La doctrine Trump: ‘We’re America, Bitch’

La formule serait attribuable à un membre de l'administration. Donald Trump serait convaincu que les États-Unis ne doivent rien à personne, pas même aux alliés. On imagine le genre de réponse qu'on pourrait lui servir...

 "The best distillation of the Trump Doctrine I heard, though, came from a senior White House official with direct access to the president and his thinking. I was talking to this person several weeks ago, and I said, by way of introduction, that I thought it might perhaps be too early to discern a definitive Trump Doctrine.

“No,” the official said. “There’s definitely a Trump Doctrine.”

“What is it?” I asked. Here is the answer I received:

 “The Trump Doctrine is ‘We’re America, Bitch.’ That’s the Trump Doctrine.”

 It struck me almost immediately that this was the most acute, and attitudinally honest, description of the manner in which members of Trump’s team, and Trump himself, understand their role in the world."
