America Goes Rogue

Primary tabs

In this pay-to-play era of American foreign policy, where other nations apparently gain favor with  the president by contributing to his private businesses, I am intrigued by the Trump administration’s random acts of hostility toward traditional allies.
A recent example is Vice President Pence’s insistence on unacceptable preconditions for a meeting that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sought on NAFTA.
Another is the imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada, Mexico and the European Union.
