counter these attacks under the cover of supporting freedom of navigation, which, of course, failed because of conflicts of interests of Western countries and ended in the actions of the US and British attacks on positions in Yemen. Of course, although European countries were not seriously involved in the American coalition, they have numerous and complex interests in this inflammatory, and as a result, have adopted a particular and independent approach.

The prospect of Possible Departure of Hamas Political Office from Qatar

Strategic Council Online – Interview: An expert on regional issues said Qatari authorities will definitely resist Western pressure to expel Hamas leaders from their territory, and probably the United States will not move towards a zero-hundred equation in this regard because if the Hamas leaders remain in Qatar, which is an ally of the United States, is better than moving to a country outside the power of the United States to exert pressure.

Messages and Consequences of Student Protests in the United States

Strategic Council Online – Opinion: Student protests in America take on new dimensions every day.
Because the university enjoys higher public trust and social capital than other civil and social institutions and is, therefore, more effective, the current protests put the U.S. government in a “difficult situation” that is clear in the statements of current and former U.S. officials.
