What happened last week at a meeting of Latin American nations with China and other Asian countries in the Chilean city of Viña del Mar is a prime example of how President Donald Trump’s isolationism will diminish U.S. influence in world affairs.

The meeting was convened following Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement that had been signed in 2016 — after seven years of negotiations — between the United States and 11 Asian and Latin American countries, including Japan, Singapore, Australia, Canada, Mexico, Peru and Chile.

Trump had claimed that the TPP was a “potential disaster for our country,” and signed an executive decree shortly after taking office ordering the U.S. pullout. He had earlier vowed that “Americanism, not globalism, will be our credo.”
