May 30 2017 - Christian Democratic Union of Germany

Merkel saying Europe cannot rely on others & needs to take matters into its own hands is a watershed-& what US has sought to avoid since WW2.feedback

May 23 2017 - Iran

I think we've got be careful about in some ways thinking too much of our Sunni partners and not taking Iran seriously enough. In particular, I would be very wary of getting involved in Yemen, which has all the fixings of a Middle Eastern Vietnam.feedback

May 20 2017 - Trump Presidency

For Americans, it will be a chance to see him in a different setting. Quite honestly, people will be looking to see how he does. There will just be flat-out curiosity about how well he does handling that dimension of the job.feedback

May 11 2017 - Russia

There's been a sanguine or somewhat benign view of Russia in the world – a kind of discounting of the use of cyber as a tool. And you've got to ask why that is?feedback

Mar 11 2017

Rex Tillerson is off to a slow start, but the White House is partly to blame.

Mar 08 2017

The pushy president needs to understand the art of relationships.feedback

Feb 02 2017 - Climate change

Whether you're looking at terrorists or hackers or disease or climate change, everything gets on the conveyor belt of globalization. That's the problem, in some ways, ... with 'America First.' We need an approach to the world that essentially pushes back against the fact that all over, in every other country, things are happening that could hurt us.feedback

Feb 02 2017 - Refugees

Nothing is local anymore. You have a mess in Syria, and then suddenly you have a million refugees go into Germany, which totally now has overturned European politics. The nationalist movements, the populist movements, the Brexit vote [were] largely a reaction.feedback

Feb 02 2017 - Obamacare

What you don't do can be every bit as consequential as what you do. It would be the Obamacare equivalent. I worry that we're going to do too much repealing and not enough replacing in the world. The world doesn't sort itself out. There's no invisible hand in the geopolitical marketplace. It doesn't just work. It takes the visible hand of the United States.feedback

Feb 02 2017 - Japan

I think his arguments about Japan, about China and so forth are largely wrong. He obviously doesn't agree. That said, I'm not going to say everything about trade is perfect. We do need trade agreements that deal with subsidies by governments. We do need trade agreements that make it impossible to do currency manipulation.feedback

Feb 02 2017 - US, Russia relations

I'd be less of a disruptor than Donald Trump. I'd be a little bit more of a preserver. I wouldn't be rattling the U.S.-China relationship. Instead I'd be enlisting China to help us with North Korea. I'd be pushing back against Russia so they're not tempted to do [things] elsewhere in Europe.feedback

Nov 09 2016 - Trans Pacific Partnership

On the trade front, more broadly, I think TPP doesn't go anywhere anytime soon.feedback

Nov 09 2016

What I would begin with is calling your allies. I'd call the British, the French, the Germans, the Japanese, the Koreans, the Israelis, because that's the basis.feedback

Jun 26 2016

Other countries in the E.U. may want to have their own referenda, and the E.U. is wildly unpopular. I think it creates all sorts of questions about this thing called the 'European project.feedback

Jun 26 2016

The idea was to knit together in particular Germany and France so closely that Europe could never again become a venue of war. I think what it will do is set in motion splits within the U.K. itself. Instead of being the United Kingdom, I think we'll going to see the beginning of the end of the country.feedback

Jun 26 2016

It will be a messy divorce between the United Kingdom and the E.U.feedback

Jun 26 2016 - Scottish independence

I think Scotland will have another referendum, it will probably choose to go its own way.feedback
