          He was speaking at Trump’s America, a conference hosted by UCD Clinton Institute this month. More than 60 experts spoke on subjects that examined the political and cultural impact of Donald Trump’s election as President of the United States.

          Professor Brigham said the organisational shift from Obama to Trump was the “worst transition probably in the history of the Republic as far as foreign affairs.”

          Instead, staff at the U.S. State Department were left waiting for members of Trump’s team to contact them so that information could be shared.


          Professor Brigham said professionals at both the State Department and National Security Council (NSC) were “marginalised very early in the process.”

          “To this day most people who are lifers inside State and NSC don’t have a clear direction of where the policy is going or even if they have a job.”

          Professor Robert K. Brigham is Shirley Ecker Boskey Professor of History and International Relations at Vassar College in New York. He is a specialist on U.S. foreign policy and has taught at the United States Military Academy at West Point.
