“The president would have everyone believe that he is an irreplaceable leader of the indispensable nation, but the idea that he has been ‘running the world’ betrays a dangerous arrogance about both the president’s importance and America’s international role. The U.S. didn’t ‘run’ the world even at the height of its power, and it is foolish to think that it could in an increasingly multipolar world.” (07/06/24)
