While no one could have imagined the unpredictable nature of Election 2016, it was certain from the start that foreign policy would be a factor given today's global challenges. Voters rated foreign policy as a top issue, but it will take time to analyze how deep some of the anxiety and anti-global sentiment is – both on the left and the right.
What is clear is that following the election, there will continue to be bipartisan support for American global leadership – not only among returning lawmakers, but also with the freshmen Senators and House Members. During the campaign, there were many questions about the unorthodox policies of President-elect Donald Trump’s foreign policy and now with Republicans controlling the White House, Senate, and House, it is unclear what will happen come January on a range of foreign policy issues.
After meeting with nearly every incoming freshmen member of Congress and numerous meetings with President-elect Trump’s campaign and Transition Team, we look forward to working with the new Administration and Congress to build on the bipartisan support for American global leadership through development and diplomacy.
Check out our top election takeaways, profiles of the new faces in Congress, and what to expect next year.
