Podcast: Trump’s U-turns

A special Middle East Weekly episode this week looks at Donald Trump’s u-turns of U.S. policy in the region.

Our team looks at U.S. missile strikes on Syria in response to suspected chemical weapon strikes by the Syria regime, and then Bahrain, where Washington has shown its willingness to ignore human rights abuses. Finally, we explore Trump’s talks with the leaders of Egypt and Jordan.

This week’s podcast is hosted by Sam Bollier, with analysis from Nadim Houssain, Blaire Byg, and Mohamad Saleh.
