Canada and America are cousins. We don’t stab each other in the back | Margaret MacMillan | Opinion | The Guardian

The Trump administration is throwing away with both hands the soft power, the moral authority and the network of relationships that have served the US well. Trump himself seems far more comfortable with authoritarian regimes such as Russia, the Philippines or Saudi Arabia than he does with older friends such as Britain, France or Germany. The G7 was a useful meeting place for like-minded nations. It is probably done for. What next? Nato? The IMF? World Bank? World Trade Organization? The United States is shattering an international order – economic but also political – that has served the world and the US itself well. Poor Canada and poor world too.
