The United States is a global superpower undergoing transformation. In 1941, the journalist Henry Luce famously wrote that the 20th century was ?the American century,? shaped by American political, ideological, and moral leadership. There are indications that this era is coming to an end. What international role does the United States play under the Trump presidency? How has it changed historically?
