The Horrifying Foreign Policy World of Donald Trump!

1

June 5, 2017 by skokielib

While not all of our worst fears have proven out yet, many of them have. Republican President Donald Trump has shown us repeatedly that he is going to throw away more than a half century of US foreign policy. And he’s shown us that he doesn’t care what the generals, career diplomats, historians, or pundits say. He thinks he knows better.

To paraphrase a certain member of the Bush Administration, he has no idea what he doesn’t know. His view is soft on facts and long on petty misguided emotion. And that is a sure fire recipe for problems.

That his own cabinet is not being given the opportunity to influence policy, and that they aren’t in the loop as to what is happening is deeply troubling. That would be troubling with a highly experienced and competent President. But with this President, he does not bode well for America’s future leadership role around the globe.

It’s all quite chilling and disturbing. It undoes decades of foreign policy aimed at stabilizing the world and preventing large regional or global conflict. It puts us all at much greater risk of skirmishes, war, and even the possibility of nuclear annihilation.

The quote that sets me back the most, so much so that it made me gasp, is “I had a very high-placed Asian official from a major ally in Asia not long ago, where you’re sitting, who shook his head with sorrow, and said, ‘Washington, D.C. is now the epicenter of instability in the world,’” Talbott recounted. “What it means is something that our friends and allies around the world have taken for granted for 70 years is no longer something that they can take for granted.”
