“The Trump Impact Abroad” (Focus on Viet Nam)


trump-impact-abroadHere’s an excerpt from my most recent University World News article:

I spent part of a recent Sunday morning speaking to group of Vietnamese students in Hanoi who had participated in a US culture and society contest. Several were from talented and gifted high schools, including some of the finest in Viet Nam. Most had plans to study overseas, primarily in the US, but also other countries such as Australia and Canada.

At the end, I asked if they had any questions for me. One that really stood out was from a high school student who wants to study in the US. He asked if the US higher education curriculum would change if Donald Trump were to be elected president, adding rather emphatically that he would not study in the US if this was the case.
