How India Should Handle Trump's America-First Policy

Feb 15, 2017
WASHINGTON - The US capital is a strange place these days. The District of Columbia's coffee shops are running a brisk business, attending to a steady stream of ex-Obama administration officials and patient federal government employees awaiting policy direction from on high. Many members of the Republican policy firmament appear alienated, some bitterly so. Eyeballs are glued to cable news and (especially) to Twitter, curious about where @realDonaldTrump will next train its gunsights. Meanwhile, the White House appears riven by infighting, with considerable speculation as to who might be the administration's first fall guy. Hidden monsters lurk everywhere in this upside-down world. 
 
At the same time, US diplomacy is beginning to assume a semblance of normalcy. Rex Tillerson's arrival at the US Department of State has begun to raise morale among American diplomats. President Donald Trump's reception of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has also gone well, injecting a certain predictability and stability to the United States' Asia policy.
