About the Speech:

The next U.S. President will confront a deeply unsettled world, from turmoil in the Middle East to Europe’s struggle to contain an outbreak of terror attacks. As many commentators have noted, Donald Trump’s protectionist, “America-first” approach to international trade and his desire for a major reassessment of America’s role in the world would lead to a dramatic shift in U.S. foreign policy, if he were to succeed President Obama.  In his address to members, Professor Trubowitz outlined his views on what Donald Trump’s approach to foreign policy may look like as well as the possible repercussions such policy may have on the global stage.
