Scenarios for U.S. trade policy in the Biden administration
When it comes to trade policy, the Biden administration's biggest departure from its predecessor's stance will be an emphasis on climate change issues.

Tariffs are likely to remain in place, however, and little enthusiasm in Congress for trade agreements means President Biden is unlikely to push any through.
