[Autom. eng. transl.] Since the end of the bipolar system, multilateralism, soft power and democracy have been for the United States the cornerstones of a bipartisan consensus in relation to the country's international role, and ways of pursuing its interests, promoting their values at the same time. Although with different approaches and methods, the administrations that have followed the White House in this phase have largely been inspired by a grand strategy based on strengthening and expanding the liberal (western) order inherited from the Cold War. However, the 2016 elections, which led Donald Trump to the US Presidency, seem to mark the erosion of this consensus and a clear turnaround. The analysis of the positions expressed in the electoral campaign, and of the policies promoted in the first months of mandate in relation to multilateralism, soft power and democracy helps to understand to what extent the "Trump doctrine" presents significant discontinuities with respect to those who have it preceded, and more generally, whether it could constitute a threat to some fundamental elements of the liberal order.
