Event Details

Co-Organized by AmCham China, CCG, and Yale Center Beijing.

The Event

The Trump administration’s unconventional approach to international affairs has disrupted traditional diplomacy and posed uncertainties around the world. Much of Trump’s foreign policy is driven by domestic demand. With an increasingly divided America, is Trump’s policy reflective of the United States’ national interest? By 2020, how will the world be different? Jake Sullivan, former policy director of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign and one of the most well respected young leaders in US’s foreign policy community, will share his view on current world affairs and what the United States’ role may be over the next few years.
