The US President often makes such statements.
US President Joe Biden once again stated the importance of democratic countries showing their ability to resist authoritarian regimes.
“I spoke with [Chinese President] Xi Jinping, whom I know well. We have disagreements on many points. He’s smart and a really tough guy. He really believes that the XXI century will be determined by the oligarchs, I’m not kidding,<…> the argument is that democracies cannot function in the 21st century, because everything happens so quickly, < … > that you cannot bring together a country that is divided to reach a consensus [on further] actions. < … > I had a long meeting with [Russian President Vladimir] Putin <…>, and I know him well. These guys are actually betting <…> on autocracy. Democracies must rise and demonstrate that they can do something,” Biden argued, speaking at a public meeting in Cincinnati (Ohio). The broadcast was hosted by CNN.
Biden often makes such statements. So, in mid-June, during a trip to the UK, he said that the world is experiencing a turning point in its history when countries with a democratic form of government need to prove their viability in competition with authoritarian regimes. At the end of May, the American leader stated that democracy in the United States and other countries is in danger and at the moment there is a struggle between this political system and authoritarianism in the world.
