Abstract [en]

Since Donald Trump took office there has been split opinions about which foreign policy is led by the President. From his candidacy to his first 2 years in office he has made remarks that can be categorized as falling within the theory of realism, liberalism and populism. This study has been based from the two classical IR-theories realism, liberalism and populism as an unconventional theory aside from IR-theory through an ideology analysis to make sense of which foreign policy is being driven by Trump. The study focuses on two cases: The Middle East and North Korea with security policy in focus. This particular ideology analysis has focused on Trump Twitter account, statements and interviews from news channels and official documents from the White House. This material has been analyzed through ideal types within the two IR-theories and the theory of populism. The results of this study show that Donald Trump falls in within the bounds of realism for the most part based on these cases two cases. But attention is paid to his populist tone and rhetoric and that there is no coherent foreign policy driven in these cases. This much to Trumps outrageous remarks on Twitter and to the media but most of all the contradiction between the president and his own administration.

Abstract [sv]

Sedan Donald Trump intog Vita Huset som USA:s 45:e president har det varit delade meningar kring vilken utrikespolitik som faktiskt förs av Trump. Under hans kandidatur till president och hans första mandatperiod har han uttalat sig både i en ton av realism, liberalism och populism. Denna studie har utgått ifrån de två klassiska IR teorierna realism och liberalism samt populismen som en okonventionell teori inom IR för att genom en ideologianalys försöka få fram vilken utrikespolitik Trump för. Studien inriktar sig på två fall: Mellanöstern och Nordkorea med ett fokus på säkerhetspolitiska aspekter. Ideologianalysen har fokuserat på Trumps Twitterkonto, uttalanden och intervjuer från olika nyhetskällor samt officiella dokument från Vita Huset. Dessa har sedan analyserats genom idealtyper inom de två IR-teorierna samt populismen. Resultatet av studien visar att Donald Trump faller inom kategorin som realist men ett uppmärksammande görs av hans populistiska ton och retorik samt att det inte finns en sammanhängande utrikespolitik på grund av Trumps utspel på Twitter och till media men störst av allt motsägelsen mellan presidenten och hans egen administration.
