The 'Pivot' Gets Trumped: The Asia-Pacific Under President Trump


The Diplomat‘s Ankit Panda (@nktpnd) and Prashanth Parameswaran (@TheAsianist) discuss the implications of a Donald J. Trump presidency in the United States on the Asia-Pacific. The podcast considers the possible developments a Trump foreign policy could unleash in East Asia, Southeast Asia, and South Asia. The episode also covers Trump’s Asia staffing plans, military priorities, views on trade, and the possibility of a complete departure from the status quo world order. For background, read Parameswaran’s “What Will Donald Trump’s Asia Policy Look Like?,” and Panda’s “Donald Trump Won. Prepare For Uncharted Geopolitical Waters in Asia.”
