Biden faces foreign policy challenges, starting 20 years ago, from Iran and North Korea to the war in Russia, China and Afghanistan.
He was a sharp critic of former President Donald Trump’s foreign policy during the 2020 campaign and, if he won the election, promised a dramatic turnaround, including outreach to US allies and a resolve to face opposing parties like Russia.

Announcing some key members of his national security team in November, Biden said “America is back.” Willing to lead the world, not to back down from it. Once again, sit at the head of the table. Ready to face our allies, and not reject our allies, ready to stand up for our values. “
