Richard Haass, President of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), one of the US's most respected foreign policy think tanks, said that the post-American era likely started on Jan 6., 2021 when hundreds of Donald Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol and occupied parts of the building for several hours.
Here is a tweet from Haass:
We are seeing images that I never imagined we would see in this country-in some other capital yes, but not here. No one in the world is likely to see, respect, fear, or depend on us in the same way again. If the post-American era has a start date, it is almost certainly today.— Richard N.

Eurasia Group founder Ian Bremmer said that "100 years after the founding of CFR, its president declared the end of the American-led order."
Here is a look at how CFR, which currently has 5,099 members, has grown its membership since 1921.
Interesting fact: No CFR members reside in four states: West Virginia, Mississippi, South Dakota, and North Dakota.
