Trump and the Middle East 2019

This is the third annual panel about how the Trump presidency is affecting the Middle East. Some experts continue to believe that Trump is destabilizing the region with his impulsive decisions and dangerous rhetoric and actions, while others believe that he is making America safer. Our distinguished panel will continue the conversation.
