The Spectator calls U.S. “crazy gerontocracy” and a banana republic

Chinese leader Xi Jinping sees the United States not only as a declining superpower, but also as a gerontocracy completely insane, said Freddie Gray, a columnist for the British magazine The Spectator, noting that the United States is close to the state of a banana republic. A similar opinion was expressed by the author of an article in The American Conservative, Frank DeVito.

Among the signs of the decline of the United States, Gray mentioned the unsuccessful, from his point of view, visit of 82-year-old Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan, as well as another “blunder” by American leader Joe Biden, who, after a visit to Kentucky, could not put on his jacket and dropped glasses.

Against this background, Gray points out, the murder rate in the United States is going through the roof and the problem with the supply of baby food for babies has not yet been solved.

“Such problems in the most highly developed capitalist economy in the world should not exist in principle. However, as Xi noted, in many respects America is rapidly running wild,” the author of the material writes.

The US, Gray noted, is not a banana republic, but “very much like one.” In this context, he cited as an example the searches at the residence of former President Donald Trump, which could cost him the opportunity to participate in the next election. At the same time, the author recalled that no one broke into the house of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who violated the rules of correspondence, with searches, and the State Department investigation found her innocent.

“So Monday’s raid, as Trump himself claims, really looks like an act of political intimidation, which is inherent in the dictatorships of the developing world. And also a desperate attempt to find anything that will prevent Trump from running for president in 2024,” writes Gray.

With the banana republic of the United States in the context of the searches at Trump’s, lawyer Frank DeVito compared in his article for The American Conservative. “Any attempt to prevent the re-election of Donald J. Trump through the tactics chosen by the FBI and the Department of Justice is unconstitutional and will further undermine public confidence in our federal institutions,” he stressed.

The lawyer added that if anyone wants to prevent Trump from becoming president in 2024, then he must “stop desperately attacking him and looking for legal loopholes against him.”

“Instead, they should let the American people make their choice, who, if they wish, can only reject Trump’s candidacy in a pre-election campaign or general election. Let’s stop acting like a banana republic and be worthy of the greatness of our Constitution,” summarized the author.
