The economic, military, and soft power of the USA is unlike anything the world has ever seen. Paraphrasing former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, living with the USA is like sleeping with an elephant: we are affected by every twitch and grunt of the behemoth. Yet, what the differing policies, personas, and governing philosophies of former US President Barack Obama and current US President Donald Trump indicate, is that the impact of US Presidential elections sends profound shockwaves across the globe in markedly different ways, depending on who, and what party, is elected to lead the USA. Although there is no question that the power and influence of the US is waning from its post-WWII heyday, the US election matters not only for America, but for the world. This Global Insights panel examines the global impact of the US Presidential Election in depth, discussing how the next US administration will handle today’s COVID-19 pandemic, economic crises, climate change, the rise of nations like China, and the deleterious influence the Trump Administration has made on multilateral efforts to solve global governance problems.
