Biden to rebuke Trump on international affairs

A senior Biden campaign official told reporters in a call on Wednesday that the former vice president will present a stark contrast with Trump on policy areas such as international agreements, the global economy and dealing with foreign adversaries. 


Biden is expected to call for revamping U.S. foreign policy through improving domestic policy, promoting a global economy and putting the U.S. back in a leadership role in combatting threats such as climate change. 

The official said Biden will specifically outline how his administration would help equip Americans to compete and succeed in the global economy. 

Biden, who released his climate change plan last month, is expected to say it is not enough for the U.S. to just rejoin the Paris climate accords.

The former vice president is also expected to touch on Washington's relationship with foreign adversaries like Iran and the United States' future in multinational pacts like the Obama-era nuclear agreement with Iran.  

Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Iran deal and the Paris agreement. 

Biden's campaign also released a new video on Thursday saying the U.S. has been "forced to abide by the Trump Doctrine" for the last 902 days.

That doctrine, the campaign said, includes embracing dictators and embarrassing the U.S.

Biden made headlines last week in an interview with CNN when he predicted that NATO would cease to exist if Trump is reelected. 

Foreign policy has long been seen as one of Biden's strong suits. He gained wide-ranging experience in the area from working in the Obama administration, as well as serving as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
