Even if Biden wins the election, Europeans should consider the long-term changes underway in America, and not make the mistake of seeing the Trump era as a unique aberration. More than 40 per cent of American voters are likely to support him in this election. If Biden cannot get to grips with the pandemic or restore the economy to health, the Republicans, now tinged with Trumpian isolationism, could return to power in four years (or control Congress in two years). The last four years should have been a wake-up call for Europe. A Biden victory should not be taken as an excuse to hit the snooze button. Instead, Europeans should use the next four years to ensure that they are better prepared to protect their interests, regardless of who is in the White House.
