Foreign Policy

Foreign policy was front and center in the final presidential debate. While most American voters remain focused on domestic issues, what happens on the international stage can quickly become any administration's primary concern. Whether it's trade, the environment or national security, international relations have a profound impact on u.s. policy, affecting all of us. So we discussed U.S. foreign policy with our guests: Mohamed Daadaoui, Associate Professor of Political Science at Oklahoma City University. Louis Furmanski, Chair of the Political Science Department at the University of Central Oklahoma. Peter Gries, Director of the Institute for U.S.-China Issues at the University of Oklahoma. And Mike Boettcher, ABC news correspondent and Correspondent in Residence at the OU Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication.
