mandarin a surefire way to please his hosts trump had cause to celebrate as he later claimed president xi would up the sanctions against north korea and move to ally foreign companies access to the country. it was a casual some see cozy encounter with vladimir putin at his next summit that threatened to derail the grand. trump was again dogged by questions of russian meddling in u.s. democracy. by the end of his odyssey he was getting used to the red carpet treatment even if it meant embracing filipino president rodriguez. a man accused of mass extrajudicial killings. this was turned to be entertained. and three.

at the end of the spy you know summit is trumps relationship with new friends that may reese concern among the allies. joining me now for some analysis is scott lucas is a professor of american studies at the university of birmingham in the u.k. welcome scott now trying to describe his trip is tremendously successful how do you see it do you see anything like a trumpet asia strategy emerge from this visit. no there is no grand strategy for the trumpet ministration this is not a president who has a really detailed grasp of what's happening and his advisors are simply trying to cope with a series of issues whether it's the north korean crisis whether it's relations with china whether it's the wider issue of america's standing in the region i think the positive you could say is that with the exception of one very unfortunate tweet about north korea and the sort of ill considered visit with lot of recruiting he
12:05 pm
largely stayed on script so we didn't see an escalation of the north korean crisis as trump has done in recent months we didn't see of course any type of you know friction with china indeed we saw the opposite the chinese went out of their ways to flatter trump which i think raises the wider issue and that is is the united states really strong going to tilt so far in terms of admiration of president xi of china to the point of saying there's really no trade issue with them now that others in the region whether it be japan south korea vietnam or unsettled and indeed is it really china rather than the u.s. this regional leader and then beyond that of course but the big issue here is a sort of struck it's back to washington is the domestic issues that take over and the asian trip overseas very quickly into the distance i mean everything to the unpredictability has been a big concern in asia while strong but able to reassure u.s.
12:06 pm
allies in the region in terms of security for example as you said his determination to combat the threat from north korea. i think trump did make it worse this time he did say as his advisors have insisted that the focus needs to be on diplomatic and economic steps not on military confrontation and you know while some may be concerned about how close he is to the chinese at least he didn't you know on the other hand rattle up the confrontation over the south china sea so in that sense no very bad things were done but there's nothing really very positive that can come out of trump right now you know that there's nothing that you can say look trump is setting a very defined course in the way that he will be able to handle diplomacy as president united states is more question about whether his defense secretary his national security adviser his secretary of state can work with allies in the future when they can all make tim scott thompson has made huge gains on trade and said from now
12:07 pm
on trade would be more fair and reciprocal he said he signed deals with the much three hundred billion dollars and he's made lots of friends in the region surely all of this is a big game for the u.s. no because those are the big trade issues i mean for example the huge trade issue is that trump has withdrawn the united states from the transpacific partnership which most asian countries and australia are embracing so trump in a way already had isolated it in the u.s. trump did not resolve the bilateral trade issues say between the u.s. and china or between the u.s. and south korea remember here's a president only a couple of months ago was threatening to scrap trade deals with south korea that was running a trade war with the chinese now we don't know exactly what he will do when he gets back to washington scott lucas professor of american studies at the university of maine living in the u.k. thank you very much for that analysis thank you. listen to a look at some of the stories making news around the world present trends oldest
