Video Interview: Crisis in Korea and the next Secretary of the Army

Editor's Note: In our latest Facebook Live interview (please like our Facebook page to see more of these events) Harry Kazianis, Director of Defense studies at the Center for the National Interest, sat down with Lt. Col. Daniel L. Davis (Ret.), a senior fellow at Defense Priorities, to discuss the ongoing crisis in Korea and the future of the U.S. Army.

Daniel Davis recently wrote an article on the lessons Donald Trump could gleam from Dwight D. Eisenhower, especially in how Eisenhower was tough on China and North Korea. An excerpt of the article can be found below:

Former president Dwight D. “Ike” Eisenhower was the supreme commander of Allied forces during World War II and he intimately knew the brutal, devastating nature of all-out war. Ike was a believer in maintaining overpowering military strength—including a stated willingness to use nuclear weapons—but more importantly, he was a strong advocate for peace and diplomacy. Before it is too late, let us hope President Trump can learn from the policies of Eisenhower.
