Analyzing Donald Trump's Foreign Policy Agenda

Donald Trump's recent foreign policy speech--ridiculed by some, called "Jacksonian" by others. He even paraphrased John Quincy Adams.

We ask security expert, John Mearsheimer, to share his thoughts on Trump’s speech, and compare Trump’s foreign policy outlook to that of the Democratic frontrunner, Hillary Clinton. 

Mearsheimer is professor of political science at the University of Chicago and author of numerous books on foreign policy and security including, The Tragedy of Great Power Politics and Why Leaders Lie: The Truth about Lying in International Politics.
