Having already instituted worldwide tariffs on steel and aluminum and threatening more taxes on foreign products from China, the European Union and a host of other U.S. allies and rivals, the president is pushing foreign governments to reconsider holding dollars and U.S. Treasury reserves.

“Although the dollar will continue to be used in most trades, there is a possibility that participants in the global economy start to look at alternatives like pricing in euro or pricing in [Chinese] renminbi,” said Karl Schamotta, director of FX strategy and structured products at Cambridge Global Payments in Toronto.

When the British sterling was replaced by the US dollar as the international world currency it had severe negative affects on the United Kingdom.
If the US dollar were to be replaced by some other country's currency, the US will suffer a serious financial blow for both rich and poor for about 2 generations forward and all generations still living.

If anything replaces the Dollar it's probably going to be the Euro.
