How has the Trump Presidency changed International Relations?

Traditional alliances appear to be shaken up by the foreign policy of Trump. Around the globe, it is facing new threats along with military action. The indelible mark left on international relations is one thing that has been accepted by both the supporters and critics of the Trump Presidency. Not only the course of the foreign policy of the United States has been altered by the Trump Presidency, but the world order got disrupted too. It is also expected that for ages, the impact will be felt due to the decisions considered and taken by Trump.

A gift recently has been delivered by North Korea to the United States that is the successful launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile. Before splashing into the Sea of Japan, a journey of high-altitude trajectory was covered of 1,730 miles. Since office was undertaken by Trump, it was the tenth missile test and a substantial development in missile program of North Korea was marked. A missile was finally acquired by the rogue regime with the capacity of reaching the United States if fired in the right trajectory.

Yet it has been assessed by the experts that the re-entry technology required for a nuclear warhead to accomplish its objective has not been presented by the North Korea. Neither has it had the capability of miniaturizing a nuclear warhead for launching on an ICBM. However, some previous tests did revealed that the ICBM was fired through a mobile launcher. This eventually made it quite difficult for intelligence of the United States for tracking the movement of weapons of North Korea before they were launched. The CBM test was referred to as a new escalation of the threat to the United States by the secretary of State Rex Tillerson. However, it has been insisted by the administration of Trump that diplomacy will be used while dealing with its latest provocation.
