An important pillar of president Trump’s foreign affairs policy is a tough stance on US/China relationships, which has practically been given shape by among other the introduction of tariffs on a wide range of Chinese products and supplies (with similar rules being imposed by China). Current expectation is that Biden will also take a relatively stance on China, however it is also know that Biden is more outspoken in favor of trade agreements and international trading. In this context, the trade tariffs between the US and EU will also be discussed.
The second topic that will be discussed during this seminar, is the immigration policies envisaged by both candidates. Visas and other immigration related aspects have been changed under the Trump administration (in part as a result of the COVID-19 crisis), whilst it also is known that Biden has opposing views.
