Abstract Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are an unlikely couple. She the experienced politician and former Secretary of State, he the outsider, whose opinions frequently appear crude and contradictory. Moreover, they both advocate completely different ideals as far as America's role in the world is concerned. Clinton champions a liberal international order, to the preservation of which the USA is dedicating significant resources, while Trump is putting his chips on "America first". Which of these ideals will shape US politics in the future does not solely depend on the presidential election results. The policy realignment currently being implemented by the two major parties could prove just as relevant. (Autorenreferat)
