If Trump is acquitted, will the US ever regain its standing in the world?

He damaged our allied relationships so badly during the last 4 years and did his best to take down our government. How much confidence will the world have that this wouldn't happen again if he's acquitted now?
What will the ramifications be? An acquittal will certainly have consequences, wouldn't it? What might they be?

1. I believe only if we are to rid the US of these QOPs. Germany was able to come

back from Hitler but it was only after they messed up and didn't go after all the Nazis. When they finally did Germany became a country to be respected.


So......we need to go after all the Nazis.

2. Of course.

Biden is going to rebuild relationships. He already has myriad contacts around the world from his time as VP.

An acquittal, in my opinion, is mostly irrelevant in context because nearly everyone has already assumed that it's by far the most likely outcome. The world knows he's guilty and the world knows the GOP is going to let him off.

3. He will be acquitted, but it will be on the republicans, and the historical record that was

presented today will be against only those that vote to acquitt

4. What standing? We have the most powerful military that money can buy - other than that we are a

declining empire. I suspect that most people around the world realize this and have for several decades.
