The current administration has fostered discord amongst Americans over foreign policy decisions that include stricter immigration laws, the implementation of new tariffs, and the adjustment of sanctions on international state actors. Has a gap opened up between the U.S. national security community and the general public over foreign policy? What happens when the advice and recommendations of the expert community clashes with political realities?

This panel is part of the larger effort by the U.S. Global Engagement program to examine drivers in U.S. politics pushing the United States to disengage from international affairs.
