The Marshall Plan was an audacious, innovative strategy to tackle the most pressing challenges of its time. In 1947, Europe was reeling from the devastation of World War II. The United States put forward the Marshall Plan at this critical juncture, making economic and technical aid available on one condition: that it be used to foster cooperation among nations. The Marshall Plan is a concrete example of the scale of change made possible by bold thinking and international cooperation.
President Trump’s first foreign trip as commander in chief began May 19 and included stops at NATO headquarters in Brussels and in Italy for a Group of Seven meeting. When it concluded May 27, many commentators argued that U.S.-European relations were at a post-World War II low point.
The big idea: James Mattis, on a tour across Asia designed to reassure allies who are panicked about President Trump’s “America First” foreign policy, was asked several hours after Saturday’s terrorist attack on the London Bridge whether he had any reaction.
In the years since the Cold War, it is hard to recall a time when there was as much hand-wringing and dire prognosticating about NATO’s impending demise as has followed the swearing in of U.S. President Donald Trump. There is hardly a story on NATO that does not proclaim that Americans and Europeans are about to go their separate ways, and barely a speech by a U.S. or European official that does not trigger editorials opining that the alliance is on its last legs, that the allies no longer see eye to eye, and that the United States is about to pack up and leave Europe.
ussian President Vladimir Putin has expressed deep opposition to the idea of Sweden joining NATO, calling its potential membership of the U.S.-led alliance a “threat” that would need to be “eliminated.”
