U.S. President Joe Biden is in Mexico this week, at a time when the administration is facing a host of issues around Latin America. In this special episode, Brian Winter and the White House’s Juan Gonzalez discuss a number of them: disputes with the Mexican government over energy policy; changes in the Venezuelan opposition; new developments in the relationship with Cuba; expectations for Brazil’s incoming government and what, if anything, defines Biden’s approach to Latin America today.
Juan S. Gonzalez is senior director for the Western Hemisphere at the National Security Council.
Brian Winter is the editor-in-chief of Americas Quarterly.
