Civil Liberties and Counterterrorism in the Trump Era





As a candidate, President Donald Trump repeatedly cited the fear of terrorism to threaten civil liberties. President Trump, in openly musing that torture works and trying to ban Muslims from coming to the United States, represents a complete break from past administrations—including Republican ones—in so openly and directly rejecting the foundational rights on which the United States was built. In light of this, what threats to civil liberties and human rights should we most fear in the coming years, and what are the protections against such threats?

Please join the Center for American Progress for an important discussion with four distinguished former national security policymakers to help cut through the almost hourly controversies emanating from this White House and assess the state of civil liberties and counterterrorism policy in the Trump era.
