Could Trump Erase President Obama's Foreign Policy Legacy?


President Barack Obama's foreign policy legacy relies partly on a foundation of unilateral actions. Successor Donald Trump could reverse these actions with a signature. President Obama used executive authorities that provided a legal path around a Republican-controlled Congress dedicated to blocking his agenda. Trump frequently contradicted himself during the campaign, and made it difficult to know which policies he would pursue.

  • Obama's Legacy At A Crossroads

    With the defeat of Hillary Clinton and the subsequent loss of what could fairly have been described as a third presidential term, President Barack Obama's legacy is imperiled. Working around a Republican Congress that had long blocked his ideas, Obama spent his final two years in office using his executive power and international agreements in an aggressive attempt to reshape American and international policy. He helped orchestrate the agreement reached with Iran to limit its nuclear weapons program; Trump has said he will scrap it. President-elect Donald Trump has vowed to repeal and replace large swaths of the Affordable Care Act, Obama's signature healthcare reform overhaul which left America with its lowest rate of uninsured people in decades. How history judges the "Obama Era" now will, in part, depend on Trump and whether he will unwind or leave in place his predecessor's policies.
