We are only a matter of weeks into the Trump administration, yet change is already well under way. As per his campaign pledges, President Trump is setting about making America more isolationist by closing borders, banning immigrants from seven countries and pledging to build his famous Mexican wall. Yet he is also reaching out to the UK and other potential trading partners.

The Henry Jackson Society are pleased to invite you to an event with Kenneth R. Weinstein, President and CEO of the Hudson institute. Mr Weinstein will examine what President Trump’s early foreign policy measures suggest about the form his administration might take. Will the promised cordiality with Russia materialise? Will Great Britain manage to retain its place ‘at the front of the queue’ for trade deals? And will the Middle East peace process suffer as a result of the immigrant ban?

Kenneth R. Weinstein is the President and CEO of the Hudson Institute. He first joined the Institute in 1991, was appointed CEO in June 2005 and was named President in March 2011. Weinstein graduated from The University of Chicago (B.A. in General Studies in the Humanities), the Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris (D.E.A. in Soviet and Eastern European Studies), and Harvard University (Ph.D. in Government).Trained as a political theorist, his academic work focuses on the early Enlightenment. Weinstein has dedicated much of his time to writing on international affairs for prominent publications in the United States, Europe and Asia, including Le Figaro (France), Le Monde (France) Bungei Shunju (Japan) and the Wall Street Journal.
