On June 18th, Partnership for a Secure America held an off-the-record dinner for participants in the Congressional Partnership Program to discuss our nation’s future regarding foreign policy and national security. This was the last event in the Spring 2018 Congressional Partnership Program.
Participants in the program were able to talk openly about the state of bipartisanship within the current Congress and the feasibility of offices on opposite sides of the aisle working together. The staffers detailed the ways in which Congress’ relationship with the public affects its bipartisan work. Within the discussion’s broader framework, participants discussed issues such as defense spending and trade.
