It depends on the situation and players.

On one hand, when dealing with Europe and other western powers, a great deal of moral and political power has been lost. Other nations no longer look to the US for leadership, since the currency regime has trouble spelling leadership.

On the other hand, it does leave enemies and rivals on uncertain footing. When dealing with a reasonable, intelligent leader, you can anticipate their response to situations. A rational president won't carpet bomb another nation for making fun of his hands. The current president might try. This means some enemies may hesitate to attack or push the US to avoid potential backlash. This could let the administrative bully other nations into doing as they are told simply to avoid disproportionate conflicts.
