March 30, 2018

Episode Notes:

The retirement of National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and President Trump’s appointment of John Bolton to replace him has raised many questions about what this move means for a number of foreign policy and national security issues. Jason talks about the role of the National Security Adviser with Ivo Daalder, former U.S. ambassador to NATO, author of In the Shadow of the Oval Office: Profiles of the National Security Advisers and the Presidents They Served, and currently the President of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.
