America's Shifting Foreign Policy
Over the past few years, the United States has started to withdraw its aid and influence from regions like the Middle East, and that is creating space for other countries to assume more powerful positions.
On Tuesday's Up to Date, we’ll talk with Vali Nasr, author of The Dispensable Nation, about how recent foreign policy decisions led us to this point and what it could mean for American power in these areas in the future.
