The United States will power its way out of the mess the coronavirus has caused. The economic crisis will last far longer than the health crisis, and its impact will be far more dramatic. Things have changed in this country. Permanently, and in ways we can only dimly foresee. God help us all.
The rest of the world, by and large, is in deep trouble, and recovery, if it comes at all, will come only after years of turmoil and upheaval. See the suddenly timely “Disunited Nations” by Peter Zeihan. The world is about to become dog eat dog, every nation for itself, and only the strong will survive. All over the globe, from China to Russia to the EU to the developing world, to the Middle East, economic disruption is coming, resource wars are looming, and international relations will not be for the faint of heart.
President Trump has dealt with foreign leaders for over three years, and has demonstrated a firm grasp and a clear vision. He’s the man for this job, as any fair minded American understands.
And Sleepy Joe? Please.
