U.S. foreign policy: Keep the main thing the main thing | Real Clear Defense

Gil Barndollar, Senior Fellow at Defense Priorities, talks about the recent years surrounding foreign policy and the years to come. As many leaders of the country continue to see China as becoming a possible threat, Barndollar says one of Trump biggest accomplishments during his term was reorienting America’s policies on China. Trump has also strengthened many of the U.S.’s partnerships in the eastern hemisphere such as Japan, Australia, and India. Russia has shown that it remains a great power and Barndollar explains that no matter what, America “should at least keep its options open and remain realist in its approach to Russia.” As both presidential candidates agree on limiting their counterterrorism footprint on affairs such as Afghanistan, a demilitarization of foreign policy will most likely be in the next administration’s policy goals.
