In 2024 we are once again faced with the prospect of either Joe Biden or Donald Trump back in the Oval Office. However, this time we have presidential track records to draw from as we prepare for the next administration. At this event, the United States Studies Centre launched its latest report Red Book | Blue Book 2024, a guide for decision-makers regarding the next US presidential administration.

Which policies will be most impacted by a change in leadership? What will a second Biden or Trump term mean for Australia? What should Australian decision-makers know and do under President Trump vs. President Biden?

The event comprised two panels featuring some of the authors of the report.

Panel 1: How will a second President Trump or President Biden term impact AUKUS, relations with China and alliances in Asia?

Panel 2: How will political dynamics in Congress and the White House affect trade policy and relationships with the White House?
