Presidential debates and Modi’s challenge in China

The leader behind Donald Trump Ukraine imbroglio he is now sticking his paddle in the presidential debate this fall. The former mayor of New York, addressed to the president, was nominated by Trump to continue more than the three traditional debates between the two major candidates for the party before the election.

For years, the presidential debate has been sponsored by a non-profit commission overseen by both sides. They tend to be quite volatile – in part because of all the conditions that are usually imposed in any campaign. It is quite obvious that Trump believes that Biden has lost a step, an impression that he believes can bring to Americans with his scorched strategy for discussing the land. But Biden himself is not a bad debate – although he has never been in top form during the debate on the Democratic campaign, he has performed strongly in the debate for vice presidents while on Barack Obama’s ticket.

Trump’s gambit is an interesting challenge for Biden. If he refuses a moving series of debates, Trump will argue that Biden can’t handle the heat and wants to stay in his basement until November. But why should Biden’s camp deal with Giuliani? his old former rivalwho made Ukraine investigate false allegations of corruption against him? And tactically, why give Trump more opportunities to achieve a level playing field?

If Trump wanted to play fair, he would not choose Giuliani. The inclusion of the nasty pro-Trump street fighter suggests that the goal is less to embrace a traditional social exercise in democracy and more as just another back room scheme to make Biden look bad.

– Do you notice that the Supreme Court does not like me?

The Supreme Court blocked on Thursday The Trump administration’s attempt to end delayed actions to arrive as childrenwhich prevents the deportation of hundreds of thousands of people who were illegally brought to the United States as children. The decisive vote in decision five or four was cast by Chief Conservative Judge John Robertswho wrote this post. “We are not deciding whether DACA or its repeal are sound policies,” Roberts wrote. “The wisdom of these decisions does not interest us.” We only ask whether the agency has complied with the procedural requirement to provide a reasoned explanation for its actions. “

Postcard from Delhi

The deadliest collision between Indian and Chinese troops since 1975 took place this week in a remote valley in the Himalayas. Until last week, the two sides appeared to be trying to de-escalate tensions along the region’s disputed border. But Monday’s fierce battle between border troops proves how quickly unresolved issues between neighboring giants can turn deadly.
It all started with a tent, a source in the Indian Armed Forces tells me. Chinese troops had erected the shelter on disputed land, and Indian soldiers and the commanding officer dismantled it, the source said, adding that Chinese troops left – but returned later that day with reinforcements armed with stones and bamboo poles pierced with nails. The firearm is not carried by Chinese or Indian troops on the border between China and India.

They fought for at least four hours, the source said, in a bloody brawl in which 20 Indian soldiers were killed. A statement from the Indian military mentioned casualties on both sides, although China did not acknowledge its side’s death. (CNN did not independently confirm the details of the collision.)

For 36 hours after that, the populist Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi did not make a public protest. “Why is the prime minister silent. Why is he hiding? That’s enough. We need to know what happened,” tweeted Rahul Gandhi, a senior member of India’s main opposition party. But on Wednesday afternoon, Modi draws a line in the sand: “India wants peace,” he said, “but it is able to give a decent response when provoked.” The sacrifice of Indian soldiers will not be in vain, he added.

Here is Modi’s dilemma: taking bold diplomatic or economic action against China may cancel border negotiations – but little or no action could accelerate attempts to invade China and further upset Modi’s domestic support.

Here in New Delhi, 60 people, including army veterans, protested in front of the Chinese embassy. Posters and fake cards of the Chinese president were burned in some parts of the country. As of Wednesday, #BoycottChina and #GoChina have been on trend on Twitter in India. There is a growing demand to divert Chinese applications and goods. And there are loud noises from the termination of Chinese contracts in the telecommunications and railway sectors. Blinded by nationalist sentiments, the main fact that China is one of India’s largest trading partners is overtaken by boiling Indians.

Countering China’s relentless attempts at regional hegemony is now one of the biggest challenges Modi faces in his second term, especially after informal summits with Xi Jinping in Wuhan and South India failed to overcome the lack of confidence. on the border shared by the two nuclear powers. – Vedic Court of CNN writes until Meanwhile from New Delhi
