As 2019 opens, there is turmoil in President Trump’s foreign policy team, thanks in large part to the President’s abrupt announcement that the U.S. will pull out of Syria, and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis’s subsequent resignation.  

It’s a tumultuous time in other countries as well, and so we welcome foreign policy contributor Art Cyr to the studio to look ahead at what might dominate international headlines in the first half of the new year.  He spoke with us this month about Brexit, Syria, Afghanistan, Germany, the protests in France, and Asia.
