Is America Returning As A Global Leader?

America largely abdicated from the ‘throne’ of global leadership during the previous administration led by former President Donald Trump — so will the new administration return to being a global leader? In 2019, Ivo Daalder joined阿尔玛尔to discuss America’s inward turn under President Trump. He returned this week to the阿尔玛尔podcast team彼得舍史和慕尼黑纳森谈到拜登政府在美国外交政策的优先事项中的转变及其意图恢复美国作为可信赖的盟友的看法。

Ivo Daalder是芝加哥全球事务委员会主席,新出版的新出版社The Empty Throne, America’s Abdication of Global Leadership.Daalder was the U.S. ambassador to NATO from 2009 to 2013, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, a professor at the University of Maryland School of Public Policy and director for European Affairs at the NSC under Bill Clinton.

俄罗斯的一个新的光学

在新的政府从特朗普时代的转变中,首先在列表中是美国 - 俄罗斯的关系。据达泰德介绍,Joseph Biden总统进入椭圆形办公室,与冷战以来的任何其他总统都有一个更幅度的俄罗斯展望。

“[前美国总统]比尔克林顿认为更多经济援助将帮助俄罗斯总统鲍里斯·谢尔斯汀改变经济和加强民主。[前美国总统]乔治W.布什因弗拉基米尔·普京总统的眼睛和他的灵魂感到着。[前美国总统]巴拉克奥巴马答应在与迪特里梅德韦杰夫总统的关系中按“重置”按钮。[前美国总统]唐纳德特朗普坚持认为,他与俄罗斯总统普京的良好个人关系是与俄罗斯关系的“一件好事”,“达拉德说。

与克里姆林宫的关系只是新政府宣布的许多改变之一。在过去的四年里,大帝表示,在特朗普政府用一系列交易和双边举措中取代了国际秩序后,美国在全球王位上放弃了它的地方,主要是离开美国。

回归多边主义

President Biden campaigned on a return to multilateral foreign policy and re-joined many global initiatives on his first day in the Oval Office. But as the U.S. makes its long-awaited return to the global table, is it possible to “build back better,” — to use Biden’s campaign’s tagline?


“Under President Trump’s leadership, the United States’ departure from the global table led to a significant power vacuum. Our book,The Empty Throne,是written at a time that China was rising, economically, militarily, and increasingly, politically, and becom[ing] a major global player,” explains Ivo Daalder. As the world divides between China and the United States, every country now faces multiple challenges that require a global response.

China and North Korea

“China is a great power and it’s not going away. We can’t wish it away. And we certainly can’t just contain or confront it away, which seemed to be [the actions taken] towards the end of the Trump administration.”

“拜登政府的基本问题是'你如何处理一个崛起的力量?'你必须通过对抗的混合来处理它,或者更好的竞争和共存。我们不会找到一个中国和美国不存在的世界。“

Daadler thinks that North Korea could be an immediate challenge for the new administration. “We’ve had three summits between President Trump and Kim Jong-un. We have, in some ways, normalized the existence of the North Korean regime. And in response to that outreach, the North Koreans are doubling down on their nuclear program, doubling down on their missile program, expanding the capacity to reach immediate neighbors, U.S. territories in the Pacific, and increasingly the capacity to hit the United States with nuclear weapons delivered by land and perhaps sea-based missiles.”

A Complicated Stew of Challenges

总统拜登总统进入椭圆形办公室,明确表示返回全球表的愿望 - 但它不再是相同的表格。Today, the world faces the seemingly unstoppable rise of Chinese President Xi Jinping, the increasing repressive streak of Russian President Putin, the void left by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe’s health and resignation, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s internal struggles, Israelian Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s indictment, and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s inept bluster.

“Biden’s foreign policy team, a seasoned group, will re-enter the global arena with strength, but without a bully pulpit,” says阿尔玛尔’sPeter Schechter., noting “it’s a different world, one that requires different conversations.” As阿尔玛尔’sMuni Jensen在第一集中的笔记,“美国四年前的美国王座已经改变了。不要过度使用类比,但它不再被一个大椅子上的国王占据。它看起来更像是一个带有新的和多样化的骑士的圆桌会议,每个人都有一种语音和优势的方式更广泛地传播。“

Ivo daalder.concludes that the U.S., weighed down by its own struggles, no longer has all the answers, nor all the money — and not even the same credibility. “Military might speak loudly, but it is not sufficient. The rest of the world has seen an exemplary democracy almost fall to pieces and is cautiously waiting for reconstruction,” says Daalder.
