Andrew Davies and Mark Thomson, Director of the Defence and Strategy Program, and Senior Analyst of Defence Economics, respectively, at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), explain that “It remains to be seen whether the Trump administration has what is needed to ‘underpin stability’ in the Pacific… Australia looks to the United States for leadership, but will not follow it blindly down the rabbit hole.”
