Trump’s Surprise For China

Among the surprises in the finals days of the Trump Administration was the declassification of its strategic framework for the Indo-Pacific in an effort to counter the Chinese Communist Party in the region. The plan was written in 2018 by Matthew Pottinger, a former China journalist and Marine Corp officer who later became President Trump’s Deputy National Security Advisor. It was kept secret until the declassification.

The Indo-Pacific region is home to one-third of the world’s economy and nearly two-thirds of the planet’s population. China has been the dominant force in the area, which includes the Asia Pacific region and areas connected by the Indian Ocean. Trump released the plan one week before leaving office in hopes that the incoming administration would use it to quell the CCP’s aggressiveness in the region. Here’s more on the declass from China’s Uncensored Chris Chappell, plus reports on Mike Pompeo’s support for Taiwan and how to tackle the China economy.
