Even the Trump administration, the United States of America played a leading role in doing a lot of This organization .. ”

He continued, saying: “What happened now is that President Trump relinquished these responsibilities and put us in a state of complete withdrawal from our allies and partners from international organizations and from agreements, and this is the problem: when we are not involved and when we are not driving, what happens is a matter of two, either countries.

He added, “Joe Biden began by stressing the importance of American involvement and the importance of American leadership. We will reappear in reality day after day with diplomatic leadership and not address the world as it was in 2009 or 2017 when we left the office (the mandate of Obama and his deputy Biden ended), but as the world is.
