On this week’s episode of World Review from the New Statesman, Jeremy Cliffe in Berlin, Emily Tamkin in Washington, DC and Ido Vock in Paris look ahead at the stories that might dominate 2021 – from protests in Belarus to friction in Asia via elections in Latin America – and the global impact they could have. They also take stock of the events of the last week, including the scenes as Donald Trump’s supporters stormed the Capitol.
As she argues in the podcast, Emily writes that the chaos in Washington was the logical end to Donald Trump’s presidency. Read that piece here. Many are now calling for Trump’s removal from office using the 25th Amendment – but just how likely is that to happen? Ido has the answers here.
