The Government President, Pedro Sánchez, has begun his three-day trip by the United States with an interview on the Morning Joe television program, of the MSNBC news chain. An interview that he started with the presenter, Mika Brzezinski, asking him directly "Why not Washington?", Refer to the absence of political meetings with the Government of Biden on this trip. The Spanish president did not respond directly to the question, and just said that "we need and want to have the US private sector on board."
Sánchez insisted that, to get out of the Covid-19 crisis, "we want to involve private investment," and took the opportunity to support Joe Biden's government and criticize Trump. "When Biden says that" US has returned ", not only is it good for you, but also, for the world," he said to Brzezinski. "Unfortunately, the situation we had before, with the Government of Trump, it was very difficult to understand, see the US President say that the European Union is a kind of enemy of the United States interests is a total error," said Sánchez.
In his speech at MSNBC Sánchez was also very critical with China, a country with which US relations began to deteriorate during Trump's presidency and have continued to worsen with that of Biden. If with the previous president, bilateral disputes focused mainly on trade, technology and geostrategic competition, Biden has added a new component, including the defense of democracy and human rights in the Asian giant, a position with which, Judging by what he has said on television, Sánchez agrees.
"I think biden is right, I think China for us, as Europeans, is an opponent, a competitor, and, also, a systemic rival in democratic values," said the president. Sánchez, however, marked that "we also need to talk to them, and open a dialogue with them in the great world challenges."
Finally, in the fight against the Covid-19, the Chairman of the Government explained to Brzezinski that "today, unfortunately, I am calling prudence in Spain." And, in what could be interpreted as a veiled attack on the 'Trappist' of the Republican Party, which rejects vaccines against the virus, stated that "the worst mistake that can be made as a politician is to ideologize the fight against the pandemic".Updated Date: 25 July 2021, 04:51
