The World Is Watching
America is the brightest beacon of democracy in the world. So imagine the global shock at this week’s violence and lawlessness in Washington, D.C. Our enemies see this as their moment to strike.
Dictatorships across the world are seizing this opportunity to denounce democracy. Communist China is using it to justify its brutal suppression of Hong Kong’s pro-freedom movement. Russia and Iran have chimed in, too. The world’s worst regimes see a chance to undermine America and advance their own oppressive power.
Stopping them starts by preventing such violence from ever happening again. America sets the standard. We must always meet that standard to lead the world.
