President Trump has taken a high profile in foreign policy, notably with significant decisions on Iran, Israel, China and North Korea. But who is advising him and what underlies his sometimes erratic public statements? Republican foreign policy experts are split on their views of what a conservative foreign policy actually looks like, and there appears to be a struggle inside and outside the White House to get the President’s ear. Join us June 26th for a panel discussion with experts from across the conservative spectrum who will discuss their vision of US foreign policy under a Republican president who's charting his own course of conservatism.
