Bella Brown October 5, 2023 Listen on Spotify Apple Music This is a badge for Google Podcasts on Google Play, created with a sketch. Acast The current turmoil in the U.S. House of Representatives is having a widespread impact beyond the nation’s capital, particularly in Ukraine. The assurance of continued support from the U.S. for their war efforts is now uncertain after the exclusion of future funding in the recent temporary funding agreement. Is it possible for Ukraine and its European allies to proceed without the support of Congress for additional aid? And is the United States’ foreign policy moving away from promoting liberal democracy? On this week’s edition of Power Play, Anne McElvoy speaks with Michael Froman, who is the head of the influential Council on Foreign Relations based in New York. The Council’s advice is highly regarded by the White House, State Department, and European cities, making it a key indicator of America’s global strategy. The article examines the approach of the U.S. foreign policy establishment towards the conflict in Ukraine, the emergence of protectionist policies, the state of liberal democracy, China, and the possibility of another Trump presidency. Is America’s role as the global enforcer coming to an end? Anne is joined by POLITICO’s “Power Panel” to reflect on the choices facing the Biden administration and the impact in European capitals. This week’s panel are Heidi Vogt, POLITICO’s national security editor in Washington and Nicholas Vinocur, editor-at-large for POLITICO Europe in Brussels.
