National Security Challenges
Facing the Trump Administration:
Threats and Uncertainties
Former National Intelligence Officer
for Strategic Programs & Nuclear Proliferation
Donald Trump was sworn in as President on January 20, and will be facing a number of threats and challenges his national security team must immediately address. That includes cyber warfare, nuclear proliferation, terrorism, Russian aggression, Chinese island-building, Iranian (Shia) and Sunni state rivalries, non-state movements in the region (ISIS. Al-Nusra, etc.), and North Korean instability and nuclear weapons provocations.
Keith Hansen will lay out the primary challenges facing the Trump national security team, and will address possible actions and policies the new administration may take. In his 30-year government career, Hansen served as the NIO for Strategic Programs & Nuclear Proliferation, as the Special Assistant to the Director of Central Intelligence, and as a participant in several arms control negotiations, including SALT II, INF, and CTBT.
