President Donald Trump continues to cast doubt on the election results, further fueling conspiracy theories despite the fact that his lawyers have suffered defeat after defeat in the courts with their numerous lawsuits. What does Trump hope for at this point? In the meantime, Joe Biden’s preparations to take office on January 20, 2021, are under way despite the disruptive efforts of his predecessor. How is he preparing for his presidency during the transition period? What is at the top of his agenda and will Biden keep his promise to reflect America’s diversity in his cabinet? The America’s Choice hosts David Deißner and Rüdiger Lentz are joined by Dr. Anna Sauerbrey, Member of the Editorial Board and Head of Opinion Department at Tagesspiegel, and Dr. David Sirakov, Director of the Atlantic Academy Rhineland-Palatinate, to discuss these and other questions on the transition.
“America’s Choice – Der US-Wahlcast” is a German-language podcast on the 2020 U.S. election, co-produced by the Aspen Institute Germany and the Atlantik-Brücke. The podcast is available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and other platforms.
