U.S. President Joe Biden delivers remarks at a virtual event hosted by the Munich Security Conference in the East Room of the White House on Feb. 19, 2021, in Washington, D.C. 

President Joe Biden’s address to G-7 leaders at the virtual Munich Security Conference last month made it clear there has been a fundamental change in American policy, and that now the U.S. “will work closely with our European Union partners and the capitals across the continent – from Rome to Riga – to meet the range of shared challenges we face.”

The address prompted an exuberant Boris Johnson to tweet: “America is unreservedly back as the leader of the free world and that is a fantastic thing.” We agree with the British prime minister that U.S. leadership is indispensable when it comes to advancing liberal democracy in the 21st century, just as it was in the 20th century.
