How Will Trump Impact Global Politics? Four Speakers Weigh In

How Will the Trump Presidency Impact International Relations, Geopolitics, and U.S. Foreign Policy?



David Ignatius

Foregn Affairs Columnist, The Washington Post

“We’re looking at a world where Donald Trump has turned upside down our traditional expectations about U.S. power and foreign policy. We’ll all be struggling to find our way in this new environment, assessing where we’re heading – and the potential costs and benefits for America and the world.”

“The election of Donald Trump has the potential to transform American foreign policy, discarding the approach to the world followed by the previous 12 presidents.

“A Trump presidency will plunge the United States into an era of unknowns that has little parallel in the nation’s 240-year history. While Donald J. Trump has been vague about his position on many issues, he has been explicit about several that would fundamentally change America’s direction.”

"It's now Trump's world, and we're all just living in it. And yet, only one person actually knows what that world is going to look like: Trump himself. The rest of us can only guess between a whole range of plausible scenarios. We could end up with a fairly conventional Republican administration. Or we could be entering an age of unprecedented chaos, marked American retrenchment, bitter trade wars, unchecked Russian and Chinese aggression, and more. The old system has broken down and predicting the future has become harder than ever. The Age of Trump will be an Age of Uncertainty; beyond that, we'll just have to wait and see."
