On Wednesday, US President Joe Biden and Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin met face-to-face in the study of Villa La Grange in Geneva, Switzerland. This was the first time Biden took office in January. The two shook hands and immediately began their highly anticipated summit through an interpreter, which is expected to last several hours.
The risk of the meeting is considered particularly high because it can set the tone for US-Russian relations in the next few years, but it is also vulnerable to the Covid-19 pandemic, the ongoing crisis in the Middle East and other events on the global stage.
“This latest U.S.-Russian summit will only be a footnote in history. During this time, the leaders of both sides will focus on the conflicts of the past, not the challenges of the future,” Senior Director Harry Kazianis (Harry Kazianis) said. National Interest Center and contributing editor in 1945.
Kazinis added: “Russia is always angry with NATO expansion, because NATO expansion threatens its so-called sphere of interests in the vassal states of the old Soviet empire and continues to try to counter the United States in any way possible.” “At the same time, Putin. Seeing the ubiquitous threat, I am especially afraid that the United States is planning some kind of regime change conspiracy against him. The United States seems to be trapped in a small-scale Cold War mentality. Russia always casts evil empires again instead of conquered empires.
This kind of mini-cold war mentality is definitely active on social media. Since the two world leaders shook hands, users have been reacting in real time. Where the past conferences of heads of state have been slowly “digested” by political experts, scholars and especially professional diplomats, the discussion on Twitter at the meeting held today in Geneva is like a sporting event or an awards ceremony.
Some people praised the American leader while making a systematic sarcasm against the Russian president, with little time wasted.
CNN’s Jim Sciutto (@jimsciutto) tweeted: “Biden looked into Putin’s eyes and Putin immediately looked away.”
Jon Cooper (@joncoopertweets), the former president of Barack Obama’s campaign, added: “President Biden sits upright and looks confident. Putin slumped in his chair, looking like an unruly student. Was summoned to the principal’s office.”
Cooper also directed Putin directly, writing: “Putin is a coward at heart. President Biden knows this better than most people.”
As often happens to President Biden, someone publicly mocks him.
Conservative columnist Beneful “Benny” Johnson (@bennyjohnson) was quick to point out, “Biden brought his flashcard to the meeting with Putin.”
Rep. Lauren Boerbert (@laurenboerbert) added: “I certainly hope that Joe Biden will not accidentally return Alaska to Putin at their meeting. I pray for the United States today, because there has never been less than this. Qualified people are negotiating our representatives.”
“Does anyone think that the Biden-Putin meeting will not be a carnage of American interests?” Donald Trump Jr. thought.
The immediate question to ask is whether any of these responses are really necessary, even if the meeting has just begun? The power of social media is that anyone can comment in real time. While this may help watch the final season of sports events or popular TV shows, such meetings can have dire consequences, and misunderstandings can hinder any progress.
Similarly, it can be said that now should be the time for Americans to unite, even for those who did not vote for the president.Maybe this is where more countries need to draw inspiration from classic movies godfather – Follow the advice of “Never go against the family” and of course not be so public. American families should unite—at least until the outcome of the meeting is clear.
Kazianis said: “When the current U.S. president meets with foreign heads of state, Americans should not be divided-they should all work for success and serve the interests of the United States.”
“But Joe Biden will actually further enhance the interests of the United States in his interaction with Putin,” Kazianis also suggested. “It is more useful to find a way to bury the axe. However, this summit may be stuck in the past.”
Considering the state of national differences and the ability of social media to widen differences, it is not surprising that some people will react in this partisan way.
Roger Entner, principal analyst at Recon Analytics, said: “Cheerleaders always cheer for their team.” “It doesn’t matter whether you are in competitions or in politics. Cable news has largely become cable TV. Views, social media is no exception.”
Did any of these reactions actually help?
Josh Crandall, a technical analyst at Netpop Research, warned: “Whether it is through social media or countless channels of 24-hour news, real-time analysis of meaningful events is overwhelming.”
“Today, the line between qualified experts and the’Monday morning quarterback’ can’t be more blurred,” added Crandall, who has been following social media trends for more than a decade. “Many people who speak in the media think that ordinary people have forgotten what’qualified’ means from the perspective of mixing personal expansion and political parties, so many people just join the trend through social media. Increasing speed is in addition to making it Except for possible companies or influencers who preach to their followers, all these views seem to be of no benefit to anyone.”
Social media once allowed people to comment on the costumes of the Oscars, and now everyone seems to have their own opinions on how the president should handle his affairs with another world leader.
“It doesn’t seem to be over until Volkswagen decides to close it,” Crandall added. “From the perspective of social media usage at an all-time high, it is increasingly difficult for people to do this.”
