    Overview:

    Eschewing from his predecessors’ policies and commitments, Trumpism paved the way for a new chapter for American international engagements. As far as performance evaluation goes, the mid-term elections seems to be a good time as any. Beyond its domestic concerns, it is also a growing source of uncertainty for the broader international community. For a state that has long enjoyed the privileges as an acting global hegemon, how will this isolationist slant affect the position of American leadership? Is the overall persuasiveness and appeal of Trumpism a product of engaging in short term grievances or channelling American sentiment long left ignored by previous administrations?
