The foreign policy focus of the US presidential election: Professor Stephen Walt’s analysis on GZERO World

The Impact of the US Election on Global Relations

The upcoming US presidential election will place a greater emphasis on foreign policy, according to Stephen Walt, a professor of international relations at the Harvard Kennedy School. This is due to the economy not favoring Biden as much as expected and the lack of significant foreign policy successes for either candidate.

In a recent interview on GZERO World with Ian Bremmer, Walt explained that while there are differences between Trump and Biden in terms of foreign policy, their second administrations may have similar outcomes in certain areas. For example, he believes that their approaches to China policy could be similar, with both focusing on high-tech issues.

However, Walt also notes that there are potential differences between Trump and Biden in areas such as the Middle East and Ukraine. He specifically mentions that Trump may take a less supportive stance towards Europe and NATO due to his nationalist tendencies.

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.
