Globalists get gleeful.

Joe Biden’s ascendancy to the United States’ presidency, highlighted by his sometimes shaky appearances in Europe in recent days, has reportedly pushed America’s popularity to new heights around the world.

According to new surveys by the Pew Research Center:

The election of Joe Biden as president has led to a dramatic shift in America’s international image. Throughout Donald Trump’s presidency, publics around the world held the United States in low regard, with most opposed to his foreign policies. This was especially true among key American allies and partners.

Now, Pew finds a significant jump in U.S. approval among 16 foreign populations. Take France, for instance. Please. Last year Pew found approval of the U.S. there had sunk to 31 percent. Presumably all because of orange man bad in the White House.

This year, however, Pew reports positive views of this country have surged to 65 percent. Presumably all because of the dementia Democrat in the White House.

Jumps of at least 25 percent in approval were also reported in Italy, Canada, the Netherlands, Germany, and Japan.

Confidence in the U.S. president has also varied sharply as foreigners make a sharp distinction between Trump and Biden.

Almost eight out of 10 Germans (78 percent), whose ancestors had the wisdom to freely elect Adolph Hitler as chancellor in 1933, today profess confidence in Biden to do “the right thing” in world affairs.

One year ago, only 10 percent expressed the same confidence in Donald Trump, who knows the difference between Syria and Libya and even between Ohio and Iowa.

Pew detected differences of at least 40 percent confidence in numerous other lands, including the Netherlands, Sweden, Belgium, and other modern tourist destinations for Americans. Biden and his Democrat Party strongly prefer, like, and work to buy that affection.

On Monday, Trump issued a reminder: “Those countries have taken economic advantage of the United States for many years—until I came along.”

This all raises the question – a crucial one in diplomacy – is it better to be liked or to be respected, even if that’s out of fear?
