Superpower America with an amateur at the helm 33 MIN, 22 SEC

No members of the so-called "establishment" are more distressed by Donald Trump's election than diplomats and intelligence experts -- here and around the world. Descriptions of their reactions range from "a palpable sense of dread" to fear of "Apocalypse Now." Europeans see the future of NATO at stake, while Russians are celebrating — along with Middle Eastern dictators and jihadists — albeit for different reasons. Trump's own Republican Party is deeply divided, along with the Democrats, over what might be next for America's role in the world.

Mexico's reaction to Trump's election 10 MIN, 6 SEC

Horrified Mexicans watched the American presidential election returns on TV, as the US chose the man who promised a wall between our two countries, the deportation of undocumented people and the end of NAFTA — all despite deep ties between our people and our economies.


"Trump y Peña Nieto out"

After Canada and China, America’s third largest trading partner is Mexico, and there may be no country that watched the election results as intensely. Viewers did not need any reminder about that "wall" -- to keep out the rapists, drug dealers and other "bad hombres." Eric Martin is in Mexico City for Bloomberg News
