Republican Donald Trump won the White House on November 8, 2016, with 306 electoral votes against Democratic Hillary Clinton's 232 votes, and he took office as the 45th President of the United States. Trump's election rhetoric on increasing military budgets, emphasizing US spending cuts in NATO and the Pacific, and even a plan to withdraw from NATO, along with full support for Israel and amending the nuclear deal with Iran and denial of the internationalism sought in the Obama presidency depicts an isolationist yet heroic political worldview for America's future that will only move toward consolidating the power of command and prohibition in the United States – a policy that is largely rooted in the patriotic-political worldview of Andrew Jackson (the seventh president of the United States) and has been used many times in American history by presidents such as Ronald Reagan. Now the main question of the article is what is Donald Trump's political worldview, especially in the field of foreign policy, which is based on the ideas of Andrew Jackson? The main premise of the article is that Trump's foreign policy will be centered on countering the emergence of new powers such as Russia, China and Iran, and the so-called anti-hegemonic axis as the new "other" for America, and his administration will pursue what Jackson calls the "American Dream."
