The Art of Foreign Policy: US Global Standing & What's Next for the UK

Jun 28, 2017

Lake Effect's Mitch Teich talks with foreign policy contributor Art Cyr about a variety of issues on the international scene.

Cyr reflects on poll data that shows US standing in the world has dropped in the first six months of the Trump Administration in every country except two - Russia and Israel.  He also discusses President Trump's charge that former President Barack Obama and his administration could have done more before leaving office to counter alleged Russian meddling in U.S. electoral politics.

Additionally, Cyr shares some context and talks about what's next for the UK since the formation of a coalition government following an election that saw losses for Prime Minister Theresa May and her Conservative Party.  And Cyr discusses the significance of the victories for moderates in French elections.
