Sulaimani Forum: U.S. Policy in the Middle East

Since President Donald Trump's win in November, officials, journalists and analysts have been trying to decipher what his Presidency will mean for US Foreign Policy. From the travel ban, to 'taking Iraq's oil', to pushing back against Iran's influence in Iraq, the panel will discuss what a Trump Presidency means for Iraq and the greater Middle East.
