From the crisis in the Gulf to the war in Syria, the decisions made in Washington have long-lasting consequences.

US President Donald Trump has taken a "hands-off" approach to foreign policy while pushing his "America First" strategy.

He's long promised to find a solution to the conflict in Palestine with what he calls the "deal of the century".

Now, with an election year coming up in the United States, and an ever-changing political dynamic in the Middle East, what will US policy in the region be?

And, are we heading towards more uncertainty?
