Former President Donald Trump has a decent shot at winning reelection in 2024. Contrary to popular perception, that would not portend an unpredictable presidency, at least when it comes to defense. Trump has bedrock convictions about war and peace that would shape his military posture. Among other things, he believes in peace through strength, nuclear firepower rather than arms control, prioritizing the China threat, avoiding over-reliance on allies, staying out of regional conflicts, and using long-range weapons as an alternative to American “boots on the ground.” I have written a commentary for Forbes here.
