The Impact of the US Election on Global Relations

Foreign Policy Takes Center Stage in Upcoming US Presidential Election: Stephen Walt on GZERO World with Ian Bremmer

According to a recent interview with Harvard Kennedy School’s Stephen Walt on GZERO World with Ian Bremmer, the role of foreign policy will be more significant in the upcoming US presidential election. Walt believes that this is due to the economy not favoring Biden as much as expected and the lack of major foreign policy successes to tout.

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

However, Walt does acknowledge that there are significant differences between Trump and Biden in foreign policy. He argues that their second administrations may have different outcomes in areas such as the Middle East and Ukraine. While he sees potential for Trump to take a less supportive stance towards Europe and NATO due to his nationalist and unilateralist tendencies, he believes that overall their approaches may not be drastically different in certain areas.

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.
