As the TPP trade pact fizzles away, China would happily expand its domain of influence in the Pacific Rim region while U.S. allies and friends inevitably look for a more reliable partner in the neighborhood. As these geopolitical realities set in, will Trump’s campaign promises to “Make America Great Again” eventually result in “Making China Great Again” and leave the U.S. much less relevant?

The US’s self-proclaimed “American Century” has led Washington to assume that it “had the right or responsibility to order the world’s affairs,” two prominent American scholars, which has resulted in a series of military failed adventures that could never have resolved enormously complex issues. As the US presidential election approaches, a reality check is in order.
