The liberal West is witnessing a global shift away from the post-World War II order and toward great power competition marked by an ascending China and resurgent Russia.

Globalization, elite excess, and widespread middle- and lower-middle-class grievances have fueled nationalism in Britain and Israel, just as it has given rise to Trumpism in the United States. These trends are concerning.

The West is witnessing rising risks of conflict, a breakdown of alliances, growing anti-semitism, unsustainable wealth inequality, and rapid technological change. These historical shifts require the hope of America led by a president who embodies soaring American values and integrity — a leader who can chart a path of stability, predictability and vision.

Instead, the Trump administration stokes chaos and dysfunction at home and abroad.
