The Future of Foreign Policy with a Democratic President & Republican Senate
President Obama and his Chinese counterpart this week announced agreement on a plan to curb carbon emissions.
The President is in Asia to meet with leaders to discuss a variety of key issues.
But the climate agreement faces an uncertain future, owing to the opposition of Congressional Republicans. The GOP now controls both the House and Senate, which will impact the President’s ability to accomplish the foreign policy aims of the last two years of his administration.
