John Negroponte, Stephen Mull

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.
