Much of the world has been shocked and dismayed by Donald Trump's electoral success, but there are those who are delighted.Syrian dictator Bashar Assad called Trump a "natural ally".A full-page editorial in a state-run paper there hailed the election of "the mighty Trump," and the 92-year-old dictator has reportedly described Trump as a "friend".What unifies Trump's foreign admirers is the idea that the existing global order is rotten and should be torn down. All the European parties cheering Trump's victory seek the destruction of the European Union and, more generally, the tightly knit Western community centered upon shared values and interests.After 1945, in the wake of a Great Depression and two world wars, Western nations established an international system that was characterized by rules that honored national sovereignty, allowed for the flourishing of global commerce, and encouraged the respect for human rights and liberties.With 5 percent of the world population, the U.S. dominates the global economy, from technology to education to finance to clean energy.America maintains the world's reserve currency, giving it a huge economic advantage.
