Najam Comments on Trump Inauguration and Protests

Adil Najam Trump Inauguration

The inauguration ceremonies of United States President Donald Trump and the protests that followed his inauguration brought a flurry of media requests for Adil Najam, Dean of the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University. These included appearances several television networks in Pakistan including Geo News TV, Dawn TV and Capital TV on January 20 and 21, 2017.

Apart from various appearances to comment on the inauguration and protests, Najam also appeared in two major news discussion shows on the implications of the inauguration on U.S.-Pakistan relations. Najam commented on the unique nature of this U.S. president and his inauguration, suggesting that much of what will follow remains in flux but is unlikely to improve U.S. relations with Pakistan or with the Muslim world.
