War on the Rocks interview Policy Exchange’s John Bew about the “special relationship”

Feb 17, 2017

War on the Rocks’ Ryan Evans interviews John Bew — Head of Policy Exchange’s Britain in the World project — about the state of the “special relationship” between the United States and the United Kingdom as the presidency of Donald Trump unfolds.

How is Prime Minister Theresa May trying to manage British relations with the United States? Is Parliament making it easier or harder for her? What does Brexit mean for British power? Will Britain start to more seriously commit to a higher defence budget? Is the Winston Churchill bust in the White House a useful symbol of the special relationship? John tackles these questions and more, ending on a note of optimism on this most resilient of alliances.
