Close to two weeks in office and the US President has signed on 18 executive orders and memos already. The President who kept the world media on its toes always managed to leave a hint of what is to come on social media. It isn't a record of any sorts, since his predecessor signed 19 executive orders in the first 12 days of his presidency, but the one thing that perhaps stood out is how this very shrill the political rhetoric that is so markedly Trumpian hasn't faded in the face of the most important political office on the planet. However, there is no denying the fact that most of these 'executive decisions', be it the building of a wall along Mexico or the banning of entry of refugees, are issues he spoke about extensively during his campaign, so of course everything so far is according to 'plan'.

President Donald Trump is undoubtedly at the helm of international politics, as his decisions will have far reaching consequences for America and the world. His ideological moorings will hit the shores of the global south, his policy of economical protectionism will cause a shift in how the world trades, his ban on a select Muslim majority countries may possibly encourage other nations to follow suit.

What is this new Trumpian world order we face now? How will the world align itself? With so much nervous uncertainty, how does India chart its course? With all these questions we try and decode on this week's episode of The Big Fight, the phenomenon that is President Trump.
