Exploring the impact of the November 2016 presidential election result on the international community, and analysing global perceptions of Donald Trump as president.

Donald Trump has promised that his presidency will radically change the direction of US foreign policy and revitalise the US economy.

As part of this work, the Chatham House US and Americas Programme produced a series of Election Notes (made possible through the support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation) on major foreign policy issues, explaining the background, the relative positions of the main contenders for the White House prior to the election, and the international implications of each.
