Media Outlets Examine Trump, Biden Positions On Foreign Policy, COVID-19 Ahead Of U.S. Presidential Election

NPR: Trump And Biden On Global Issues: From Reproductive Rights To Refugees
“This election season — like many before it — has been dominated by domestic issues. But whether Americans elect Donald Trump or Joe Biden president will also have significant consequences for the rest of the world, especially those countries that count on U.S. foreign aid. And when it comes to aid and other global issues, Trump and Biden’s policies are starkly different. While former Vice President Biden has outlined some of his plans and priorities for the future, President Trump’s campaign has focused more on what he’s done in his first term. Still, Trump’s past words and actions should be a good indicator of how he intends to move forward if re-elected. Below is a summary of what Trump and Biden have said (or done) on these matters…” (Lu, 10/22).
