Event description

Description

Come learn the future of defense and foreign policy. A complimentary, free breakfast will be included (breakfast value does not exceed $20 per person.)

Overview

Checks and Balances: The Constitution gives the president wide authority in foreign policy; but lawmakers from this particular president's own party -- Republicans from the House and the Senate -- are pushing back. They're trying to curb Mr. Trump's power with a series of resolutions and bill provisions that seek to limit presidential authority, and increase congressional authority over foreign and defense policy. Experts John Donnelly and Rachel Oswald lead the conversation.
