Colin Powell Speaks With The Washington Ideas Forum


Atlantic Live

Former Secretary of State (for George W. Bush) Colin Powell spoke with the president and CEO of The Aspen Institute Walter Isaacson as part of the Washington Ideas Forum, co-hosted by the Institute and the Atlantic.

He discussed the Iran deal, Syria, ISIS, The Iraq War, immigration, and other things.

Powell generally agreed with the structure of the Iran deal, and said the U.S. should work within its parameters.  When discussing immigration, Powell said, “I think the American people have to understand we’re an immigrant nation,” he said, adding, “it is our history, it is our tradition…we have been built on the backs of immigrants.”

Powell also implored those in the audience to consider the positive impact of immigrant workers.
