Since Trump took office in 2016, U.S. foreign policy has undergone a series of drastic adjustments, causing shocks in U.S. relations with the world. During his four-year term, Trump launched a global trade war, “exited” from various multilateral cooperation mechanisms, built a border wall, reshaped the US alliance system, and intensified strategic competition with China. This series of diplomatic actions not only reflects the strong personal style of President Trump, but also reflects the transformation of the US diplomatic strategy. The core concept of Trump’s foreign policies is “America First”, and Trump has transferred the “jungle state” of business and the law of negotiation to the field of international relations, boosting the trend of geopolitics, and regards the game of great powers as American diplomacy and security. The primary challenge of his diplomatic strategies is to maximize the relative benefits of the United States through reciprocal transactions, extreme pressure and other strategies. Through analysis, the author finds that Trump’s foreign policy is still subordinate to the hegemonic category of “destined leadership”, but the domestic economic and social structure of the United States has undergone dramatic changes, and the world has gradually moved from a world dominated or led by the United States to a world of “multiple power centers”.
