Trump Doubles Down on Ineffective Sanctions

by | May 29, 2020

On FPF #498. I discuss Trump’s foreign policy strategy of using sanctions to deal with any international issue. Trump has sanctioned several countries, including Russia, China, Iraq, Lebanon, Zimbabwe, and Myanmar. For others – North Korea, Venezuela, and Iran – he has not limited the sanctions to individuals or industries, but rather imposes an economic war on the entire population of the country. Trump’s sanctions have actually harmed the president’s foreign policy, as the sanctions interfere with his ability to engage the countries diplomatically.
