I frequently travel overseas, and invariably my foreign friends ask, with varying degrees of bewilderment: What in the world is going on in your country?Yet Trump lost the popular vote by nearly 3 million.If a hundred thousand votes had been cast differently in those states, Trump would have lost the Electoral College and the presidency.That said, Trump's victory points to a real problem of growing social and regional inequality in the United States. The second thing I tell my foreign friends is not to underestimate Trump's communications skills.Sometimes my friends talk as though the sky is falling and ask if Trump is as dangerous a narcissist as Mussolini.Finally, my friends ask what all of this means for American foreign policy and the liberal international order led by the U.S. since 1945 .During the 2016 campaign, Trump was the first major party candidate in 70 years to call the American alliance system into question.
