Before Biden took office, there was so much talk of “restoring alliances”:
Some world leaders told Biden that his return to the White House would be a sure way to restore western alliances that Trump has dramatically fractured https://t.co/RxleT0zX6W

Biden is bringing in top talent, including all stars @wendyrsherman and Victoria Nuland, to help restore American greatness, rebuild our alliances, and protect our nation. Can't get to work with this team.https://t.co/tT7PZ5KSYT

Colin Powell: Joe Biden will be a president we will all be proud to salute. He will trust our diplomats…, not the flattery of dictators.
He will restore our leadership, and our moral authority…He will restore the alliances we need. Today, we are a country divided.

Here’s just the latest example showing that it depends on what your definition of “restoring alliances” is:

CNN’s Jake Tapper doesn’t see Biden’s “restoring alliances” promise panning out:

Biden’s not living up to any of his promises because the wheels are coming off everywhere. At least CNN might be catching on a little.

Our relationships with allies didn’t need to be “restored.”
It was perfect under President Trump. Biden destroyed it. The whole world knows it. https://t.co/2YAu70taD9

And the media certainly did their part to help Biden sell his “restoring alliances” empty promise.
