Donald Trump has been president for almost one year now. His election marked the beginning of uncertainty for the international order and many close allies of the United States. The Trump presidency poses a major challenge for Germany in particular: Its prosperity and success depends on the stability of the liberal order, and the United States as its most important ally.
In light of these developments, one of the biggest challenges for the new German government will be to manage relations with the United States. Accordingly, Thomas Kleine-Brockhoff, together with a group of German foreign policy experts, has authored a new American strategy for Germany, which discusses the new reality of U.S.–German relations and how to move forward.
From pursuing key national interests and moderating conflicts to building a bridge to a better future for transatlantic relations, he offers his view on the best course of action for the new coalition government.
