“Any chance of a prestigious international role might be stymied were former US President Donald Trump or a like-minded candidate to seize the White House next year, said Zach Meyers, a competition policy fellow at the Centre for European Reform. “There’s a lot of bad blood between Vestager and Trump, so she may be unable to secure American support if the Republicans win.”


Meyers predicted Vestager’s immediate future would likely involve a stop-gap job in the private sector, giving her “a place to regroup and ride out the current wave of state interventionism and protectionism.”
