“The Trump Administration’s Trade Policies in Theory & Practice”

Peter Rashish, Senior Fellow & Director of the Geoeconomics Program, American Institute for Contemporary German Studies (AICGS)

Wednesday, February 28, 2018
08.30 am - 09.30 am


With the election of Donald Trump the American public chose a president who painted international trade not as a generator of U.S. prosperity and a multiplier of its national interest, but as a set of bargains sapping the U.S. of jobs, prosperity, and power. A lot has happened since then. Just three weeks ago at the World Economic Forum in Davos the president alluded to the possibility of the U.S. rejoining a revamped Trans-Pacific Partnership only one year after it left that very deal. So where does that leave the EU as one of the U.S.’s major trading partners? Peter Rashish will look at President Trump’s trade policy approach and sort theory from practice.

In addition to working for AICGS,  Peter Rashish serves as Senior Advisor for Trade and Transatlantic Relations at Transnational Strategy Group LLC, a Washington-based international business and government affairs consultancy. Before joining TSG, he served as Vice President for Europe and Eurasia at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, where he spearheaded the Chamber’s advocacy for an ambitious and comprehensive trade agreement between the United States and the European Union.
