USA Today: G7 leaders seeing USA unstable and unreliable

(Logo of G7 2024)


The ‘Group of Seven’ nations is met in Italy. The seven leaders who met were Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, US President Joe Biden, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, French President Emmanuel Macron, Italian President Giorgia Meloni, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. In addition, they are also somewhat officially joined by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and European Commission President Charles Michel. That basically makes nine. And those nine were in the ‘official photo’ (see G7 leaders meet and Pope Francis is to speak to them). I mention that because most of the nine are European Union leaders.

USA Today reported the following about the G7 conference:

Biden’s pledge with G7 leaders clouded by Trump’s possible return, right-wing EU wins

Looming over Biden’s meetings this week with G7 leaders, which concluded Friday, were the possible return of former President Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, to the White House as well as recent right-wing victories in the European Union Parliament in France and Germany. Both threaten shared common goals of the coalition including continued support for Ukraine in its war against Russia − a commitment that was the dominant theme of this year’s G7 talks. …

“The prospect of the further weakening of the political center on both sides of the Atlantic looms over all the conversations,” said Charles Kupchan, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, an independent think-tank, and professor of international affairs at Georgetown University. …

What G7 allies agreed on in Italy

In an communiqué signed off by Biden and other G7 leaders before they left Italy this week, leaders pledged − among many other areas − to remain in solidarity with Ukraine; support the Gaza cease-fire deal presented to Hamas for the release of Israeli hostages; reaffirm a commitment to gender equality; take concrete steps to address climate change and pollution; and support a free and open Indo-Pacific while opposing what the Biden administration has said is China’s overproduction of exports.

Kupchan, who worked in the National Security Council in both the Clinton and Obama administrations, said it’s hard to say which G7 priorities could be undercut if Trump defeats Biden in the November election because “Trump 2.0 could be different that Trump 2.0”

“The biggest impact, I think, would be that G7 partners and allies around the world would have no choice but to question American reliability and American steadiness,” he said. “That’s less because of particular policies that Trump might implement and more because it would be amply clear the United States is passing through a phase of profound polarization and political dysfunction.”

He added: “Allies that have depended heavily on the United States for their security would have no choice but to hedge.”

Yes, the Europeans are going to hedge.

The Europeans are concerned not only about Donald Trump, but other dysfunction in the USA. Like debt:

IMF forecasts suggest that average G7 debt ratios will increase over the medium term. The US Congressional Budget Office forecasts the US debt ratio will continue to increase long term, driven by debt servicing. … economic history and the academic literature suggest that advanced economy debt ratios, at these elevated levels, are a real concern. They create vulnerabilities to crises … 06/13/24

The EU wants its Euro to become the world’s premier currency.

And the BRICS nations want to push aside the USA dollar.

The Anglo-American dominated world order is going away and will end (cf. Daniel 11:39; Jeremiah 30:7).
