Trade in the era of 'America First'
Former U.S. trade representative Michael Froman discusses trade trends and opportunities for President Trump
President Donald Trump won the 2016 election pledging to put "America First" when it comes to global trade. But what has that promise looked like in practice? The Miller Center's James R. Schlesinger Distinguished Professor, Michael Froman, a former US trade representative, discusses that question as well as the role of trade, its opportunities and pitfalls, and the attitudes Americans hold on trade and globalism in a conversation with the Center's Tom van der Voort.
The discussion is 23 minutes long and concludes with Froman's assessment of President Trump's first year on the world stage and what he ought to do next.
