Protectionism

Trump’s America will shift to protectionism

within the nascent stage of his administration.

The country will retreat into a shell

to replenish its resources

and re-fashion its mode of international relationships.

It has to, if only to retain the dominance

of the American dollar.

Inside this shell, America will rejuvenate

and thusly will it resume its

leading position in the world.

In the past years, America over-extended

its military influence,

always in mind the threat of Russian aggression.

This was a mistake.

The world does not have to bow and kow-tow to America

for the Americans to lead.

Besides, Russia has enough of its own domestic problems

to challenge America for world domination.

And China?

This country will have problems feeding

its own people

and will retain the American currency for foreign transactions.

I believe that America will retreat into

a shell of its own making

to heal and restore its resources

for another try in world domination

via business transactions.
