President-Elect Donald Trump Faces Foreign-Policy Quandaries

President-elect Donald Trump is set to inherit one of the most complicated, high-stakes foreign-policy portfolios in a generation, stepping into a tense world as a little-known leader whose positions on key issues are largely undefined.

Mr. Trump has suggested in speeches, interviews and statements on the campaign trail that he would reorient U.S. policy in potentially significant ways, questioning U.S. support to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and other historic alliances, upending trade deals and drawing closer to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

He said earlier this year that he would consider recognizing Russia’s control of Ukraine’s Crimea region, forcibly seized by Moscow in 2014, a step the Obama administration has said the U.S. would never take.

Mr. Trump has advanced the prospect of a reduced role for the U.S. on the world stage and has suggested that several U.S. allies including South Korea, Japan and Saudi Arabia may have to begin defending themselves—even obtaining their own nuclear weapons—rather than relying on the U.S. for protection.

But precisely how the former businessman will assemble and execute his foreign-policy agenda remains unclear, because some of his positions have shifted over the course of his campaign.

Foreign leaders the world over have long expressed concern about the prospect of the consequences of a Trump presidency, mostly because of campaign-trail rhetoric advocating harsher scrutiny of immigrants and U.S. allies. French President François Hollande has said Mr. Trump’s election would be dangerous, and German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier called him a “hate preacher” whose politics are dangerous for the world.
