With President Trump in office for almost one year, it is time to assess his administration’s policies and their impact on the transatlantic relationship. Has the Trump-administration put forward a coherent plan to fundamentally alter the United States’ foreign policy? Has the US president been true to his word and
transformed his country’s alliances according to a more transactional understanding of partnership? Where does Europe feature in the new administration’s political, economic and security thinking and who are the central figures for policy towards Europe in the White House? How has Europe reacted to the new
tone and, if Washington has neglected established institutions, what are the prospects for bridge-building and productive working relationships outside of these forums?
