American foreign policy is not a preeminent issue in the U.S. presidential election. But the next U.S. president’s foreign policy priorities and stance on international cooperation will shape world affairs and redefine relations to allies and rivals alike. This is particularly true for the European Union as rifts between Europe and the United States have become deeper during the Trump presidency. How would four more years of “America First” affect the transatlantic partnership? What is the foreign policy agenda of the Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden? Will any conflicts of interest between Europe and the US outlast the Trump presidency? David Deißner, Executive Director at Atlantik-Brücke, and Tyson Barker, Deputy Executive Director and Fellow at Aspen Germany, talk with Daniel S. Hamilton, Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation Professor at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), and Rüdiger Lentz, Executive Director at Aspen Germany, to address these questions on the future of the transatlantic partnership.
