      The uncertainty surrounding U.S. foreign policy under the Biden administration, following the unpredictable tenure of the Trump presidency, is causing Europe to reconsider its reliance on American security guarantees. During a discussion on Bloomberg Daybreak, it was noted that while Biden has been more supportive of NATO than Trump, the delay in Congress on reauthorizing aid to Ukraine added to the perception that the U.S. role in Europe may be changing. This shifting landscape necessitates that Europe prepare for potential new realities.
