Dr. Alexandra de Hoop Scheffer was invited as the main guest of the top French TV TF1 news broadcaster for their evening live program to comment on the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States. Alexandra de Hoop Scheffer explained that Trump’s election could be explained by his capacity to break the so-called “blue wall” that was taken for granted for Hillary Clinton, by winning the votes of the white working classes and even a good proportion of latino votes. Alexandra de Hoop Scheffer also made a case that Trump, if not expected to become as much a credible commander-in-chief as Hillary Clinton would have been, could instead become a “re-negotiator-in-chief” willing to redefine U.S. traditional military commitments and trade agreements.
