The head of US diplomacy speaks Wednesday, February 24, at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva. Antony Blinken thus marks the return of the United States in this UN forum after their departure decided with a bang by Donald Trump in 2018. Another sign of the determination displayed by the new Biden administration to revive multilateralism vilified for four years. Since arriving at the White House, the 46th President of the United States has shown his determination to overturn the “America First” philosophy of his predecessor. However, according to Benjamin Haddad, European director of the think tank Atlantic Council, based in Washington, the four years of “America First” are likely to leave traces in the new American diplomacy.RFI: Since his election, Joe Biden proclaims the return multilateralism and America on the international stage. The new US president hammered it out again in his first international speech last Friday, before the G7 security conference in Munich. However, does this promise “America is Back” really mark the end of Donald Trump’s “America First” Benjamin Haddad: In Joe Biden’s speech in Munich, which is his speech since his campaign and his election, there is the will to put alliances back at the heart of American foreign policy, with first and foremost the transatlantic alliance and the relationship with Europe. Joe Biden wants to see the United States resume a leadership role on the international stage in favor of multilateralism and liberal international order. The defense of liberal democracies against authoritarian regimes, starting with China and Russia, was one of the main themes of his speech in Munich. But it is true, behind the speech, we also see an America facing a triple health crisis, economic and identity. For now, the fight against Covid is the top priority of the Biden administration, which will have to make the big difference with its domestic priorities, when the United States has just passed the threshold of 500,000 deaths from Covid- 19 with profound socio-economic consequences. The interior dimension will therefore be a priority. Europeans must not forget this. Furthermore, although we will see a very different method, we will also see lines of continuity in a number of priorities between the Trump administration and the Biden administration, foremost among which is the centrality of the strategic rivalry with China. which is today the main strategic issue in Washington, but also a very limited willingness to get involved in conflicts, especially in the Middle East and in the periphery of the EU. There will therefore also be a form of continuity between the Biden and Trump administrations. But in the desire to work with the allies, in the desire to get involved again in major global issues such as the fight against global warming, we will see a method very different from the unilateralism and nationalism promoted by the Trump administration. your book, Paradise Lost, Trump’s America and the End of Illusions, you write that “Donald Trump is neither an accident of history nor a passing phenomenon”. Does this mean that its isolationist doctrine will outlive it? Europe no longer has the same strategic centrality it had during the Cold War. For reasons of course obvious since the rivalry between the United States and the USSR was played out at the time in the European theater. And since Barack Obama and the famous pivot to the Pacific, but also Donald Trump’s foreign policy, we have seen China and the Pacific play a much more central role in American foreign policy. Beyond that, the military interventions of the 2000s, Iraq, Afghanistan, traumatized part of the American population. This called into question the sense of exceptionalism and the interventionist will of the United States. Trump was both an accelerator, but also a symptom and a consequence of this trend. This is a phenomenon that can be found on the right of the political spectrum, but also on the left, especially among progressives like Elisabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, who were very influential in the campaign for the Democratic primary. Joe Biden is a traditionalist in foreign policy, he’s a moderate, and he’s an internationalist. But he will have to deal with an American population that has the reconstruction of the United States as a priority. In the United States, this is called the “bulding-at-home nation” whether in the economy, the fight against inequality, the issue of debt or infrastructure. For Biden, the priority will remain, above all, domestic politics. In the Biden administration we see today that the consequences of rejecting this internationalism among a part of the American population have been learned. This is the case, for example, of Jake Sullivan, the national security adviser, who for several years has worked on the integration of economic and foreign policy issues. On a subject like international trade, Trump was very hostile to free trade and very protectionist. And Jake Sullivan reiterated that the United States would not sign a free trade agreement if it could not clearly demonstrate a positive impact for the American middle class and industry. So there will now be a special attention from American leaders to the consequences for the American population. This bond had loosened a little, at a time when the United States, very present on the international scene, had perhaps lost sight of the consequences on its own population. In this regard, Donald Trump has been a form of reminder and warning: you have just had a great interview with French President Emmanuel Macron, you regularly interact with European diplomats stationed in Washington. What are the expectations of the European allies vis-à-vis the new American administration? I believe there is now an opportunity to redefine the transatlantic relationship. A transatlantic relationship that would be more balanced with more united Europeans who would be able to assume their responsibilities and assume the defense of their power and their interests, especially in their own periphery. There is no contradiction with a strong alliance. The Europeans have welcomed the arrival of Joe Biden, after a Trump presidency openly hostile to the European Union. Trump had called the EU an enemy. He had applied tariffs to Europeans. Now we have a Biden administration that doesn’t have that hostility and, on the contrary, wants to work with the allies. We see it in the fight against global warming, with the reinstatement of the Paris Climate Agreements, but also with the reinstatement of the World Health Organization, the will may be to relaunch negotiations on Iranian nuclear power. There is therefore an opportunity to work with the Biden administration but I believe that the stake, and this is in particular what Emmanuel Macron is trying to push, is to redefine the contours of this transatlantic relationship with Europeans who draw conclusions from what the Americans are saying, especially on burden sharing, on interventions in the Middle East and who agree to take their responsibilities and push their own defense further. It is a real risk to see the Europeans fall asleep saying to themselves, the Americans are back, they are there to protect us and ensure our defense and therefore we no longer need to make any efforts. European chancelleries fear that the return of the United States on the international scene is only an ephemeral parenthesis of four years? I hope that there is this concern because it is a risk. We cannot subject the security of Europeans to the vagaries of the American elections. Beyond even the re-election of Donald Trump, there are also the priorities of the Biden administration which may not want to get involved in conflicts, think of the Eastern Mediterranean, think of the Libya, let us think again of the consequences of the Syrian conflict in terms of terrorism or migration, so existential for the EU. We will not have an American administration that wants to engage further so it will also be the responsibility of Europeans to be able to defend their own security. Even beyond what we have seen over the past four years with Donald Trump, we must have an optimistic, but clear-sighted outlook on what Americans will be able to do in the coming years. And I see no contradiction between a strong transatlantic alliance and a Europe that is capable of defending its autonomy. We can sometimes have different opinions on certain major strategic issues, but it is of course in the interest of the United States to have strong and united allies who have real added value, rather than weak and divided. I believe this is really the message that some Europeans, including Emmanuel Macron, are trying to convey to the Biden administration. Emmanuel Macron is claiming “strategic autonomy” vis-à-vis the great American ally. When the French president talks about autonomy, does he have the Sahel in mind? He has the Sahel in mind because it is obviously a key security issue for France, but it is also a very interesting precedent in the relationship between France and the United States. The Sahel is land that is in the direct security interest of France and of Europeans. The French led the political and military impetus, they sent soldiers, supported today by the rest of the Europeans, but it is also an operation that is part of the United States’s global fight against terrorism. We see the Americans supporting this operation with reconnaissance, intelligence and the dispatch of special forces. This is a case where the Americans disengage, but let their allies take the lead, take their responsibilities, support them where they can. It is a European autonomy which is articulated very well with the transatlantic alliance which could ultimately be a good precedent for what a more balanced transatlantic alliance could look like in the coming decades.
