The Impact of the US Election on the Global Stage

As the US presidential election approaches, foreign policy is expected to play a more prominent role than usual, according to Stephen Walt of Harvard Kennedy School. In an interview with Ian Bremmer on GZERO World, Walt discussed the potential impact of a second term for either Biden or Trump on US foreign policy.

Walt noted that while the economy has not helped Biden as much as expected and there are few big success stories to tout in his foreign policy, he believes that the differences between the two candidates in terms of foreign policy may not be as drastic as some may think. For example, in the case of China policy, Biden has refined and continued many of Trump’s approaches, particularly focusing on high-tech. However, Walt acknowledges that there are crucial differences between the two candidates, particularly in their attitudes towards globalism and nationalism.

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.

To learn more about these insights and analysis, viewers can watch GZERO World with Ian Bremmer every week on gzeromedia.com/gzeroworld or on US public television. Local listings should be checked for the show’s schedule.
