Memo to Trump: Can’t We Learn from the Roman Model?

While the world is focused on the upcoming meeting between President Trump and dictator, Kim Jung Un, attention on what Iran, North Korea’s closest ally, is doing is absent from the front-page news coverage.

The Dangers Facing Trump and Those He Will Govern

On inauguration day, due to his predecessor’s many foreign policy failures, Donald Trump will inherit a much more dangerous world than the one Barack Obama inherited eight years previously.
