Haass: Trump’s Davos Speech Won’t Have Significant Staying Power

‘I’m struck by how narrow it was’
By Grabien Staff


HAASS: "I’m struck by how narrow this was in terms of talking about a larger American role in the world. And also how short-term it was. There was no reference to what is probably going to be the biggest economic challenge, the disappearance of millions of jobs because of new technologies. Booming stock markets and deregulation is not going to solve that problem for Americans, for any of the countries represented in that hall. So my sense is this was an immediate speech. This is not going to be a speech, I would argue, with significant staying power."
