DEMOCRACY - In Retreat Worldwide

DEMOCRACY - In Retreat Worldwide

"Democracy is in Retreat in the U.S. and around the world, report finds.  What happened?" PBS NewsHour 1/16/2018

Answer, Donald Trump.

DEMOCRACY: The United States is "Presidential Republic"


SUMMARY:  The United States is becoming less engaged in the world in order to focus on fixing problems at home, but that shift is creating a power vacuum that will be filled by countries that don’t share U.S. values, according to Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich, and Madeleine Albright former Secretary of State under President Bill Clinton.

Kasich and Albright talked to the PBS NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff about a report released Tuesday by democracy advocacy group Freedom House, which says democracy worldwide today “finds itself battered and weakened,” a trend it has reported for the past 12 years.  It noted this year a “striking” withdrawal by the United States due to the Trump administration’s “America First” stance.
