By Greg Roman.. When US President Donald Trump vowed during his election campaign to put ‘America First,’ many commentators mocked him for what was a very reasonable policy.

 For a number of years, especially under former president Barack Obama, American foreign policy had been subservient to internationalism, and on many occasions trying to work through crises through compromise and multilateralism. Israel always played second fiddle to America’s outreach to Iran; embracing of Islamist parties in Egypt and Tunisia, and bending over backwards to Turkey. America’s friends were left in the dust under Obama, and under Trump, America’s allies in the region received a welcome come back into its strategic umbrella.

However, we can see the failure of this policy most clearly in the Iran nuclear deal, the nuclear agreement with Iran. It was a bad agreement because it allowed Iran to divide and conquer those it ostensibly negotiated with and the terms were set according to the lowest common denominator, the least resistant like the EU, China and Russia. Nonetheless, Trump is changing all that in the short amount of time he has spent in the White House. Read the full story.
