Every generation seems to believe that their presidential election is historic. This generation of Americans, who is about to vote in November, is not different. But then again, it is hard to overstate the stakes of this coming election.
Two diametrically opposed visions of the United States are facing off, especially when you compare President Trump to his rival, former Vice-President Biden in the areas of economic policy, foreign policy and leadership style.
Would another Trump presidency be any different than the first one?
What would a Biden presidency change? For the United States?
And for the rest of the world?
We’ll look at the political dynamics of this campaign and the most significant policy questions that are at stake. We’ll explore the consequences of the election for the rest of the world, in particular in terms of American presence abroad, global economic and trade relations and the future of the relationship between the West and China.
