Our Deputy Director Christian Kvorning Lassen and Research Fellow and resident American, Danielle Piatkiewicz, discussed the differences between the two with regards to key foreign policy and domestic issues, while also having a free-wheeling more philosophical discussion about the state of the US and what the future might hold.
