Under a Biden administration US relations with both European and Asian allies will improve. The "pivot to Asia" started under Obama, not Trump.

In seeing a rising and assertive China, Japanese conservatives prefer and promote Trump for 2020. That may be a strategic mistake. Trump has no hesitation to scrap the decades-old alliance if Beijing offers a better deal for him and his family. All is about money and money talks. I'm already disappointed and fed up.

Both parties are the same. Exploit the colonies by bullying and fear.

No doubt America's relationship with its traditional allies will be vastly improved under Biden's leadership. Soldiers will be returned to Germany and the extortion on Japan and South Korea for more money will stop.

Trump is and always will be a total idiot who looks after himself first, last and always. His country means nothing more to him than a way to make more money for himself.

You mean the way your country is treating Taiwan?

Under a Biden administration US relations with both European and Asian allies will improve. The "pivot to Asia" started under Obama, not Trump (OssanAmerica).

In case Trump lost his second term, I believe China should worry more as it will the time for the US and its allies to reconsider the establishment of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) – a signature of Obama.

Trump's decision to abandon TPP only benefited China.

The world will be a better place with a return to competence and integrity, and a rejection of incompetence and corruption. The only one made Great Again by Trump was Putin.

Japans future...

Not in the hands of Tokyo.

Not in the hands of Japanese citizens.

-In the hands of the White House in USA.

-In the hands of Trump or whoever is President at that time.

-Japan gets nuked today... Tomorrow we have to call White House, ask if anything will be done? No, America said No.

What now? What's the back up plan if the American doesn't do anything, cares about it's own interest! What then?

MMMMMMMM Japan must understand that the 2nd world War had been over for 76 years. Japanese had paid for 76 years. It's time that Japan understand that ASIAN where they are in.

So you prefer Japan be a vassal state to China than an ally of the west?
