Trump’s Policies Make USA Lose Their Leading Position in the West


More and more international experts are concerned about Donald Trump’s policies. Some of them are concerned that because of him and his actions, the USA may lose their leading role in the Western world.  

 

 

 

 

According to Fareed Zakaria, political expert, CNN host and columnist for The Washington Post, Trump’s recent political decisions have made the European Union so united that Putin could never have dreamed of. Even though he is not going to make the Western world collapse, the USA may still lose the number-one status in the Western world.

At this point, international experts start making brave assumptions about Trump’s doctrine. His first decisions remind them of the most significant deviation from the two-party system established after World War II.
 
They say, Donlad Trump perceives the modern world as some kind of an arena where everyone is fighting for their lives and domination over others. High-ranking politicians admit that instead of rejecting the chaotic nature of the USA’s current foreign policy, trump’s administration has accepted and put up with it.
 
Having the world’s biggest army and intelligence service, America has military bases all over the world. This means that no one can say that American isn’t familiar with political and military rivalry.
 
In 1945, the entire world changed. Back then, Washington was trying hard to establish a new world order amid the economic, political, and military weakness of Europe and Asia after World War II.
 
The USA created institutions, rules and standards encouraging peaceful resolution instead of wars and conflicts. The system let international trade create an environment for every country to benefit from this. Also, they created certain mechanisms for managing global problems beyond the scope of the power of any particular country. For decades the system worked just fine, even though the USSR and some other players hadn’t accepted it. Still, the USA, Western Europe, and Canada did manage to coexist, cooperate, and compete peacefully in multiple fields. Europe started competing in creating jobs, economic growth as the global expansion was ousted from their agenda. This area kept on expanding. Later on, Japan, South Korea and some Latin American countries joined it as well. This group of countries were in constant confrontation with the USSR and the rest of the Soviet world. After the USSR collapsed on 1991, former Soviet countries started striving for the more open and transparent world order. Yet, the USA has been driving the process ever since. For decades, the American political establishment has been proud of this achievement.
 
Now it seems that Donald Trump may change the state of affairs in the Western world for the first time since 1945. It’s getting more and more obvious that he is neglecting everything that has been achieved ever since, especially as he keeps on playing tough with America’s allies while still admiring Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping. That’s why international experts are concerned that Donald trump may gradually destroy the existing world order and create space for a new one, with China and India as the leaders.
 

 

However, some experts still believe that his actions may result in the opposite. In particular, his actions may reinforce the existing world order and help Western Europe revive.

U.S. Energy Revolution Announced by Trump Threatens Russia

Donald Trump’s speech about starting a new energy revolution together is now discussed by the international community. It seems that the USA is going to start a new policy regarding commodities. The changes are expected to take place within the next 10 years.
 

 

Apparently, America’s new energy policy is aimed at dominating the global markets over time. That’s why Trump and his administration are now betting big on the local oil and gas production. The thing is, the sources of the so-called green energy are not capable of replacing hydrocarbons for now, which is why they still have to rely mostly on conventional energy carriers, especially as shale oil and gas production has been booming over the last few years.

Does China Oust Russia From Central Asia?

As the situation in Afghanistan is getting worse, this is raising a lot of concerns in the international expert community. The Islamic terrorist threat may spread from there to Russian and China, they say.

 

 
According to a Norwegian observer for Dagbladet, there exist 5 countries in Central Asia that can be seen as potential threats to Russia and China. The thing is, the Islamic terrorism may well spread from those countries to their neighbors. They say that Afghanistan is now the biggest potential threat since the amount of armed conflicts in the country are getting more and more frequent and tough. As Taliban (the local terrorist organization) is said to be sponsored and suppled with arm and ammo, the USA seems to be putting the blame for this on Russia.

Two Reasons Why Russia Keeps Losing Influence Over Post-Soviet States

After the USSR ceased to exist, the Kremlin was counting on retaining their influence in the region. However, the truth is that Russia as the major successor to the USSR has been losing its influence over the remaining post-soviet states. There are 2 reasons for that.

 

 
According to the related report recently published by private American analytic company Stratfor, there is a range of new tendencies making it difficult for Russia to stay influential in the post-soviet region, especially when it comes to Ukraine. The two major reasons for that are believed to be the declining role of the Russian language in the region as well as the existing threats of mass protest inside Russia itself.

China Doesn’t Need Russian Gas and Pipelines

Don’t you remember how a couple of years ago Gazprom cut natural gas supplies to Ukraine a number of times. By the way, Ukraine alone used to buy 55 billion cubic meters of natural gas back then. Now Ukraine buys no natural gas form Russia at all. Apparently, Moscow keeps on looking for other outlets. There has been a lot of buzz about China as a new big outlet for Russian natural gas and crude oil. It turns out that two new pipelines should have transferred to China some 38 billion cubic meters of natural gas every year. Yet, this was the maximum amount, and it couldn’t clearly make up for the export of natural gas to Ukraine.

Putin and Trump Part Ways

According to The Daily Telegraph observer Con Coughlin, even if Donald Trump used to seek ways to improve the relations with Russia, today he is probably going to really abandon this idea. The thing is that not so long ago, the U.S. hit a Syrian fight jet, the one belonging to Bashar Asad’s troop. Since Putin and Asad are allies, this fact is definitely going to affect the process of improving the U.S.-Russia relations, and probably suspend this process for the near future.
