Email a Friend
Europe has welcomed a distinguished delegation of American leaders: Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of Defense General James Mattis and Senator John McCain. In meetings with other world leaders in Munich and Brussels, these leaders were focused on smoothing international ruffled feathers and calming nerves over Donald Trump's new "America First" doctrine. Republican Senator McCain has already broken rank, telling an audience in Germany that the administration of President Trump is in "disarray." Guests included in 1A's discussion of Europe are GĂ©rard Araud, French Ambassador to the United States, Kurt Volker, executive director at The McCain Institute, Julianne Smith, senior fellow and director of the Strategy and Statecraft Program at the Center for a New American Security and Tom Nuttall, Brussels correspondent and Charlemagne columnist for The Economist.
