U.S. 2020: Election Guide

SHARE:

 

The 2016 U.S. election results upended the global order. From restrictive immigration policies to withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership to the precedent set by deserting the Paris climate agreement, the Trump administration has redrawn relations within the Americas.

The 2020 elections could bring another dramatic turn.

With that in mind, AS/COA Online is tracking how Latin America fits in to the race for the presidency. We’ll be examining where the contenders stand on issues affecting the region, the role of the Latino vote, how events in the Americas could shape the race, and more.

We invite you to bookmark as-coa.org/us2020 and revisit for new updates.
