Economic environment

Republican candidates are seeking to halt Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy in New Hampshire after the former president’s record victory in Iowa. On Monday, Donald Trump secured more than half of the votes in the Republican nomination contest in Iowa, propelling him towards what appears to be a closely contested election against the current president, Joe Biden. Both rivals have dramatically different policies on a variety of key issues, ranging from relations with NATO allies abroad to economic and fiscal policies, abortion rights, and immigration.
