Jordan and the US at the Beginning of the Trump Era

Also available in Deutsch

While Donald Trump’s executive orders and the focus of his administration on “America first” have left many political leaders in the world with sentiments ranging from apprehension and anticipation to dread and fear, the relationship between the United States and the Jordanian government is stronger than ever.

While Donald Trump’s executive orders and the focus of his administration on “America first” have left many political leaders in the world with sentiments ranging from apprehension and anticipation to dread and fear, the relationship between the United States and the Jordanian government is stronger than ever. King Abdullah II was the first Arab leader, indeed one of the first world leaders, to meet with President Trump on the 2nd of February 2017. Last week, just two days before the US response to the alleged chemical attack by Bashar Al-Assad’s forces in Khan Sheikhoun, King Abdullah II and President Trump met for the second time. Both leaders have stated their commitment to peace efforts and anti-terrorism strategies, re-affirming Jordan’s role as mediator, military and strategic ally to the US.
