The foreign policy team Biden appoints matters less than the world they inherit, policies they pursue, and the pressure they get from progressives.
The only way to stop this crisis from spiraling out of control is for the world community — and Joe Biden — to condemn the act.
Biden can immediately reverse some of Trump’s most disastrous decisions. And each one can set the stage for broader progressive foreign policy initiatives.
Biden may tone down Trump’s trade war and bring back some limited human rights advocacy, but there may be more continuity than either administration admits.
Even a lame-duck Congress must remember their actions have global consequences too.
No one expects Biden to tap dedicated anti-imperialists for his foreign policy team, but several Obama-era diplomats would be a welcome alternative to “the blob.”
The world is banning nuclear weapons. The U.S. needs to get on board.
Americans can’t ignore the world beyond their borders, but the last thing they need is to embark upon a fresh search for distant monsters to destroy.
Bolivians overwhelmingly rejected a U.S.-backed coup regime. The U.S. should take it as a sign to abandon regime change — and rejoin the international community.
If Trump loses, we can’t just go back to the status quo. On foreign policy especially, movements need to be ready to push a new administration hard.
