Re: ISSF Policy Series: The “Global Order” Myth

I agree with Tom Maddux and to a substantial degree with Elliott Abrams' Foreign Affairs article "Trump the Traditionalist?". There remains a major caveat, however.  Donald Trump's personal traits, his unfamiliarity with issues, his apparent unwillingness or inability to master the most important topics, and a habit of contradicting his own administration's policies could lead to dangerous or unintended outcomes in the event of a major foreign policy crisis.

Re: ISSF Policy Series: The “Global Order” Myth

I enjoyed reading Professor Andrew Bacevich's essay on President Donald Trump and the Global Order. I do question whether Trump is moving to break with past U.S. policy despite his rhetoric. As Bacevich notes, Trump has exhibited little sense of understanding U.S. policy since 1945 or little evidence of a willingness to study it. Trump wants to be the center of attention; witness his performances at several international meetings, sit-downs with world leaders, etc.

Children in the Age of Trump

Regardless of what side of the political spectrum a person lands on, there is no denying that the election of Donald J. Trump as President of the United States has had a profound, and many would argue, a negative effect on American culture. One of those effects is a disturbing rise—and in some ways an acceptance of—racist language and race-based violence.

PA Election Archive

​​​​​Greetings,

While the 2016 election was underway, a group of Penn State archivists and librarians were busy identifying and collecting sites related to the campaign.  The result is "Pennsylvania Perspectives on the 2016 U.S. Election", a web and social media archive documenting diverse viewpoints from Pennsylvania on the 2016 elections.
