Trump and the Middle East 2018

Last April, our distinguished panel discussed how the Trump presidency might affect the Middle East. Since then, some critics have said that Trump has gutted our diplomatic corps, supported tyrants and is destabilizing the region. Others have said that Trump is more realistic about the region than his predecessors, is defeating ISIS and making America safer. One year later, our panel of Middle East experts will continue the conversation.
