IEA Conversations

Trump, trade & twenty-twenty

June 6, 2019

This week the UK rolled out the red carpet for Donald Trump's first state visit. The controversial President holds over a 75% disapproval rating among the UK public. But putting the politics aside, what should we make of the policies behind the visit?

What is the status of the Special Relationship? Can a free trade deal between the US and the UK really be secured? Would the NHS actually be on the table? And what about the economic debates taking place back in the States in the run-up to the 2020 election?

Joining IEA Associate Director Kate Andrews on the podcast today are Tim Stanley, historian and leader writer for the Daily Telegraph, and Freddy Gray, deputy editor of The Spectator, and editor of Spectator USA.
