There was no conflict over Taiwan, either, following Trump's questioning of America's long-standing "one China" policy.It was as if Trump wanted to make China, not America, great again.Trump's hope of cooperating more closely with Russia at the expense of U.S. allies also went unrealized, and the official U.S. position in the Ukrainian conflict has not changed. Of course, that is largely due to Russian President Vladimir Putin's decision to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, which has made it impossible for Trump to reorient America's Russia policy without triggering a domestic political firestorm.There is still a big question mark hovering over U.S. foreign policy in the form of Trump himself.So, looking back at 2017, one gets the impression that while U.S. foreign policy remained largely intact, it has also become completely unpredictable.If America's policies are difficult to predict, and if Trump's behavior undermines the reliability of the U.S. government, the international order will be vulnerable to immense turmoil.As the U.S. approaches its midterm elections in November, it will be important to consider how domestic political events might shape the country's foreign policy.
With a new global order, who will win the 21st century?
