The Jacksonian Tradition and American Foreign Policy under President Trump

On March 8, Walter Russell Mead, Hudson Institute/Bard College, spoke at the Amerika Haus.  The event was moderated by Konrad Kramar, Foreign Affairs Editor at Kurier. President Trump won the election on a wave of support from a loose cultural coalition of Americans who have been a major force in American politics since the victory of Andrew Jackson stunned the political elite in 1828. We are experiencing another Jacksonian moment in America.
