  • Donald Trump Foreign Policy Analysis

    militarily. In a neo-realist perspective, if China becomes a dominant power in Asia and wields commensurate power around the world as the U.S., the U.S. cannot appeal to the higher authority to settle disputes with China effectively. Therefore, it follows that the U.S. contains China in check militarily as soon as possible.
