Democracy was on the ballot in 2020. So were the environment and collective security. A majority of Americans rejected authoritarianism and isolationism in the last presidential election. With war raging in Ukraine, another war threatening in Asia, and the whole planet heating, Americans will soon vote again. Can the world still trust American leadership?

David Frum holds a BA and MA in history from Yale and a law degree from Harvard, where he served as President of the Federalist Society. He is a staff writer at The Atlantic and has been active in Republican politics since the first campaign of Ronald Reagan in 1980. From 2014 through 2017, Frum served as chairman of the board of trustees of the leading UK center-right think tank, Policy Exchange. In 2001-2002, he served as speechwriter and special assistant to President George W. Bush. Frum is the author of ten books, most recently Trumpocalypse: Restoring American Democracy (HarperCollins, 2020). For more information please visit the homepage of the author.
