Global Remix: America & The World
Has America lost its preeminent place in the world? Emerging from World War II as the first among equals, the United States became the architect and leader of a series of overlapping international alliances and agreements that relied on cooperation to seed the unrivaled progress and prosperity of the post-war era. But the popular platform of “America First,” which propelled President Trump to victory and symbolized his world view, has effectively shattered that bipartisan foreign policy consensus.
On this edition of the show, a panel of nationally recognized authorities on international affairs examine President Biden’s efforts to rebuild America’s standing in the world and reinvigorate the country’s alliances. In the wake of the country’s most consequential foreign policy election in the post-war era, the panelists also debate how to project American power and how to protect the country from foreign threats.
