Denouncing President Donald Trump as an affront to American values, Democratic candidate Joe Biden vowed Thursday that if elected he would hold a summit aimed at halting a backslide in global democracy.
The former vice president, who leads early polls for the Democratic nomination to challenge Trump in next year's election, said his foreign policy would be "based on clear goals driven by sound strategies, not by Twitter tantrums."
"The world sees Trump for what he is: insincere, ill-informed and impulsive -- and sometimes corrupt, dangerously incompetent and incapable, in my view, of world leadership and leadership at home," Biden said in a speech on foreign policy in New York.
Biden chastised Trump for downplaying human rights and voiced alarm at the "rapid advance of authoritarianism, nationalism and illiberal tendencies around the world" even among US allies, naming Hungary, the Philippines and Turkey.
He said he would hold a summit in the United States within one year of taking office that would recommit to democratic values and involve civil society.
"Leaders who attend must come prepared to cooperate and make concrete commitments to take on corruption and advance human rights in their own nations," he said.
"We have to be honest about our friends that are falling short and forge a common agenda to address the greatest threats to our shared values," he said.
Biden said he would also convene a separate summit on climate change within 100 days of taking office where the United States would press other major carbon emitters to join it in making "more ambitious national pledges."

We need all the other countries that are failing miserably to tell us what to do.
Great, Biden! Another talk fest. That’s the solution!
Trump vs. Biden =
Getting things done vs. Talking about getting things done.
Global democracy...aka, communism. No, thanks. Freedom may be messy, which is probably intolerable to control freaks, but Id take it over a global dictatorship any day.
New World Order
But first they have to complete the Bush Plan for North Mexico (aka USA)
The stupid is strong with this one
Democracy in name, socialism in action.
In case you weren’t absolutely sure that Biden is crazy and delusional, he is providing more evidence of that.
Dont worry -
Well be Better Off with Biden! Yippee !
Because everyone wants a return to the Obama Good Old Days
Yes, Hungary is totalitarian, Ukraine is Biden’s favorite democratic country.
Second, regarding democracy -
“The world hates America, but loves America’s money”
People arent voting right - we need a summit on democracy so they vote the way we tell them to.
Biden is so 1990s. He is not even a threat.
One could argue that Biden is the least radical of the Dem candidates. If that’s true...then he’s still a threat. As an analogy, he’s like getting bitten by a Black Widow, potentially dangerous but still not likely to kill a normal person. Whereas every other Dem-candidate is comparable to some kind of highly venomous snake.
“A republic, if we can keep it”
Lol. Joe Biden has a strong appeal to John MCCain’s republican fans.
He already attended Obama’s beer summit at the White House.
Real question...how long before the shooting starts?
