“Trump... no longer enter into multilateral trade deals.”
Well.. Between nations, each still have their own “BUTTS” to look after so it’s understandable where he (DJT) stands in that respect...
Trump wants BILATERAL trade and investment deals, as he repeatedly told everyone at the APEC meet. No more TPPs, NAFTAs, WTOs, etc.
The US is not ceding Asia to China. That would be the last thing on America’s mind...
More rather, economically speaking that is, what the US wants is more direct access to a larger chunk of this prime cut of Angus beef we call the Chinese market that they can’t penetrate because American goods are not competitive enough for the Chinese market.
China is now free to create the largest multilateral trading bloc in the world in Asia. Of course, China will also need to deal separately with the USA on a bilateral basis but in geo-economic terms, China is IN while the USA is OUT of Asia.
As for recent US Indian buddy buddy cozying up to one another relationship using carrot sticks call F-16’s and possibly F-35’s , I think its more a case of the US’s exploitation of Indian weakness into becoming canon fodders to do America’s dirty China job for them.
Clearly, the USA sees itself as a military superpower which China should acknowledge by refraining from challenging US military dominance in the so-called "Indo-Pacific" region which stretches from the Pacific to the Indian Oceans. The Yanks know that and want to treat India as their next colony which Modi has delivered to them on a silver platter, like a loyal Sepoy willing to sell his mother to his White masters in the USA.
As for Russo Indian relations, they (Russians) know that can’t play China against the Indians and the Indians against China, i.e., Brahmos, Su-57’s, Aculas for India, and Su-35’s and Russian powerplants to fire up China’s JF-17, J-10, etc., etc. That is just not how life work.
Modi's sellout of his Mother India to his White masters in the USA has effectively nullified Russia's military deals with India because the Yanks will ask Modi to dump Russia before they agree to sell him outdated and useless US junk such as the F-16 to those stupid Sepoys in India. This move cuts off Russia's military deals with its largest customer/partner who happens to be the biggest importer of weapons in the world. But that leaves India completely dependent upon the USA for its national defense. That's how the USA will keep India on a leash because Russia will no longer be a weapons supplier to India.
Modi is the Blowtard of the Year.
