ben zviProfessor Avi Ben-Zvi,  the Head of the International School’s Diplomacy Studies and Dual Degree in International Relations masters’ programs, recently was interviewed in an Israeli national journal “Reshet Bet” to provide comments on the US presidential race.

Professor Abraham Ben-Zvi, a leading expert on American foreign policy and political culture, stated in a recent interview, on Israeli broadcasting authority, that the Republican candidate Donald Trump has been marketing himself as a complete antithesis to President Obama. Professor Ben-Zvi claimed that, whereas Obama largely relied on soft power and projected an image of weakness and disengagement from international crises and regional wars, Trump has been portraying himself as a leader who would restore American prestige, credibility and deterring power.
