Trump isn’t fighting American decline. He’s speeding it up.

 

 

Is the Trump administration creating a “neo-American era in world politics” that will supplant the post-American one that its predecessor presided over? Last week, Walter Russell Mead, who has become perhaps the preeminent intellectual defender of Trump foreign policy, floated this notion in his weekly column in the Wall Street Journal. Sounding much like he’s channeling national security adviser John Bolton, Mead went on to suggest that the Trump administration sees the Middle East as its new proving ground to create a new golden age for the assertion of military power, including bombing Iran. Mead’s only question: whether Trump himself would remain “committed to this approach” or whether he would bail if something went wrong, as it so often does, in that region.

 

But the problem is far more basic than that. Trump hasn’t embarked on a course that could strengthen American might. He’s already well on his way to eviscerating it.
