President Biden this week is trying to convince world leaders that “America is back.” But the world may be skeptical, given recent events like the controversial Afghanistan withdrawal and dust-up with France over a nuclear submarine deal. Photo by Shutterstock.

President Biden spoke to the United Nations General Assembly today, trying to make the case that “America is back.” But the world may be skeptical, given the U.S.’ dust-up with France over a nuclear submarine deal with the U.K. and Australia, along with the disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal. Meanwhile, COVID-19 is killing some 2,000 Americans a day, according to Johns Hopkins University, while confusion continues over booster shots. The government is also scheduled to run out of money at the end of the month if a spending bill isn’t passed.
