Jack Heinsius: Trump’s foreign policy doubles down on isolationism, misogyny

So Donald Trump’s way to deal with the world is to make America an economic isolationist in a globe that increasingly relies on interdependent trade. To insult women and disparage their aspirations and accomplishments at a time when women’s movements are growing in practically every nation. And in a time where we need the brains and energy of immigrants more than ever, he decides to criminalize their presence and alienate our border partners. This seems a strange path to make America great again.
