The Impact of the US Election on the Global Stage

In the upcoming US presidential election, foreign policy is set to play a more prominent role than usual, according to Stephen Walt of Harvard Kennedy School. The economy has not helped Biden as much as expected, and there are few success stories to highlight in his foreign policy. Walt discussed the potential impact of a second term for either Biden or Trump on US foreign policy in a recent interview with Ian Bremmer on GZERO World.

In the interview, Walt suggested that while the differences between Biden and Trump in terms of foreign policy may not be as significant as some believe, there are crucial differences between the two candidates. For example, while Biden has continued many of Trump’s approaches to China policy, particularly focusing on high-tech, he has also taken a more nuanced stance on issues like human rights abuses and territorial disputes. On the other hand, Trump is known for his unilateralist and nationalist approach to foreign policy.

Despite potential similarities in outcomes in regions like the Middle East and Ukraine, Walt believes that Trump’s second term could lead to a less supportive stance towards Europe and NATO. He emphasizes that Trump is a nationalist and unilateralist, whereas Biden is more of a globalist and internationalist. This key difference could significantly impact US foreign policy in the coming years.
