Foreign leaders, foreign policy experts, and former U.S. diplomats have indicated they see a decline in America’s global standing.

According to the Los Angeles Times, many have suggested that President Trump “has reduced U.S. influence or altered it in ways that are less constructive. On a range of policy issues, Trump has taken positions that disqualified the United States from the debate or rendered it irrelevant.”

Particularly impactful decisions include the withdrawal of the U.S. from the Paris Climate agreement, a failure to fully address non-ISIS related conflicts in Syria and Iraq, and the recent declaration that the U.S. will acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The void being left where U.S. influence once was, according to some critics, leaves ample space for a number of nations, and especially China, to rise to positions of greater world standing.
