Today, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden was inaugurated into office as the 46th President of the United States. Throughout his campaign, Biden promised to conduct a drastically different foreign policy than his predecessor. We look at what this change could look like in Latin America on issues such as global action for climate change, countering a rising China, and human rights. Joining us today on the podcast to discuss the Biden presidency and Latin America is Brian Winter.
