Valdai Club Conference Hall, Tsvetnoy Boulevard 16/1, Moscow, Russia
List of speakers

On February 29, the Valdai Club hosted an expert discussion dedicated to the upcoming presidential elections in the United States.

The US presidential election campaign is gaining momentum. According to public opinion polls, the most popular candidates, as in 2020, are Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden. Both candidates evoke controversial feelings among American voters. The latest reports about the deteriorating health of incumbent President Joe Biden have become resonant, and his potential opponent Donald Trump continues to be threatened with criminal prosecution by the US authorities.

Will the elections affect the US foreign policy? Will relations with China change? What will the relationship look like with NATO allies? Will the position on the Iran nuclear deal change? Finally, what will be the policy towards Russia? Participants in the discussion answered these and other questions.
