Wake up Europe: You may get Trumped

Trump’s foreign policy is labeled by some pundits as Taft isolationism. According to Thomas Wright, Trump “is deeply unhappy with America’s military alliances and feels the United States is overcommitted around the world. America is disadvantaged by the global economy. And he is sympathetic to authoritarian strongmen.” During a visit in Scotland, when asked if he accepts the fact that Crimea is under Russian control, Trump made it clear that Crimea is Europe’s problem much more than America’s. He also stated that America could have very good relations with Russia. In 2000, singing the tune of “Come Home America,” Trump argued that pulling back from Europe will save America millions of dollars annually. So, Europe, take note: Trump is not Cruz, who in 2014 urged President Obama to install anti-ballistic missiles in Eastern Europe as a counter to Russian actions in Ukraine. Nor is he Rubio, who argued that Washington must commit to military reinforcement of Eastern Europe and defend Ukrainian sovereignty.
