ROUND TWO OF “THE DONALD AND REALISM” ACADEMIC DEBATE:

Over the week the academic feud of categorisation of The Donald’s foreign policy entered round two.

Couple of weeks back, readers will remember, there was a twitter debate if Donald Trump’s foreign policy is realist, which bordered around three basic points,

  1. His actual policy, if it is even coherent or not.
  2. His Realist tendencies.
  3. His understanding of Realism.

Stephen Walt and Dan Drezner, both subsequently wrote about it.

Fair to say, more needs to be written about it, although one thing is for certain, there is an academic tendency to colour politicians as diverse as Rand Paul, Bernie Sanders, Barack Obama and Donald Trump to be a Realist, which needless to mention, cannot possibly be true.
