Susan Glasser, a staff writer and Washington columnist for the New Yorker, discusses the upcoming US presidential election and what it means for American international leadership. Is Trumpism a phenomenon that will outlast Trump himself? What does the US stand for in the post-COVID world? Joe Biden has promised “restoration,” while a second Trump term promises four more years of disruption—disruption that might be even more significant than that in his first term. For this talk, Glasser was in discussion with Daniel Benjamin, president of the American Academy in Berlin.
