Worldview: Trump's loose talk has global reach
What would happen if a president talked to world leaders in the same explosive patter Donald Trump perfected on the campaign trail?



On edge about Trump's foreign policy
HALIFAX, Canada - The annual Halifax International Security Forum brings together senior Canadian, European, and U.S. military and civilian officials, and you can guess what was on everyone's mind this year:



Worldview: Will Trump respect freedom of the press?
This Thanksgiving, when I've been musing on the many reasons I have to give thanks, my mind flipped back to a meeting I had in 2000 in the Kremlin with a top Russian official.



Worldview: Trump's cabinet is signaling trouble
Last week I suggested Donald Trump's early appointments would suggest whether he intended to act presidential or would remain the bomb-thrower his hard-core base adores.



Worldview: Hong Kong's struggle for democracy
Sometimes it takes a foreigner who is fighting for democracy to remind Americans of how much we take our system for granted. Such a wake-up call is particularly useful when we have a president-elect who admires strongmen and displays indifference to democratic norms.



Worldview: Which Trump will we get?
Who is the #realDonaldTrump? The total disparities in how Americans answer this question are as stunning as the results of the election. We might as well be talking about three different personas - call them the Three Faces of Donald Trump.



Worldview: No checks and balances for Trump
As the results became clear on election eve I got a call from a friend whose 16-year-old daughter was sobbing.



Worldview: Trudy Rubin: Do we really want a demagogue like Trump in the White House?
The other day I received an email that read: "Why is it not surprising that someone named Rubin would be a full fledged lib-tard? Go f- yourself you biased piece of s-."



Worldview: electing Trump would endanger U.S. security
The biggest security threat facing our country at this moment isn't ISIS or Russia. It's the possibility that Donald Trump might be elected president of the United States.



Worldview: Trump's allergy to history
Living in Philadelphia, only blocks from Independence Hall, reminds me of Americans' astonishing good luck in our founding fathers, and in the institutions they devised. My awareness is magnified by travel to countries where people struggle for a fraction of the rights we take for granted.
