President Donald Trump erupted onto the global stage under the isolationist banner "America First" – bent on tearing the multilateral world order down to its foundations. Now, at the end of his first year in office, the United States and its shell-shocked allies face several escalating crises that could plunge the world into devastating new conflicts.When Trump came to office in January, his predecessor Barack Obama warned that North Korea's breakneck dash to develop long-range nuclear missiles was his most pressing threat.Along with Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris climate change accords, the Iran deal row has best symbolized Trump's "America First" break with multilateral diplomacy.Since his first weeks in office, Trump has also railed against America's traditional allies, accusing them of short-changing America by failing to find mutual defense pacts.That was before Trump broke with decades of U.S. peacemaking practice and unilaterally recognized the divided and disputed city of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
