Defining “Trumpism”

Please let me be the first to coin the word for politics and diplomacy “trumpism.”

Trumpism consists of doing something so far out of left field that it confuses your opponents and allows you to take control of the situation. Trump’s suggestion that he might meet the leader of North Korea, like his enthusiastic reaching out to Putin, is typical of this strategy. But I would like to say it is an extremely high-risk approach and is unlikely to be successful in the long run.
