President Donald Trump has been in office for more than 100 days, but his foreign policy is still giving rise to more questions than answers. The President has made a policy U-turn in several areas (such as Syria or Russia) but stuck to his pre-election rhetoric in other areas (such as trade). What is his strategy, what are his tactics? Which other policy changes might be in the pipeline? And what does this mean for Europe?
