As the West’s victory over the communist Soviet Union demonstrated, ideas are immensely important, and that is as true today as it was then. Unfortunately, the Trump State Department has yet to make much progress in filling the jobs that will help expound Trump’s foreign policy vision.
From the position of undersecretary for public diplomacy to the director of the global engagement center at State, to the CEO of the Broadcasting Board of Governors, key jobs remain filled by acting directors who have no presidential mandate to set the course. ...
Trump needs to engage all Europeans in order to counteract the destructive forces at work on their continent. Those forces are only fueled by Russian propaganda and disinformation aimed at tearing Europe apart, and sowing confusion and division within the United States.
