As the United States prepares to transition its 45th President into office, citizens on both sides of the Atlantic look to the future of our transatlantic partnership with uncertainty. Ivan Vejvoda, Senior Vice President of Programs at GMF, joins Kevin Cottrell to examine the impact that Trump’s election may have on European politics in the conclusion of our Leadership Perspectives series on the U.S. in transition. This final episode highlights a unique European perspective on how the electoral victory of an anti-establishment candidate in the United States is being interpreted across the Atlantic. The conversation examines the kind of momentum that this victory could give to similar forces in Europe—particularly in the Netherlands, France, and Germany, which go to the polls in the coming months.
