The Trump Administration says it is “committed to a foreign policy focused on American interests and American national security” and that “the world will be more peaceful and more prosperous with a stronger and more respected America.” Others have called Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris agreement, waffling commitment to NATO, and abandonment of the TPP dangerous acts of isolationism that will create a vacuum of American leadership, and openings for others to reorder the world. Meanwhile, complex national security challenges continue to build, alongside a mountain of questions, as the Trump White House reiterates its strategy of keeping an element of surprise. So what will the Trump Doctrine be? How will this administration wield American power? Will it all amount to America first? Or America alone?

Panelists include Julia Ioffe, David Petraeus, David Rothkopf, and Peter Feaver
