Will President-elect Joe Biden change US foreign policy?

Joe Biden has said he wants to reverse much of Donald Trump’s controversial foreign policy.

After days of uncertainty and a hard-fought, bitter campaign, Joe Biden has been declared the winner of the US presidential election.

He says he wants to restore the soul of the United States and unite a deeply divided nation.

Biden received more votes than any other presidential candidate in history.

But he has appealed to the tens of millions of Americans who did not vote for him to give him a chance.

After his victory in Pennsylvania, Biden is projected to have a majority of the Electoral College votes needed to win the White House.

But as he calls for unity, can Biden undo some of Donald Trump’s controversial policies at home and abroad?
