For example, while President Trump viewed the World Trade Organization with suspicion and derision, there are hopes that Mr Biden will focus instead on encouraging reform and modernisation of the organisation, which policies global trade. 3: A reset of the EU trade relationship The spat between US aircraft maker Boeing and European rival Airbus over claims of unfair state help preceded President Trump. But it was he who decided to levy tariffs on $7.5bn (£5,7bn) worth of European luxuries in response. Five questions for Joe Biden on the economy‘Let’s work together!’ World reacts to Biden winFive reasons Biden won the electionWhy Donald Trump lost Chinese handbags, French wine and Scottish cashmere: all have been weaponised by President Donald Trump, the self-proclaimed tariff man. 2: Same dream, different means Ultimately, while there is potential for a change in trade stance from a new president, his bulging domestic in-tray may distract him for some time. That is likely to mean offering an olive branch to the EU, with an offer to pour (lower tariff) oil on troubled waters. Here’s five things to be aware of: Mr Biden prefers the idea of strength in numbers – a multilateral approach – by getting traditional allies onside. With US unemployment having more than doubled during the course of the pandemic, promises to bolster livelihoods on home soil have a potent appeal. Related Topics Mr Biden’s pledges include penalising US firms that move jobs abroad. And like Mr Trump, he harbours concerns over China’s ambitions and way of doing business. There is more to trade than shipping containers lining ports. That was after the UK’s proposed Internal Market Bill risked the imposition of a physical customs border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Yet Moyes has impressed with his work on the training ground and, lest it should be forgotten, inherited a squad from whom only Paul Scholes is missing since they secured a record 20th league title by an impressive 11 points. And, although United still have Rio Ferdinand’s testimonial against Seville on Friday and Sunday’s Community Shield encounter with Wigan to navigate, Moyes is relishing what is to come. “I just cannot wait to get the season started,” the Scot told Inside United. “As I have said before, I know what it is like to walk out at Old Trafford as the manager of the opposition, so to step out in front of more than 75,000 fans as the Manchester United manager will be a special moment for me. “Being given the chance to manage a club like this was a dream come true for me and probably more so given that the previous manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, wanted me to be in charge of the club. “My sole goal is to be successful and have a winning team. I hope that, over the years, we can enjoy plenty of success. I’m really looking forward to it.” A wish not to have his focus distracted has been cited as one of the reasons why Moyes has elected not to face the media ahead of the Wigan game, even though such pre-Shield conferences were a regular occurrence under Ferguson. In selling 47,000 tickets, United’s supporters certainly view the Wigan encounter as a meaningful exercise, for which they will have the largest following for a club side at Wembley since it was re-opened in 2007. Press Association On the face of it, the summer has been a difficult one for the new Manchester United manager. His search for midfield reinforcements has so far proved fruitless, United have recorded just two victories from six pre-season games, against a depleted A League outfit and Hong Kong-based Kitchee FC, and the Wayne Rooney saga refuses to go away. The game against Owen Coyle’s Sky Bet Championship outfit also represents an opportunity to get his hands on some silverware, even if the former Everton boss feels the credit will belong to his predecessor. “I will be trying to make this the first trophy of many,” he stated. “But, if we win, it’s really something that will have been earned by Sir Alex. “It’s because of his good work in the Premier League last season that we’re in the Community Shield. I’ll do my best to finish off the job but it’s Sir Alex who will deserve a lot of the credit if we’re successful at Wembley.” David Moyes cannot wait for the new season to start.
