Despite criticism from President Trump about the efficacy of international organizations and his championing of an “America First” energy policy, Elkind urges the president and his team to not waste an opportunity to invest wisely in an institution that has not only served the United States and its partners well for more than forty years, but has great potential to continue to do so in the next forty.
