The U.S. will stay active on the arms control front

While arms control is unlikely to play an important role in the lead-up to the 2020 elections, the issue could resurface shortly after. The current administration is dissatisfied with the New START Treaty, from which the U.S. is likely to withdraw if President Trump is reelected. There has also been high-level criticism of the Treaty on Open Skies. Washington may seek new agreements involving China instead.
