The Donald has adopted the same foreign policy approach as Obama - praising foes and insulting allies
During his presidential campaign, Donald Trump accused Barack Obama of treating America's adversaries "with tender love and care" while allies were "snubbed and criticised by an administration that lacks moral clarity".
"We've picked fights with our oldest friends," Mr Trump declared in his April 2016 foreign policy speech, adding, "We've had a president who dislikes our friends and bows to our enemies."
Mr Trump was absolutely right. From Iran to Cuba, Mr Obama bent over backwards to court the US's adversaries. At the same time, he mistreated its closest allies - allowing Israel to get bullied by the UN Security Council and cancelling missile defence deals with Poland and the Czech Republic in a misguided effort to curry favour with Moscow.
