    Abstract

    Well, that was unexpected. But it’s happened. The question now is, how will the election of Donald Trump change international relations? That question itself is overwhelming on multiple levels. There are Trump’s personal international business ties, unparalleled in modern American political history. There’s his wariness of multilateralism and diplomacy. There’s his stated intention to go after China. There’s Trump’s lack of experience in international relations, which suggests that his advisers are likely to be even more important (and the names of people being bandied about for top positions at State and Defense suggest a decisive break from the Obama administration’s policies). There’s also a question of whether Trump fundamentally sees the world in zero-sum terms. Whoever won the election was going to face some immediate pressing crises, but Trump’s election complicates these situations.
