The following policy paper aims to introduce the approved leading members of the US Department of State and Defense. It was prepared through the joint efforts of Ryan Brockhaus, senior fellow at the Budapest Fellowship Program, and Simon Szilvási, international manager at Antall József Knowledge Centre. While the former analysed the profiles of the Secretary of Defence and the Deputy Secretary, the latter was elaborating on the National Security Advisor, the Secretary of State and the Deputy Secretary, and the US Ambassador to the United Nations, as well as their possible approach to future US foreign policy. The scope of this paper only allows for important facts, and milestones from the officials’ careers and does not attempt to present their entire professional histories.
