n the first two years of his administration, President Donald Trump has already redefined the American approach to Israel and the Middle East: fulfilling his promise to move the American embassy to Jerusalem, working to dismantle the Iran nuclear deal, confronting anti-Israel sentiment at the UN, and promising to put forward a new approach to the Israel–Palestinian conflict. What is the larger strategy behind the Trump policy? Is it succeeding? And how does Trump’s Israel strategy fit within the history of the America–Israel relationship from Truman to Nixon to Carter to Bush? Michael Doran will provide the answers in this final lecture in his ten-part series on the American presidents and Israel.
