Podcast: Trump in Asia…No Disasters So Far?

Chinese leader Xi Jinping with Donald Trump in Beijing

UPDATE, NOV 11: After Donald Trump addressed the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, making vague declarations about trade and how the US will choose its friends and foes, I spoke with Monocle 24’s The Briefing about the state of US foreign and economic policy.

Listen from 6:20:

Trump offered nothing but platitudes about how awful [the trade situation] is. But here’s the big shift: rather than blaming China now — because he’s a great fan of leader Xi Jinping — it’s all the fault of past leaders of Washington.

As Donald Trump continues his 12-day tour of Asia — successfully flattered by the Chinese into replacing his past blame of their “rape” of the US with praise of leader Xi Jinping — I spoke with London’s talkRADIO on Thursday about the journey so far and whether there is any significance to Trump’s pronouncements, from the North Korean crisis to trade issues.

Listen from 5:04 in 1230-1300 Segment
