Every new presidential administration faces its own set of foreign policy challenges, whatever the political climate at home and abroad. According to Eric Edelman, the incoming Biden administration faces an increasingly complex and dangerous world, as well as a fractious political environment at home. How should the Biden administration navigate America’s foreign policy? What should it focus on? In this Conversation, Edelman shares his perspective on the foreign policy challenges we face. Edelman calls for a renewed effort to defend America’s core interests while reforming and rebuilding alliance structures and institutions that have helped America prosper. While acknowledging key challenges to the enterprise, Edelman argues that America must reengage in leadership around the globe.

    “According to Eric Edelman, the incoming Biden administration faces an increasingly complex and dangerous world”

    Well, someone needs to clue Edelman in to all the peace deals that President Trump achieved as well as the decimation of ISIS. The world is less dangerous thanks to President Trump. First President in 40 years not to start any wars. That probably gives warmonger Kristol the sads.

    Edelman calls for a renewed effort to defend America’s core interests while reforming and rebuilding alliance structures and institutions that have helped America prosper.

    I suppose this means sending jobs overseas and kissing Xi’s hind quarters?

    No need to “re-engage.” Build on what President Trump achieved. President Trump was far more engaged than his immediate predecessor who simply drone-bombed people while sending pallets of cash to the Iranian Mullahs.
