Abstract: Germany has voted. And the outcome of this election is crucial not only for Europe but also for the United States. What are the likely scenarios for the new government in Berlin? Will the new government in Berlin choose a different approach toward the Trump administration – and toward Putin’s Russia? From a U.S. perspective, who are the ones in the new German government to watch? As it continues to play a leading role in Europe, will Germany fulfill its obligations for the advancement of the European Union in terms of defense policy and in dealing with the refugee crisis?
