Video: Blinken Highlights Domestic Impacts of U.S. Foreign Policy

I know that foreign policy can sometimes seem disconnected from our daily life. These are either major threats such as pandemics, terrorism, or it is disappearing from view. As a result, for some time now Americans have been asking difficult, but fair questions about what we do, how we are running, in fact, whether we should be leading. With that in mind, we set the foreign policy priorities of the Biden administration by asking a few simple questions. What will our foreign policy mean for American workers and their families? What do we need to do in the world to make us stronger here at home? And what should we do at home to make ourselves stronger in the world? American leadership and commitment matter. We hear this now from our friends, they are happy that we are back. Whether we like it or not, the world is not getting organized. When the United States pulls out, one of two things is likely to happen: either another country tries to take our place, but not in a way that advances our interests and values, or perhaps just as bad, no one takes over, and then we get chaos and all the dangers it creates. Either way, it’s not good for America. Another enduring principle is that we need countries to cooperate more than ever. Not a single global challenge that affects your lives can be met by a single nation acting alone, not even a nation as powerful as the United States. And there is no wall high enough or strong enough to hold back the changes that are transforming our world.
