This article analyses, however speculative, the potential effect Trump’s policies may have on foreign aid, especially the Official Development Assistance. The point of departure is the acknowledgment that up to date Trump has not clearly articulated foreign aid policies. In the absence of such policies, the discussion focuses on Trump’s foreign trade rhetoric and seeks to make a link to the potential foreign aid policies. In the discussion, the notion of globalization, isolationism and protectionism are examined, and the inference is drawn that Trump shows strong inclinations towards neo-mercantilist structural realism. In conclusion, it is stipulated that Trumponomics may, due to USA's reduced contributions to multilateral agencies, have a significant impact on Official Development Assistance,
generally, and potentially on the structure and functions of the USAID and the Millennium Challenge Corporation, specifically.
