Good evening, listeners, and Happy Thanksgiving! We have another excellent episode for you this week, as our host Richard Aldous discusses what we can expect from a Trump Administration with Josef Joffe and Michael Mandelbaum.First, Josef Joffe, a member of the TAI executive committee and professor of U.S. foreign policy at Stanford University, returns to the program to discuss the dangers of “economic and strategic isolationism” that seem the natural outcome of Donald Trump’s campaign rhetoric.Then, Michael Mandelbaum, the Christian A. Herter Professor Emeritus of American Foreign Policy at The Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and author of Mission Failure: America and the World in the Post-Cold War Era, looks at how President Trump could remake America’s role on the international stage in the post-World War II era.Be sure to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, where you can leave a review.
