Trump’s Mideast Policy: Disengagement or Escalation?

  • 2168 Rayburn House Office Building (map)

President Trump's approach toward the Middle East has relied heavily on Saudi Arabia to increase pressure on Iran, which his administration views as the key source of regional instability. However, the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi under the apparent orders of the Saudi crown prince has raised severe doubt about the authoritarian kingdom, while President Trump's announced troop withdrawal from northeast Syria has roiled his national security cabinet.

Is the Trump administration's approach toward the region sustainable? How has the administration's pressure campaign played inside Iran? And, how can the 116th Congress exert effective oversight over the administration's chaotic approach to the region?

Join us on Friday, January 25, 2019 from 12:00 to 1:00 PM in the Gold Room of the Rayburn Building (Room 2168) for an expert discussion on the Trump administration's shifting Middle East strategy.
