U.S.-Korea Relations in the Era of Trump
With the inauguration of Donald Trump and the prospect of an early presidential election in South Korea, there is a prospect for significant change in the alliance. How might the Trump administration reshape U.S. relations with South Korea? What new steps might the President make to address the nuclear threat from North Korea? And, how might the Trump administration’s approach to security in Northeast Asia impact relations with South Korea? How will the current political situation in South Korea affect the alliance? If there are early presidential elections, how might the next Korean administration approach the alliance?

Please join KEI and the Hanmi Club for a discussion of the future of relations between the United States and South Korea, how to address the challenge of North Korea, and what the Trump administration’s Asia policy might mean for the alliance.
