US Foreign Policy directly affects "us" and by us I mean other Anglosphere nations. When Tony Blair talks of the "special relationship" and John Howard talks about "allies," they are referring to the UKUSA SIGINT Agreement of 1948.The Department's mission is to shape and sustain a peaceful, prosperous, just, and democratic world and foster conditions for stability and progress for the benefit of the American people and people everywhere. This mission is shared with the USAID, ensuring we have a common path forward in partnership as we invest in the shared security and prosperity that will ultimately better prepare us for the challenges of tomorrow.

This is one of the most important documents of the Cold War period. This document is the tie that "binds" us all together in US led "regime change." Australia's National Security Policy and Foreign Policy has to be formulated around this document.
With Brexit, I suspect that the Anglosphere will become even more salient. Also, with the US pivot to Asia and most of the SIGINT already coming from Australia for Afghanistan, English speaking nations have a right to be concerned about the next US President.
Hillary's track record has proven to me that she would be a war president. At this stage, I don't think Trump has any blood on his hands.
