Adviser Biden: Trump’s spread of conspiracy theories can cause more damage to the United States than China, Russia and other countries
According to the US website axios, a senior US diplomat and Biden adviser said that Trump’s conspiracy theories have caused more damage to the US political system than Russia, China, Iran or North Korea can cause.
Harvard University professor Nicholas Burns, who previously served as the former ambassador and deputy minister of the presidents of the two parties, said that while challenging the results of the U.S. election, Trump spread conspiracy theories and made the United States lose its international credibility. . He believes that Trump’s baseless accusations against the US political system have weakened the US’s status as a “democratic beacon” and also weakened the US voice when opposing the “excessive behavior” of other governments.
In an interview with Axios at home on Friday night, Burns said: “Trump’s damage to American democracy is greater than the damage that Russia, China, Iran, or North Korea can cause in cyberattacks on the United States. I think it’s me. The most serious threat to American democracy I have ever seen in my life.”
The report pointed out that although Burns emphasized that his speech to Axios only represents his personal identity, not on behalf of the Biden team. But he is an important member of Biden’s potential cabinet, and he advised Biden during the campaign. On Tuesday, he and other senior foreign policy and national security advisers attended a high-level briefing with Biden himself.
When the US intelligence agencies talked about “foreign powers influencing the US elections,” Burns believed that he could not imagine a more serious threat to the United States than what Trump and his attorney Giuliani are doing now.
Burns said: “This is the first time in the history of this country (the United States) that a clearly defeated candidate refuses to admit defeat and refuses to make a peaceful and orderly transition of power. The peaceful transition of power is the core of the American democratic experience. “He believes: “Trump’s absurd, weird, and totally irresponsible remarks made without facts are destroying the atmosphere of this divided country.”
Trump’s lawyer Sidney Powell previously declared without evidence that Trump “actually won the election by a landslide” because millions of votes were “stolen from him” “Again. She also declared that Trump was the victim of an “international communism” conspiracy, and accused countries such as Venezuela and Cuba of manipulating the U.S. voting machine to transfer millions of votes from Trump to Biden. .
According to a recent poll by Monmouth University, 77% of Trump supporters believe that Biden’s victory was obtained through fraud. Tens of millions of Americans believe that the results of this election were “stolen.” They are likely to think that Biden’s election as President of the United States would be illegal.
Like many other foreign policy and national security experts, Burns saw the findings of this investigation and was deeply disturbed by its impact.
Burns believes that Trump “makes the next President Biden a particularly difficult situation, because… Much of the strength of the United States in the world comes from its credibility as a democratic country.
The United States can be a role model for others. Trump is destroying this situation now. He is dividing us and will divide further after the election.”
According to a report by the Russian TASS news agency, Trump’s former national security adviser McMaster also said that Trump questioned the results of the election to “help” his American opponents.
In an interview with CBS television on Sunday, McMaster said: “This is very harmful to national security. What worries me most is that the president is in the arms of our opponents.”
He pointed out that a large number of Americans are now suspicious. The legitimacy of the election results, but “Russia really does not care who wins the election.”
McMaster also said: “I hope that political leaders, especially the president, will not help our enemies, let us divide further and weaken our confidence in democratic principles, systems, and processes.”
