Is there a Trump Foreign Policy Doctrine?

The rollercoaster presidency of Donald Trump has been met with both scorn and adoration. Robert Lieber will offer an assessment of how far Trump foreign policy represents continuity or revolution and whether there is a doctrinal basis to his world view. The lecture will differentiate between the President’s personal behaviour and the policies he pursues. Do these represent a coherent strategy or rather a series of ad hoc impulses? Above all, to what extent does the Trump era foreshadow a rupture with 70 years of American international leadership, or instead does it embody a uniquely unorthodox approach that nonetheless serves many – though not all – longstanding US and allied strategic priorities?
