The world is moving to adapt to the reality that Donald Trump is president of the United States.Our friends and allies may hope his election eventually will be reversed, and maybe they think America turned a corner with the 2018 midterm elections.But they can't count on it, so these countries must consider that the United States may be a different country from what they had believed.Trump blasted Macron's comments as "very insulting," and he continued to complain in tweets Tuesday about French ingratitude and claimed Macron was trying to distract from his "very low" approval ratings.The world is moving on, in other ways, from Trump's "America First" idea of U.S. power.As Trump's America retreats from global diplomatic engagements, other opportunistic countries are stepping forward.Once upon a time, America owned this role of global broker, but not anymore.America suffered a political hiccup in 2016, electing a man who was manifestly unprepared to be president.
