A cheat sheet has revealed Joe Biden’s ‘talking points’ for the G7 Summit held in Hiroshima, Japan. The contents of this document offer a glimpse into the administration’s priorities and policies. The document highlighted the unity of the G7 nations, describing them as not just allies but also the driving force behind global economic growth.
Perhaps the most consequential aspect of the cheat sheet was Biden’s reference to his key economic policies. He proudly pointed to his legislative achievements, such as signing the CHIPS Act and the Inflation Reduction Act into law. However, many feel that these policies have failed to address the root causes of economic challenges faced by everyday Americans, such as rising inflation and the erosion of domestic manufacturing.
Moreover, Biden touted his administration’s implementation of targeted export controls on semiconductors. While safeguarding critical technologies is crucial, people worry that excessive regulation could stifle innovation and impede free market competition.
Many have noted that the ‘talking points’ sheet is actually a full-blown, pre-written transcript, which is unusual, even for Biden, who typically uses more concise cheat sheets.

Thank you, Fumio for hosting us here in your hometown of Hiroshima.
All of us gathered around this table are not only the closest of allies-we are the engine of global economic growth. Over the past year I have spoken to each of you individually about our key economic policies.
Over the past year I signed the CHIPS Act and the Inflation Reduction Act into law. I announced new targeted export controls on a narrow set semiconductors. And my Treasury Secretary has outlined a plan to evolve the Multilateral Development Banks, and we have nominated a new World Bank president… This is the first G7 Summit where a President of the United States can unambiguously say that the United States is on a path ultimate commitments.
The sheet also mentioned the administration’s plans to evolve the Multilateral Development Banks, accompanied by the nomination of a new World Bank president.
The US has lost significant influence in the global financial sphere in recent years, as the Chinese have created a formidable foreign economic force.
Finally, Biden seized the opportunity to proclaim that the United States is on a path to fulfilling its ultimate commitments. While this statement may sound reassuring, many out there remain skeptical, as they believe the administration’s policies and actions could weaken America’s position on the global stage.
The cheat sheet shows the stark contrast between the Biden administration’s rhetoric and the concerns of conservatives. As the engine of global economic growth, it is vital for the United States to prioritize policies that safeguard American interests, protect individual freedoms, and ensure economic prosperity for all citizens.
