Sure, the usual suspects in the State Department and the other fetid recesses of the bureaucracy will try to impose their naïve and dangerous schemes, but thankfully, Trump has named Pompeo and Bolton to top positions. The question is whether or not they will have enough influence to counter the swamp things that will try to swim, fly and slither their way around them.

I doubt that he will go moonbat, a la Obama, on Israel, despite his craving for fame as peacemaker, but we'll see.
