The first week of 2021 saw something that movies could never believably depict. It was captured live, with the US Capitol coming under attack from protesters who broke in while Congress was in joint session finalising the voting on who will be US President for the next four years.
The world watched in shock and horror on Wednesday as a mob of Donald Trump supporters, encouraged by the president, stormed the US Capitol in a bid to thwart lawmakers from their constitutional duty.
General Secretary of the Communist Party of Việt Nam and State President Nguyễn Phú Trọng, and Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc on Tuesday sent congratulatory messages to President-elect Joe Biden over his recent victory in the US election.
Now, with President Donald Trump soon to depart, we are left wondering whether Biden and his policy decisions will prove to be a boost to Việt Nam – and fulfil his supporters’ hopes as “Leader of the Free World”.
President Donald Trump came his closest yet to admitting election defeat Monday after the government agency meant to ease Joe Biden's transition into the White House said it was finally lifting its unprecedented block on assistance.
