Fairhaven College’s World Issues Forum
Wed 5/9 from 12:00 PM to 1:20 PM
Mel Goodman will discuss the first 16 months of the Trump presidency in terms of his personnel appointments; his policies; and his process of governance. Both domestic and foreign policies will be examined, but the emphasis will be on national and international security. This has been an unusual and unprecedented presidency and, since we are in uncharted waters for the most part, there will be ample opportunity for discussion and analysis.
The event will be held in the Fairhaven Auditorium, located on the third floor of the Fairhaven College building, 516 High Street Bellingham, WA 98225.
Open to the public.
