Superpower America with an amateur at the helm

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.
