President Biden on Friday gave his first speech since taking office aimed at an international audience. Making the case for his plans to turn the page on former President Donald Trump’s “America First” ethos, Biden declared: “America is back” to the virtual crowd at the Munich Security Conference — a who’s who of global national security officials.
“The United States is determined — determined — to reengage with Europe,” Biden said. He called the partnership between Europe and the United States “the cornerstone of all we hope to accomplish in the 21st century.”
The president also vowed to the nation’s traditional allies that the United States is ready to work with them on issues ranging from arms control, COVID-19, cyberhacking and climate change.
