Europeans have looked on in disbelief and dismay as America’s alliances with its most important transatlantic allies have come under attack by an isolationist president who sees personal political gain in undermining common liberal democratic values. But after the Black Lives Matters protests and with hopes for transformation in US politics after November’s presidential election, Reinhard Bütikofer and Ben Haddad join Susan and Greg to discuss what Europeans think of the United States now and how they see America’s future role in a changing world.
