A damning account of Joe Biden's first year as President of the United States from Nile Gardiner, Director of the Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom at The Heritage Foundation - an American conservative think tank based in Washington.
His observations on life at home under the current administration make alarming reading:
"A huge expansion of government spending and massive increase in federal debt has helped fuel the biggest rise in inflation in 40 years. Americans have faced a 7 per cent overall increase in prices in the past year, with supply-chain issues resulting in the first major shortages in US supermarkets in several decades.
Against this backdrop of economic turmoil, major cities across the country are experiencing soaring crime rates, the direct result of foolhardy Democrat-led “defund the police” initiatives, and dangerous liberal sentencing policies. Looting has become so commonplace in San Francisco and Los Angeles that it barely makes the national news bulletins.
Biden’s America has become a byword for economic turmoil, urban decay, rampant lawlessness and far-Left policies that are tearing the fabric of the United States apart."
The immediate future doesn't look too bright either. Britain can only bide its time and hope for something better:
"The United States will eventually recover, and it must do so for the sake of the American people and the free world. But we should expect three more years of relentless decline and retreat as Biden’s out-of-touch presidency continues to drive the country’s downward spiral and humiliation."
