Much of President Donald Trump’s populist support comes from people who are deeply worried about globalization and immigration. But Trump’s pro-border wall, anti-NAFTA stance has strained US-Mexico relations. Can the two nations find common ground and work past the rhetoric? 

Join us for a lively town hall discussion linking experts and audiences in Washington, DC, and Mexico City.

This live event is hosted by Joshua Johnson of the public radio program 1A. It was recorded on May 11, 2017.
