It is also not to suggest that Trump poses no threat to the liberal order. The image of US as a free country served as an ideal to look up to, for many aspiring democracies. It helped promote the value of democracy, one of the ingredients of the liberal order. With the blatant bigotry, racist overtones and other similar acts, he is damaging the image of the US as a free country, thereby threatening the democratic values of the liberal order.
I leave the reader with a question: Are Trump's actions preparing the US to adjust for a multipolar world, where others take lead in resolving issues and not the US?
