Donald Trump may prove to be a loose cannon in terms of foreign policy, according to the analysts of the UK Capital Economics consulting company.
“He is likely to take a harder line with China and could create friction in relations with European and other NATO allies,” said the report obtained by Trend.
However, the analysts believe that there is also a prospect of reduced tensions between the US and Russia which could hasten the end of the civil war in Syria.
“In short, even the geopolitical consequences of a Trump presidency may not be entirely negative,” said the report.
Regarding the global economic consequences of Trump’s presidency, the analysts of Capital Economics said that his victory in the US presidential election has, so far, had less impact on financial markets than most anticipated.
“The economic consequences of a Trump presidency for the rest of the world will not be clear for a long time yet, but we suspect that they will also be smaller than many fear,” said the report. “Much will depend on how much Trump moderates his policies when he takes office.”
The presidential election was held in the US November 8. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump won the election. The newly elected president will take office on January 20.
