A French journalist predicted the U.S., the fate of the Soviet Union
30 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, a similar fate threatens US. This opinion was expressed by columnist of Le Figaro, Nicolas Bavr.
The reason for this, in his opinion, is "suicidal" policy of President Donald trump, plunging the United States into a civil war.
As the author writes, today's America has experienced four crises at the same time. Epidemic COVID-19, according to Bavr, became for US a kind of new pearl Harbor, which 110 has already claimed thousands of lives. This resulted in a recession of historic proportions, when three months became unemployed 45 million people, and GDP in 2020 is projected to fall by 6.5%. The murder of George Floyd police in Minneapolis provoked race riots and looting in American cities, reminiscent of the protests of 1968 after the assassination of Martin Luther king. Finally, the populism of Donald trump with his intentions to resort to the law of 1807, on the suppression of the uprising and to entrust the restoration of order in the country, the army, contrary to the rule of law and the objections of the military leadership, plunges the United States into chaos, the journalist writes.
The columnist notes that actions to bypass Congress, the pressure on the justice and the army head of the White house destroys the existing system of checks and balances. Despite all the obvious disadvantages of the policy of trump, he has not lost his chances for re-election in 2020. Bavr stresses that this is largely due to the weakness of democratic candidate Joe Biden.
An earlier edition of the Jerusalem Post wrote that the United States is rapidly losing ground and "declining" than are Russia, China and other countries.
As the author of the material, the decline caused by the protests that swept the United States, and the epidemic of coronavirus.
Russian Senator Alexey Pushkov, in turn, said that the US joined in the days of "confusion".
