What should we expect from President Trump at the NATO Summit?

What should we expect from President Trump at the NATO Summit?

Well, the hope is that he stays on script, thanks other European countries for contributing more to NATO. The worry is that he gets mad at Emmanuel Macron, that he gets involved in U.K. politics, and it all goes off the rails. We'll wait and see.

What impact will the new Brazilian and our Argentinean steel tariffs have on the U.S. economy?

Well, not that huge an impact, but they'll certainly make steel more expensive and manufacturers won't like that. The larger question is, is Trump really trying to wind down the trade wars or is he just going to ratchet them back up? Something that certainly worries markets.

What advantage does the White House get from not taking part in impeachment hearings this week?

Well, their whole argument is that the whole thing is illegitimate from the start and that by sending anybody, they would be legitimizing these hearings. So, they're trying to rise above the fray, and they'll wait for any Senate trial to mount a defense ahead of what they expect would be an acquittal.

Empathy and listening are key to establishing harmonious relationships, as demonstrated by Callista Azogu, GM of Human Resources & Organization for Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC), an Eni subsidiary in Abuja. "To build trust is very difficult. To destroy it is very easy," says Callista, whose busy days involve everything from personnel issues to union relationships. She sees great potential for her native Nigeria not only because of the country's natural resources, but because of its vibrant and creative people.

Listen: For the first time in twenty years extreme poverty around the world is growing. How does the developing world recover from a pandemic that has brought even the richest nations to their knees? David Malpass, the President of the World Bank, is tasked with answering that question. He joins Ian Bremmer on the podcast to talk about how his organization is trying to keep the developing world from slipping further into poverty in the wake of a once-in-a-century pandemic.

Does Cuba belong back on the US's State Sponsors of Terrorism list? The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board showed their support for Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's decision on this issue in a recent opinion piece, "Cuba's Support for Terror." But in this edition of The Red Pen, Ian Bremmer and Eurasia Group analysts Risa Grais-Targow, Jeffrey Wright and Regina Argenzio argue that the WSJ's op-ed goes too far.

We are now just a few days away from the official end of Donald Trump's presidency, but the impacts of his latest moves in office will obviously last far beyond Joe Biden's inauguration. There's the deep structural political polarization, the ongoing investigations into the violence we saw at the Capitol, lord knows what happens over the next few days, there's also last-minute policy decisions here and abroad. And that's where we're taking our Red Pen this week, specifically US relations with Cuba.
