Joe Biden is seeking to renew the transatlantic relationship during a number of major summit meetings in Europe on his first foreign trip as US president. But after four years of Donald Trump’s assault on Washington’s closest alliances, what does public opinion on both sides of the Atlantic think about the future of US leadership, and what does it mean for hopes of addressing some of Western countries’ biggest joint challenges? Alexandra de Hoop Scheffer and Irene Braam join Greg and Jonathan to discuss their new Transatlantic Trends survey from the German Marshall Fund.
