About the Lecture
America’s political class is increasingly mobilized against much of President Donald Trump’s foreign policy, and how Trump’s administration makes policy. Has Trump reversed American approach towards the liberal international order? What has he done? What are his achievements and failures? Why does the Washington establishment attack him so? Revolving around these issues, this lecture will probe into U.S. foreign policy under the Trump Administration and Trump’s struggle with the Washington Establishment. The lecture will also reveal how Trump came under attacks following the incidents of violence in Charlottesville, and relate it to the Deep State and identify politics in the United States today.
All interesting parties are welcome!
