The Trump administration’s unconventional approach to international affairs has disrupted traditional diplomacy and posed uncertainties around the world. Much of Trump’s foreign policy is driven by domestic demand. With an increasingly divided America, is Trump’s policy reflective of the United States’ national interest?
