Trump, America First, and the future of America in the world

John Negroponte, Stephen Mull

Tuesday, December 04, 2018
12:00PM - 1:15PM (EST)
Event Details

Join us for a discussion with Ambassador John Negroponte about the future of America’s role in the world. How has President Trump’s foreign policy changed the perception of America across the globe? How does a policy of “America First” diverge from the post–World War I global order? This is the final event of our 2018 Historical Presidency lecture series, which has traced the evolution of American-led internationalism on the global stage since the end of WWI.

If you join our Presidential Cabinet, you are guaranteed special reserved seating with preferred views inside the Forum Room where our events take place.
