Hotel Crescent Court

There are presidents applauded for their international skills. There are presidents who are not celebrated. President Donald Trump receives a poor diplomatic grade from James M. Lindsay, the author, with Ivo H. Daalder, of The Empty Throne: America’s Abdication of Global Leadership. They argue that President Trump’s strategy is destroying carefully constructed post-World War II international diplomacy.

At the Council on Foreign Relations, Lindsay is senior vice president, director of studies, and holds the Maurice R. Greenberg Chair. His education leadership experience includes serving as first director of the Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law at the University of Texas. He also taught international affairs at UT’s Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs.
