Monday, 2nd November 2020 — Ahead of tomorrow’s US election, political consultancy Rasmussen Global has laid out in broad strokes some of the foreign policy topics that will test the next US President, and whether we are likely to see a continuity approach or a rupture from the Trump Administration.

Rasmussen Global CEO Anders Fogh Rasmussen, who led NATO from 2009-2014, said:

“Only Americans will vote for their next President – but their decision will impact all of us.”

 

“The world is on fire and it needs determined American leadership. There’s no doubt that President Trump’s approach has had some impact, such as raising the ante with China. But his transactional approach to allies and reluctance to criticize despots has undermined the liberal order.

 

“President Biden’s inclination would be more multilateral, focusing on working through alliances and with allies. However, restoring US global leadership will not be a small task, especially as it began retreating from that position long before Trump was inaugurated.”
