Facebook Live: The President-elect and U.S. Trade Policy

November 15, 2016

Blog posts represent the views of CFR fellows and staff and not those of CFR, which takes no institutional positions.

I sat down yesterday with my colleague Edward “Ted” Alden to discuss what Donald Trump’s election means for U.S. trade policy. We discussed how President-elect Trump might reorient U.S. trade policy, the likely demise of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement, how America’s trade partners might respond to a more muscular U.S. trade policy, and the economic benefits of retraining and apprenticeship programs, among other topics.

You can check out the video of our discussion below or on Facebook. (And if you haven’t checked out Ted’s new book, Failure to Adjust: How Americans Got Left Behind in the Global Economy, you should.)
