Summary "Policy changes pursued by the Trump administration, both in the domestic arena as well as in foreign policy, do not fully reflect the positions of the American public. While national security strategy documents issued by the administration focus on rivalries with China and Russia, recent surveys by the Pew Research Center indicate that the North Korean nuclear threat and terrorism are the most disquieting threats to the American public. At the same time, survey results reinforce the message of the strategy documents, whereby Washington is not embracing a policy of isolationism. An important warning light is a trend whereby Israel finds itself at the hub of the inter-party political controversy in American society. As regards subjects relating to Israeli policy - the Iranian issue and the Palestinian issue - there is a clear gap between Republicans and Democrats, and this phenomenon has been exacerbated over the past two years. The main challenge facing Israel now is how to work with the Trump administration while containing the distancing of the liberal American public and how to improve its image among this sector, in order to regain the status of an ally enjoying bi-partisan support."
