U.S.: Friend or Foe?
January 29 @ 9 a.m. - 10:10 a.m. MST
The U.S. was a founder of the UN, NATO, WHO, and WTO but with recently changed international relations policies (ie. America First), we have pulled out from the Paris Climate Accord and Iran Nuclear Deal. This panel will explore the questions: Has the U.S. abandoned its traditional role as the leader of the free world? If so, have other countries filled the leadership void? And now post-election, how should the U.S. proceed? What changes are anticipated?
