I thought Australia cosidered themselves part of Asia especially where trade is concerned, so why gripe now

The United States is losing interest in the Asia-Pacific region

Probably. Trump's too busy playing golf at one of his properties (paid for by US taxpayers) and looking after family businesses to get fussed about much else. It's hard not to think Trump's primary interest in the Asia-Pacific region is related to getting more trademarks for Ivanka, Inc., more places to develop properties, and more places to sell the trump brand name. Trump's in way over his head in Asia-Pacific, for that matter anywhere. He doesn't seem to understand the roles of government, including his own.

Jacinda Ardern made the comments, and she is Prime Minister of New Zealand. It may seem confusing, but they're really not the same country.

Washington's only interest is in controlling the globe, global domination. The less the US involvement in the Asia/Pacific region the more peaceful it will be.
