Noon Program
Arlington Hall at Oak Lawn Park

How is the growing clash between American nationalism and globalism affecting U.S. foreign relations? James Lindsay, senior vice president and director of studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, reflects on the complex challenges facing President Donald Trump. Will the 45th president’s firebrand “America First” philosophy build cooperation or resentment? 

As a leading authority on American foreign policy, Lindsay looks at the tenuous issues that complicate the immediate and long-term relationships with our allies and enemies alike. His books include America Unbound: The Bush Revolution in Foreign Policy (with Ivo H. Daalder), Agenda for the Nation (with Henry J. Aaron; Peitro S. Nivola), and Congress and the Politics of U.S. Foreign Relations.

Don’t miss his provocative insights during American Influence: The Cost of American Nationalism—part of our International Perspectives Series.
