We are now halfway through Donald Trump’s first term as president of the United States. With a polarised US public and a fraying international order, the president faces his first electoral report card since 2016 in the mid-term elections. The results will influence the trajectory of US politics and foreign policy for the next two, and possibly six, years.
Join Lowy Institute Executive Director Dr Michael Fullilove for an address on the Trump administration, the effect of the midterms on US foreign policy and what this means for Australia and the world order. The event will be chaired by Lowy Institute’s Research Director Alex Oliver.
