For decades, Asian security has been reliant on a series of alliances. Yet President Donald Trump has already called that balance into question with indications that he is open to effecting significant change in the region. From reevaluating security treaties to questioning China’s practices regionally and economically, the Asian Century is now in question. What lies in store for the pivot to Asia under a new administration that, on its third day in office, ordered the formal withdrawal of the US from the TPP? Will Asia remain the focus of America’s foreign policy or will President Trump turn his attention elsewhere? How will traditional alliances such as that between Japan and the US fare in the face of the new US administration’s rhetoric?
