Abstract

Throughout his 2016 presidential election campaign, Donald Trump claimed that the US had been losing its status as the most powerful nation in the world, and that if elected he would "Make America Great Again". Carla Norrlof writes that while America's superpower status has changed little in recent decades, Trump was able to feed on the anger of many voters who had not benefited from the US’ promotion of the liberal international order. She argues that the country has little to gain under Trump’s “America First” policies, and those at the bottom would be unlikely to see any significant material gains.
