Keynote Conversation with General David Petraeus and Max Boot
General Petraeus and Max Boot take a broad look into the foreign policy of the Trump administration, the global challenges facing the U.S., and lessons learned from General Petraeus' extensive time spent in the Middle East.
Debate #1 - Trump Is Making China Great Again
President Trump is shaking up the foreign policy playbook, pulling out of global deals and agreements, and casting doubt on America's commitments to its allies. Is this creating a vacuum for a growing China to fill?
Debate #2 - The U.S. Should Play Hardball With China On Trade
Should the U.S. meet China’s economic aggression with tough policies of its own? Or is playing hardball on trade a risky business that may put the American economy – and influence around the world – in harm’s way?
Debate #3 - The U.S. and China Can Forge a Grand Bargain to Contain North Korea
Could U.S. and Chinese leaders garner the political and diplomatic muster necessary to contain North Korea?
Debate #4 - China Is Destined For Regional Dominance
Should the U.S. shore up its Asian alliances in defiance of an increasingly powerful Beijing? Or is it time to give China its due as the regional hegemon?
Is President Trump using Nixon's "madman" theory toward North Korea?
General David Petraeus evaluates President Trump's consistency at home and abroad, and the message that sends.
