I was reading this (http://foreignpolicy.com/2016/11/09/china-just-won-the-u-s-election-trump-victory/) opinion piece on China and I noticed that it touches on this point of moral substance. The soft power aspect will probably come up in discussions about Europe eventually, too.

The funny thing is that I think a measured, careful detente with Russia, pursued from a position of firmness and with an eye to minimising the inevitable feather-ruffling in Europe, has many attractions from a US point of view. But if that NATO expenditures thing is accurate, then rather than signalling that he would like to build Western consensus, Trump might be poised to strike a body blow to NATO cohesion for basically no clear benefit.
