This talk will provide Strobe Talbott’s analysis of Trump's America, the role of the French-US relationship in the international world order and will cover a wide range of current US foreign policy matters. From China and North Korea to Russia and Israel, how have Trump and his advisors been coping? What have been the President's priorities and positions in the Middle East? What is his authority over war? What should Europe want from the US and how are bilateral relations with France?
