Just a few months into the Trump administration,
it still isn’t clear what course the president’s foreign policy will ultimately
take. What is clear, however, is that the
impulsiveness, combativeness, and recklessness that characterized Donald
Trump’s election campaign have survived the transition into the presidency. Since taking
office, Trump has continued to challenge accepted norms, break with diplomatic
traditions, and respond to perceived slights or provocations with insults or
threats of his own.
