The Impact of the US Election on Global Relations

The upcoming US presidential election will see a more significant role for foreign policy, according to Stephen Walt of the Harvard Kennedy School. This is due to the fact that the economy is not favoring Biden as much as expected and there are no major foreign policy successes to tout.

Walt believes that while there may be differences between a second Biden or Trump term in terms of foreign policy, these differences may not be as significant as many expect. He notes that on important issues such as China policy, there isn’t a huge gap between the two candidates. Biden’s approach has built on Trump’s policies, especially focusing on high-tech issues.

Despite these similarities, Walt does highlight potential areas of difference between Trump and Biden in foreign policy. He suggests that Trump’s nationalist and unilateralist tendencies could lead him to take a less supportive stance towards Europe and NATO in certain areas. However, he also notes that both candidates have similar outcomes in areas such as the Middle East and Ukraine.

Overall, Walt’s analysis suggests that while there are differences between Trump and Biden in foreign policy, the outcomes may not be drastically different in certain areas. Viewers can catch GZERO World with Ian Bremmer every week on or on US public television.
