The Trump Revolution in
American Foreign Policy and the Pacific Rim
Since taking office in 2017, President Donald Trump has pulled out of the Trans Pacific Partnership, triggered a trade war with China, launched a new Indo-Pacific strategy and held an unprecedented meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Daniel Drezner will discuss the Trump revolution in foreign policy, how that applies to East Asia, and whether it will endure any length of time.
Daniel W. Drezner is Professor of International Politics, a nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, and a contributing editor at the Washington Post. Prior to joining The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, he taught at the University of Chicago and the University of Colorado at Boulder. He has previously held positions with Civic Education Project, the RAND Corporation and the U.S. Department of the Treasury, and received fellowships from the German Marshall Fund of the United States, Council on Foreign Relations, and Harvard University. Drezner’s most recent book is The Ideas Industry: How Pessimists, Partisans, and Plutocrats are Transforming the Marketplace of Ideas.
