Biden can ‘be president of the world’ at UNGA amid absences ‘if he handles the moment appropriately’

President Joe Biden tackles a number of top foreign policy priorities for the U.S. and allies at the UN General Assembly, highlighting the importance of democracy on the world stage. Peter Alexander and Sabrina Siddiqui join Andrea Mitchell to discuss more about how Biden tried to reassert himself as a world leader. “The President recognizes the need for a collective effort not just on the issue of Ukraine, but on so many other issues,” Alexander says. “The leaders of Russia, China, France, and the UK are all absent this year which, in the words of the advisors, allows President Biden, if he handles the moment appropriately, to be the president of the world. To really make this case on behalf of the world.”

    MSNBC get real about Biden. He is a lame duck President. By supporting Biden you are going to go down with him like a sinking ship.

    Nobody sees you as a world leader except some in Europe! Stop fooling yourselves! Did you not listen to any of the other leaders speak? You are a basket case since 2016 and your foreign policy has always been diabolical! God, you are arrogant!

    The World forgets Zelensky did not know if Biden was RUNNING, or be the President! He easily could have
    obliged & do what Trump wanted, go home & announce a criminal investigation into Hunter Biden. He was too
    honest! And would ignore Trump, over some American who could not possibly help his nation. Our GOP is nuts!

    Godbless Chrisian Russia Fun Fact: It was Russia who saved The Union during the American Civil War as they sent their Navy to San Francisco and New York when England and France were just about to enter the war on the side of the Confederates since London created the Confederates. France was already in Mexico making a spear head movement to resupply the Confederates and to open up a Pacific Theatre and to create a port in California. England already amassed 11,000 troops and growing stationed at their Northern Confederacies border now called Canada ready to open a Northern Theatre to divert Union troops from their Southern Confederacy then to attack The Unions naval blockade. The Union would have been completely destroyed and annexed by those two great powers leaving the Confederates to exist as a puppet state of London.

    London was already courting (threatening/bribing) other countries to get involved like Spain while Russia was in talks with Prussia to ally with incase London was to intervene.

    Seeing all of this Tsar Alexander II wrote a letter to Queen Victoria saying “If you enter in this war it will be a casus belli for all out war with the Russian Empire”. The stage was set for the 1st World War and Russia stopped it. So as American Christian I thank you Russia.

    Laughable nonsense that any one country’s president can be president of the world. A U.S. president would be the last one the world would want. The warmongering criminal nation of the world is the U.S.

    There are two ways to be fooled:
    1) believing things that are not true.
    2) refusing to believe things that are true.
