Trump’s foreign policy alarms the world: analysts


PARIS: US Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has rung alarm bells around the world with his proc-lamations on foreign policy, but his targets are increasingly shrugging off his barbs. By suggesting that NATO is “ob-solete” and that Japan and South Korea should acquire nuclear weapons to rid the United States of the burden of protecting those countries, Trump has called into question some of the cornerstones of US foreign policy for dec-ades. The property developer’s comments have earned sharp rebukes from President Barack Obama and Secre-tary of State John Kerry. An exasperated Obama said he was “getting questions constantly from foreign leaders about some of the wackier suggestions that are being made.” Obama said Trump “doesn’t know much about for-eign policy, or nuclear policy, or the Korean peninsula, or the world generally.”
