Te United States, Europe and Canada must work together toward one ambition in 2021—to renew, revitalize and retool for the decade ahead the most powerful democratic community in modern history.

Afer years of mistrust, recrimination and division, the bridge across the Atlantic should be “built back better” and we must do that together.
But it would be a dangerous mistake to think that the result of the American election alone will repair the breach.

Te transatlantic relationship must be rebuilt and reimagined. Our institutions must be strengthened. As the U.S. embraces its allies again, Europe too must rethink its approach to some fundamental issues.
