Trump Angers U.S. Allies and Enemies with Foreign Policy Parting Shots

President Donald Trump's administration is entering his final week in office amid a flurry of foreign policy activity, even as the president faces possible impeachment and widespread criticism at home amid chaotic scenes of insurrection in the nation's capital.

This week, the administration designated Cuba as a State Sponsor of Terrorism and the Yemeni Houthi militant organization as a terrorist organization. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also lifted curbs on official U.S. contacts with Taiwanese officials this weekend, and on Tuesday accused Iran of becoming a new "home base" for the Al-Qaeda terrorist group.

The cascade of developments has angered American allies and enemies, who are awaiting Trump's departure and preparing for a new administration led by President-Elect Joe Biden. But Trump's activities since his election loss look set to hamper Biden's efforts abroad.

One unnamed U.S. official speaking with Foreign Policy described the actions as "fire sale diplomacy."


Trump's going to lite a few fires and take a massive shit on a lot of people before he goes. That's just what the 74 year old man child does.
