  1. One of the sensible moves of President Donald J. Trump, India, being a thickly populated democratic country that would provide a big market and strong military alliance that would be a friendly asset of the USA. India must be built as a better trading partner, while China will remain a suspicious cheating trader. China already violated the international law of the sea. China makes no sense at all militarily and economically towards the USA.
