What is the likelihood of the US slowly returning to diplomatic isolationism with a Trump victory? With the public condemnation of world leaders , most consequently David Cameron as this would signal major disapproval from one of the US' closest ally. Would this trend shift to approval if he becomes president or will it be the beginning of a growing isolationism. Are the general fears of terrorism enough to prevent this from occurring?

Thoughts?

Very high probability.

We cant afford to be the global police force anymore. Isolationism will reign in our ridiculous levels of military spending. Only then we can become a proper socialist nation.

Also, there really is little difference between Venezuela blaming the USA for it's internal disasters, and Cameron blaming Trump for UK's immigration disasters. Politicians should all burn and fry with how irresponsible they are to the people they represent.

Isolationism is a good thing. We don't need to get wrapped up in wars and we don't need to be allied with every nation and waste our money helping them.

Third world countries aren't helped when governments give money to corrupt governments overseas. It's only helpful when charities invest and governments pressure authoritarians to chip away their power.

And by the way, we give money to more than just third world countries. We give a lot more to nations that we need to be allied with us if we want to stay internationalist.

Isolationism is a good thing. We don't need to get wrapped up in wars and we don't need to be allied with every nation and waste our money helping them.

Would be a good thing to do though.

Good thing to do what? Be isolationist or get wrapped up in wars?

"waste our money helping them"

Don't know about you, but I like the idea of trying to help third world countries.

UK isn't a 3rd world nation.

Didn't say "UK"

Who do you think "them" is? Are you trolling?

"Them" is ambiguous, I think its fair to assume that it could be any country in the world, hence the third world countries.

And yes you are doing the "Are you trolling?" thing, when you know I am not trolling, in an attempt to passively make me feel dumb. Gg, you get the humanitarian of the year award.

Whatever, you took the time to misspell Trump's name when you replied, and then faked victimhood when called out on your trolly behavior. So pathetic. How much is Hillary paying you to troll anyway?
Just curious.

If Trump keeps his word, his foreign policy wouldn't be that bad. But the problem is, he rarely keeps his word. He's flipped flopped on too many issues, I have no idea what his real intent is.

Is this proof that Donald Trump is actually a spawn of Clinton?

American isolationism will naturally result in a more postmodern and ideologically diverse world. You'll have more theocracies, more communist/fascist regimes, and so on. Honestly, this isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Clinton wouldn't touch Isolationism with a 10 foot establishment pole.

The only thing holding American socialism back is the 25% of the budget allocated to the military and other foreign nation subsidies. Trump isolationism is a liberal's wetdream.

I really don't care if Jews, Europeans and the rest of the lot get mad that they can no longer use Anerican troops as cannon fodder.

And how does killing their people do that?
