You’re listening to the second episode of our 2020 presidential election series. In this series, POFA will cover the progressives’ as well as the Biden and Trump administrations’ approach to foreign policy. We will also examine the role of technology in election interference and the importance of polling Americans on foreign policy issues.

As a reminder for the election series, while POFA hosts will be following up on questions, POFA hosts are not meant to overtly debate the positions of our guests, rather, we will be leaving that critical thinking to you, the listener. At the conclusion of the election series, POFA hosts will be casually discussing their personal thoughts on the series as a whole!
In this episode, we are discussing the Trump administration foreign policy strategy as well as how foreign policy might differ between a Trump second term versus a Biden administration. We will examine President Trump’s top foreign policy priorities, including US-China and US-Russia relations as well as the US’ commitment to NATO. Joining us today is Dr. James Carafano.
James Jay Carafano, a leading expert in national security and foreign policy challenges, is the vice president of Heritage’s Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Institute for National Security and Foreign Policy and the E. W. Richardson Fellow.
