Trump restores American trust with allies in the Middle East
The Epoch Times - 05/25/2017
Trump did not mention “democracy” in the speech—he noted that he promised in his inaugural address that “America will not seek to impose our way of life on others”—and said his vision for those gathered together at the summit was one of peace, security, and prosperity.
According to Max Abrahms, professor of political science at Northeastern University, “When Trump goes to the Muslim world and says he is a realist, that is very welcome news” to national leaders. The United States, Abrahms points out, has had a history of trying to overthrow regimes that don’t share our ideology. Realism does not base policy on spreading an ideology.
