The world always observes U.S. presidential elections with bated breath, as the changing of the guard in Washington can have ripple effects felt across the globe. This is the first in a two-part series that considers what U.S. foreign policy might look like starting in 2017, when President Barack Obama has left the White House and one of this year's candidates has replaced him. Here we will consider the future direction of U.S. foreign policy should the leading Republican candidate, Donald J. Trump, become the next president. Trump seems to possess a view of the United States as a global power, with a dominant military and economy (all of which the United States already has), supportive allies (although the leaders of the United Kingdom, Canada and France, among others, have criticized him), and little regard for the institutional and legal architecture of the international system that was constructed and led by the United States.How the United States would continue to lead an international economic order it helped create while abandoning the principles on which it was founded is difficult to ascertain.If Trump could reshape U.S. foreign policy in line with the statements he has made during his campaign so far, then the U.S. position in the world would be very different.
