    Episode 5: The upcoming U.S. presidential election and fraying U.S.-German relations Common Ground


What many people feel about the upcoming U.S. presidential election can be described in one word: Fear. 
Some worry there won’t be a peaceful transition of power following the vote next month. Others wonder whether democracy and women’s rights in the United States will radically change with a new Supreme Court. There is also anxiety over U.S. foreign policy, and the tone of the recent presidential debate only added to global uncertainty.
Host Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson is joined by John Emerson, former U.S. Ambassador to Germany; Kathryn Watts, Pendleton Miller Chair in Law at the University of Washington School of Law in Seattle; Peter Beyer, Germany’s Transatlantic Coordinator; and Ralph Freund, Vice President of U.S. Republicans Abroad in Germany.
This show was produced by Dina Elsayed.
