New regionalism is designed in the Donald Trump National Security Document. The main focus of the new regionalization of security is based on the patterns of "disputed conflict". The concept of "offshore balance" is central to Donald Trump's security policy in the regional environment.
The main question in the article is the following: "New American regionalism is based on what signs are formed and what is the security implication in the regional and international environment?" The hypothesis of the article points to this issue. Which states that "New American regionalism in Southwest Asia and the Arab Middle East is based on offshore equilibrium, which inevitably will lead to continued asymmetric and contingent conflicts in the Middle East security environment." In setting this article from the approach The structure and identity of Barry Buzan are used.
Donald Trump tries to organize new regionalism based on structural components. In such a process, there will be grounds for increased economic and strategic cooperation between the United States, Russia and China. The main focus of Donald Trump's security conflict is regional and sub-national affairs and actors.
