Officials in Brussels observe that US presidents often become more focused on foreign policy issues during their second term and note that even a re-elected Trump may need to treat European allies better in order to deal more effectively with China.
Be he Biden or Trump, the next US president is likely to seek a more collaborative approach, particularly in the technology sphere, said Aaron Cooper, Vice President of global policy at lobbying group the Software Alliance.
"All governments are in the process of working out the best ways to address these concerns, which really require global practices," Cooper said. "So even in a second Trump administration, we may see a different approach to commercial security on digital issues, which will become more nuanced as the issues mature."
