The race is on for the next President of the United States is reaching the finish line. Europe and the rest of the world are following the pre-election developments with bated breath. In terms of shaping a future for the country, it is no exaggeration to say that the 2020 elections will be the most important election of this century. The future of American democracy is on the ballot, as is the US’ outlook on Europe and the world.
Whether we will see a Trump re-election or a Biden Presidency, the future of the EU transatlantic relationship hangs in the balance. In view of the challenging domestic political environment and dire need to reconcile the country and restore US democracy, will foreign policy be a key priority at all? What types of policy should Europeans expect in view of the US’ commitment to the WHO, the Paris climate accords, and the Iran nuclear deal? What will the next Administration mean for transatlantic trade, in particular in view of Brexit?
Join us on the day of the elections, when we will be speaking to former Senator Tom Daschle, who will give his insights into what a post-election U.S might look like, and how its global relationships might be shaped.
