Daily: CAPTAIN AMERICA – Biden vs the Four Horsemen
America’s new President faces four overlapping crises – the COVID pandemic, the teetering economy, festering racial inequality and looming climate change. Does Joe Biden have the political resources to turn them around? And what about the fifth crisis, the poisoning of American democracy under Trump? The FT’s Associate Editor Edward Luce – Author of The Retreat of Western Liberalism – tells Andrew Harrison about the horrors in Biden’s in-tray.
- “The left wants heads on pikes – but Biden will resist that.”
- “Biden is inheriting low hanging fruit with Trump’s poor vaccine policy.”
- “Expect an information war, as much as anything else.”
- “Rejoining Paris on day one is very symbolic. But Biden’s environmental policies are more ambitious than that.”
