UM Frankel Center Event: Wieseneck Symposium: US-Israel Relations in the Age of Trump
January 30 @ 4:00 PM - 6:00 PMCost: Free
Few foreign leaders have expressed as much admiration for President Trump as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: “I have never heard a bolder or more courageous speech,” Netanyahu gushed after President Trump addressed the United Nations General Assembly. The U.S. President, for his part, has aligned U.S. foreign policy with Netanyahu’s wish list, including opposition to the Iran deal and support for moving the American embassy to Jerusalem. This symposium brings three prominent scholars and commentators into discussion about how U.S.-Israel relations have changed since the inauguration of Donald Trump, what the future of these relations may be, and how different groups may be impacted.
