Another Triumph for Trump!

Another Triumph for Trump!

Quote:
Gareth Evans, who served as Australia's foreign minister from 1988 to 1996, urged Australia to become more independent, back away from its longtime reliance on the U.S. and instead recognize China as a "global rule-maker."

In a speech to the National Press Club in Canberra, Evans questioned whether Australia's historically close alliance with the U.S. still serves the nation's interests amid China's rising power and Trump's unpredictable leadership.

"The Australia-United States alliance has become much more immediately salient since the election of Donald Trump -- manifestly, the most ill-informed, underprepared, ethically challenged and psychologically ill-equipped president in the United States history," said Evans, who is now the chancellor of the Australian National University. "Personally driven by instinct and impulse, unhampered by knowledge or judgment, he has led an administration acting so far manifestly on the basis of postures, not of policies."

The bottom line is that some seeds are duds.
