But on foreign policy, there are almost no parallels whatsoever. Aside from a pledge to increase military spending, Trump’s national security policies have nothing in common with Ronald Reagan’s.
By January 2017 we may have an unprecedented situation in global politics: three women leaders in the G7. Angela Merkel of Germany and Theresa May of Great Britain may be joined by a third, Hillary Clinton of the United States.
