Trump's pragmatic pivot back to Asia

Trump's pragmatic pivot back to Asia

 

It is ironic and counter-intuitive, but the administration of President Donald Trump is making

more inroads for the United States into South-east Asia than the neighbourhood might have expected.

His predecessor, Mr Barack Obama, invested enormous energy and the entire geostrategy of his two presidential

terms into a much-touted "pivot to Asia" in rebalancing American interests and resources from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

Yet Mr Trump, a walking controversy with a rambunctious leadership style and little foreign policy experience,

may end up being more effective for US-South-east Asia relations.
