President Donald Trump is in Great Britain this week in advance of commemorations for the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion of World War II. While the President is no stranger to political controversy in the U.K., his visit comes at a time of significant political turmoil.

However, these are not entirely unprecedented times in which we live. Art Cyr, Lake Effect's foreign policy contributor, joins Mitch Teich to share a historical perspective.

Cyr discusses President Trump's visit and also examines the state of politics in the U.K. as Prime Minister Theresa May's time in office comes to a rapid conclusion:

Arthur I. Cyr is Director of the Clausen Center for World Business and Clausen Distinguished Professor at Carthage College in Kenosha. Previously he was President of the Chicago World Trade Center, the Vice President of the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations, a faculty member and executive at UCLA, and an executive at the Ford Foundation. His publications include the book After the Cold War - American Foreign Policy, Europe and Asia (Macmillan and NYU Press).
