Gold Edges Higher, But Faces Worst Week in Two Months

Freedom House Says Democracy in US Has Weakened
Tuesday, 5 February 2019 19:28 WIB | GLOBAL |AmerikaGlobal

Freedom House says that democracy in the United States has weakened significantly in recent years and blames U.S. President Donald Trump for œon going attacks on the rule of law, fact-based journalism, and other principles and norms of democracy.

The U.S.-based nongovernmental group warned in its annual report on democracy that it has seen similar patterns in other nations where democracy was ultimately overtaken by authoritarianism.

œThe greatest danger comes from the fact that American democracy is not infinitely durable, especially if a president shows little respect for its tenets, said Michael Abramowitz, president of Freedom House.

While the group said the freedom rating for the United States shows that the country is still a robust democracy by global standards, it says its democracy has weakened significantly. It says the current U.S. score puts American democracy on a level with Greece, Croatia and Mongolia, well below other long-standing democracies such as Germany, France and Britain.

Around the world, Freedom House said that 68 countries suffered net declines in political rights and civil liberties during 2018, with only 50 registering gains. It said this marked the 13th consecutive year of decline in global freedom.
