"America First,Trump says. America last is more like it. His inchoate argument is that America for too long has been “losing,” a situation he has set out to correct with nonnegotiable demands and gratuitous confrontations. By backing out of international commitments, he is ceding the future to the powers he claims to be protecting Americans from. In an economically interdependent world, that is a false promise which erodes American credibility & critically important global relationship, and cedes influence & the investment opportunities that go with it to ambitious nations like China. If revoked or substantially renegotiated, Nafta would join alist of agreements on which Mr. Trump has reneged, including the Paris accord on climate change and the Trans-Pacific Partnership, another trade agreement. He has meanwhile raised doubts about his commitment to NATO. And to what end?"
