On its way out, Trump administration reveals policy to counter China with support to India
WASHINGTON: On its way out of power, the Trump administration on Wednesday declassified a Indo-Pacific policy it evolved and shaped during its time in office to reveal broad and tough measures to contain China, including "accelerating India’s rise,” through diplomatic, military, and intelligence support.
Public disclosure of the policy will also put pressure on the incoming Biden dispensation to stay on course with an evolving US-China-India policy that has progressively gotten tougher on Beig.
"The declassification of the Framework today demonstrates, with transparency, America’s strategic commitments to the Indo-Pacific and to our allies and partners in the region," Trump's National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien wrote in a January 5, memo included with the strategy document.
Trump brought US closer to India than any president could do in the past. Trump was friendly though he was also business like when dealing with India. Trump has created the path for India's rapid rise, which the Democrats will find very difficult to block.
Trump was always good for India
For all his otherwise condemnable actions Trump must be lauded for standing up to Beig
Trump has many many faults, but India is going to suffer due to Biden Komala mind set, which is pro Paki and Pro Cheeny.
Hope Biden walks the same road.
President Trump has proved again that he is a friend of India
modi kneels down infront of trump. Chinese dont....
Trump was the only American president with balls to counter China, call out Islamic terrorism and move US embassy to Jerusalem.
Whatever is the temper of Trump but he will always be remembered for bringing Indo-US relationship the closest for whatever reasons. Thank you Donald Trump.
Trump is a friend of India.
Philipose Sunny Philipose
God bless Donald trump. GOD bless United States of America
Trump was a true friend of India. He will be missed. The only problem with him was that he was not diplomatic and did not know what to talk when. He has done a lot for US, but he will still go down in the history as a bad president. He is the only president who had guts to stand up against China and challenge them.
By declassification of this policy, one thing at least is clear- in spite of whatever Trump did, he has National Interest at heart and was serious in checking influence of China. Which is also the policy of US, but set aside by several other Presidents, just to please China.
Trump a friend for India and Indians in India.
China deserves to be cornered in the best interest of peaceful world.
Thanks Mr. Trump! We Indians wont forget you
And our Indian Americans voted for Biden who has a pro-China attitude.
India has to fight ro-ue China alone irrespective of the declassification.
Trump is a great friend of India.
