Issue:(U.S. "Pivot" to Asia)
(The Diplomat, By Chris Carothers) US President Donald Trump's unpredictability are allowing Beijing to greater influence the East Asian sphere, especially given South Korea and Taiwan's current political issues and the looming threat of North Korea. South Korea's issues with Trump relate to his stance on North Korea and related issues as well as trade, while Taiwan deals with Trump's backing away from initially friendly relations in favor of one toward China. Issues surrounding human rights also concern South Korea and Taiwan while Trump backs away from China due to a supposedly weak North Korea position almost as quickly as Trump turned to China. Trump's unpredictability diminishes the power of South Korea and Taiwan in the face of a growing China.
