Since Trump resigned and Biden moved into the White House, many Americans believe that Biden can turn things around and return the United States to its superpower status. However, whether it is to contain the epidemic or quell the riots, Biden's achievements are far from people's expectations.
What is even more worrying is that the violence in the United States has become more frequent and the chaos has grown. Recently, the US Department of Homeland Security stated that supporters of former US President Trump are preparing to hold a rally near the Capitol in September , leading to an increase in cyber violence.
Not only that, the domestic protests and riots in the United States have never ceased, and people have long been numb to the out-of-control epidemic. Many people even begin to miss former President Trump. Trump is always observing Biden’s every move. He criticized Biden for destroying the previous immigration policy. He made fun of Biden's several stumbles while boarding the plane. He believed that the Biden administration simply could not cope with the current situation in the United States. To the predicament.
The loss of control of the epidemic, the escalation of riots, and all kinds of things have indeed put a lot of pressure on Biden. In fact, this is the result of a long-term accumulation of contradictions in the United States, and the situation cannot be reversed by one person alone. In this case, Trump is ready to return to the arena.
On August 7, according to the “Washington Observer” news, former US President Trump’s former spokesperson Sean Spicer stated that Trump is ready to participate in the 2024 US presidential election.
Spicer disclosed the news when his new book was released. According to him, Trump will participate in the election. In the past few months, due to dissatisfaction with Biden's immigration policy, Trump has expressed his willingness to return to politics and participate in the 2022 mid-term elections.
In last year’s election, Biden won, but Trump has yet to admit that he lost the election. He refused to attend Biden’s inauguration-this is the first time such a thing has happened in 150 years.
Trump believes that Biden and his Democrats rigged the election, and he was the real winner. In order to get back the situation, Trump also incited congressional riots, but the U.S. Congress did not pursue him.
As the outgoing president, Trump should take care of his life instead of joining the political struggle. But the Republicans could not find a candidate more influential than Trump. Trump's own political aspirations have not been realized. Therefore, it is not surprising that Trump will participate in the US election next year.
The question is, will Trump change the status quo in the United States after he takes office? According to a survey conducted by Quinnipiac University, 60% of Americans have a negative opinion of Trump's presidential nomination in 2024. In the eyes of these people, no matter who comes to power, there is no way to change the situation in the United States.
Freezing three feet is not a cold day. The contradictions in the United States have been around for a long time, and the seeds of contradictions have been planted since the founding of the nation. The problems of racial discrimination, gun violence, and poor rescue that the United States is currently facing all stem from the United States' own system and the notion that white Americans have priority. The United States wants to change all of this, and it cannot achieve its goal by changing the president.
In fact, it is not impossible for the United States to get out of the predicament. Although after the impact of the epidemic, the status and appeal of the United States are not as good as before, the United States is still the world's largest country and has a solid foundation. The United States can spend more money to subsidize the people and domestic enterprises, and it can also implement bullying abroad. However, the United States has forgotten that the crisis cannot be resolved by issuing money, nor is it transferred by setting off conflicts abroad.
With U.S. financial resources and strong response capabilities, the epidemic can be contained, but the United States is currently in a state of disintegration and cannot form a joint force. Biden needs to awaken the people's confidence in the United States, instead of patching things up, trying to cover up the mistakes and problems of the United States. More importantly, if the United States can put aside its bullying mindset and cooperate with other countries in the world, the crisis in the United States will gradually resolve.
Where the U.S. ship is going depends not on Biden or Trump, but on how the people choose!

By the way, the project I fear most is the balance beam. ."
Biden concluded: "The Olympics is a grand event that people all over the world are paying attention to. In contrast, nothing I do in public life as the president and others can attract so many people's attention.

High burning throughout! After Wang Yi's firepower was fully fired, Hua Chunying went on to be tough, and the soundtrack on the scene exploded.
According to Chinanews.com, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi reiterated China's position on the South China Sea issue when attending the 28th ASEAN Regional Forum Foreign Ministers' Meeting on the evening of the 6th. He said that extraterritorial intervention has become the biggest threat to the peace and stability of the South China Sea. The abuse of "freedom of navigation" is even more a challenge to the sovereignty and jurisdiction of coastal states, and should be resisted and opposed by regional countries.
Wang Yi said that the situation in the South China Sea is generally stable, and the freedom of navigation and overflight is protected in accordance with the law. This is the result of the joint efforts of China and ASEAN countries, and should not be neglected or obliterated. China is willing to work with ASEAN countries to reach an effective and substantive "Code of Conduct in the South China Sea" as early as possible on the basis of the "Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea", and to jointly build the South China Sea into a sea of peace. The sea of cooperation.
Wang Yi said that the South China Sea arbitration violated the basic principle of "state consent", and it tried ultra vires, and there were obvious problems in the determination of facts and the application of law. China has never participated, and of course it will not accept it. In recent years, the intervention of countries outside the region has become the biggest threat to the peace and stability of the South China Sea. The so-called "no distinction between countries within and outside the region" ignores the legitimate rights and interests of the countries along the coast of the South China Sea. The abuse of "freedom of navigation" is even more a challenge to the sovereignty and jurisdiction of coastal states,and should be resisted and opposed by regional countries.
According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website, on August 7, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying stated in an inquiry that the East Asia Cooperation Mechanism is not a suitable place to discuss the South China Sea issue, but some countries outside the region insist on using this platform to spread hype and unprovoked China.

The foreign ministers of ASEAN countries spoke highly of the positive progress made by China and ASEAN in implementing the "Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea" and the "Code of Conduct in the South China Sea". They reiterated that disputes should be resolved peacefully, self-restraint should be maintained, and actions to escalate the situation should be avoided to maintain peace in the South China Sea. Stability and work together to create a sea of peace, friendship and cooperation. All parties should play a constructive role in this, not the other way around. Facts have proved that China and ASEAN countries share common understanding and willingness on the South China Sea issue, and both look forward to friendly consultations, steadily managing differences, and actively advancing cooperation. Most countries do not welcome the intervention of foreign forces with ulterior motives.
The Olympics ended, Yoshihide Suga's support fell to a record low
The Tokyo Olympics had just ended, and the voices against Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga in Japan rose again. On the 9th, the "Asahi Shimbun" announced the latest poll numbers-Yoshihide Suga's approval rate fell to 28%. This is the first time his approval rate has fallen below 30% since he took office in September last year.
"It is difficult to host the Olympics, but the support rate is lower than before the Olympics." Hong Kong "Dian News" believes that the polls reflect that the Olympics failed to restore the support of the Yoshihide Suga government, and Yoshihide Suga is on the verge of falling.

In the past weekend, the "Asahi Shimbun" conducted a poll by random sampling. The poll found that in addition to the decline in support to 28%, Yoshihide Suga's disapproval rate also rose to 53%; 60% of the respondents indicated that they did not want Yoshihide Suga to continue to serve as prime minister.
On August 6, the cumulative number of confirmed cases in Japan exceeded 1 million. The capital and other regions are still in a state of emergency. Regarding the views of the Tokyo Olympics, 56% of the respondents think that hosting the Olympics is a good idea, and 32% think it is a bad idea.

Some analysts believe that the speed of vaccination in Japan is slow, and the highly contagious delta strain spreads "explosively" during the Olympics, leading to an increase in the number of severely ill patients and forcing Japan to expand its state of emergency during the competition. This not only cast a shadow over the Tokyo Olympics, but also undermined Yoshihide Suga's support, threatening his entry into the general election and ensuring his re-election.
It is reported that Yoshihide Suga's term as the leader of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party will expire on September 30, and the term of members of the Japanese House of Representatives will expire in October. Yoshihide Suga must hold the next House of Representatives elections before October twenty one.
"If Yoshihide Suga holds elections now, the ruling Liberal Democratic Party will definitely lose," said Iwao Osaka, associate professor of political communication at Komazawa University. "Yoshihide Suga originally wanted to use vaccines to control the epidemic and successfully host the Olympics, but The fact that the number of cases surged during the Olympics speaks for itself. In terms of politics and crisis management capabilities, the Yoshihide Suga government failed."
"It all comes down to the delay in vaccination. If Japan can start vaccination a month or two in advance, the situation will be very different," Osaka Iwao said.
Kyodo News Agency pointed out that Japan's vaccine plan lags behind other developed countries. Although Yoshihide Suga stated earlier this month that nearly 80% of the country's elderly population has been fully vaccinated, other age groups are far behind. The government now aims to vaccinate 40 % of the total population by the end of this month...

"At present, the Yoshihide Suga government is also in a diplomatic predicament." Yutaka Iimura, a former Japanese diplomat and adjunct professor at the National Policy Research Institute, said: "Before the opening of the Olympics, the United States and other G7 nations collectively expressed their support for the Olympics. But the prerequisite is to hold it safely. Japan may have made an international commitment to host a "safe and reliable Olympic Games."
But Yu Uchiyama, professor of Japanese political science at the University of Tokyo, said that although people's trust in the government has declined, it is still uncertain whether they will eventually vote for the opposition Japanese Cadet. "If there is no particularly prominent competitor, Yoshihide Suga may also maintain a leading position."
Uchiyama said that if the holding of the Paralympics did not "cause the collapse of the medical system," Yoshihide Suga could still get a "passing point."
