Given the mercurial nature of U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, it seems a fool's game to speculate over how he will govern at home and maintain U.S. leadership abroad. Since his surprising Nov. 8 election victory, the real-estate mogul has flip-flopped on several key issues. In an interview with the New York Times published on Nov. 22, for example, Trump declared that he would not carry out his threat of investigating and possibly jailing his Democratic rival in the election, Hillary Clinton. On the critical issue of climate change, he appeared to retreat from his campaign promise of withdrawing from the 2015 Paris Accord, claiming he would keep an "open mind."
