The Impact of the US Election on the Global Stage

The 2022 Presidential Election: Foreign Policy Set to Play a Pivotal Role

In the upcoming US presidential election, foreign policy is expected to play a more significant role than usual, according to Harvard Kennedy School’s Stephen Walt. Despite the economy not helping Biden as much as expected and few big success stories in his foreign policy, Walt believes that foreign policy will be a key issue in the election.

In a recent interview on GZERO World with Ian Bremmer, Walt discusses the potential impact of a second term for either Biden or Trump on US foreign policy. While there may be differences between the two candidates in terms of their attitudes towards globalism and nationalism, Walt suggests that these differences may not be as drastic as some may think. For example, he notes that on key issues like China policy, Biden has refined and continued many of Trump’s approaches, particularly focusing on high-tech.

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 or on US public television. Local listings should be checked for the show’s schedule.
