Trump in Asia

Listen 49:17

Guests: Simon Denyer, Jacques deLisle

President Trump is making his longest foreign trip as president to East Asia. Obviously, the North Korean threat will take center stage when he talks with the leaders of China, Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, and the Philippines. Trump will meet with Chinese president Xi Jingping, who is openly trying to make China the most powerful country in the world. And, Trump’s meeting with the Filipino president is getting backlash from Human rights groups, due to his use of extrajudicial killings. We’ll talk about all of this and more with The Washington Post’s China bureau chief, SIMON DENYER, and with JACQUES deLISLE, deputy director of The University of Pennsylvania’s Center for the Study of Contemporary China, and director of The Foreign Policy Research Institute’s Asia Program.
