Trump’s foreign policy inheritance

Listen 00:49:17

Guests: Dominic Tierney, Ron Granieri

Any time the Presidency changes hands, the incoming Commander-in-Chief has a variety of situations around the world that await them. For President-elect Trump, there is the ongoing war in Syria, our tense alliances with Turkey and other Mid-East allies, combating terrorist organizations like ISIS, the refugee crises at home and in Europe, Iran’s nuclear capabilities, the conflict in the South China Sea, and so much more. Today, we’ll talk about these situations and why they are important in maintaining global order. We’re joined by DOMINIC TIERNEY, professor of political science at Swarthmore College, and by RON GRANIERI of the Foreign Policy Research Institute.
