    Defense priorities for the Trump administration

    When: Tuesday, February 21, 2017, 10:00 — 11:30 a.m.

    Where: The Brookings Institution, Falk Auditorium, 1775 Massachusetts Ave, NW, Washington, DC


    Throughout his campaign, President Trump argued for policies that could diminish the global role of the United States, while at the same time indicating that power through strength is a critical part of his defense strategy. Among other things, Trump has called for an increase in military personnel, a more aggressive campaign against ISIS, scaled-back funding to key programs like the F-35, and a focus on building up the Navy. And with the simmering conflicts in various parts of the world, the future of U.S. defense policy is uncertain.

    On February 21, the Center for 21st Century Security and Intelligence at Brookings will host a panel of experts for a discussion on defense recommendations for the Trump administration. Experts include Thomas Wright, fellow and director of the Brookings Project on International Order and Strategy; Robert Hale, former comptroller of the Department of Defense and now at Booz Allen Hamilton; and Lt. Gen. (retired) Mike Moeller of Pratt & Whitney. Michael O’Hanlon, senior fellow at Brookings, will moderate.

    Following the discussion, the panelists will take audience questions.
