Trump details ‘America first’ foreign policy views, threatening to withdraw troops from Japan, South Korea

Kyodo, JIJI, AFP-JIJI

U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump has said he is open to the idea of both Japan and South Korea developing their own nuclear weapons and would be willing to withdraw U.S. troops from their soil, the New York Times reported in its online edition Saturday.

In an interview with the major U.S. newspaper, the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination said that allowing the two countries to have their own nuclear arsenal would reduce pressure in the United States to come to their defense against North Korea and China.

The United States “cannot be the policeman of the world,” Trump said and suggested that Tokyo and Seoul would move in that direction anyway if Washington “keeps on its path, its current paths of weakness.”

Asked if he would consider removing troops from Japan and South Korea unless the two countries paid more to cover the costs of housing and feeding them, Trump said “yes.” “I would not do so happily, but I would be willing to do it,” the New York businessman and billionaire said.

He also said he would seek to renegotiate many fundamental treaties with American allies, possibly including a 56-year-old security pact with Japan, which he described as “a pretty one-sided agreement.”

“We have to go out with full force” to defend Japan under the bilateral pact if the country comes under an armed attack, Trump noted. But he added, “If we’re attacked, they do not have to come to our defense.” “That’s a real problem.”

He also said, “We cannot afford to be losing vast amounts of billions of dollars on all of this.”

When an interviewer told him that Japan pays more for U.S. troops than any other country in the world, Trump said, “They do but still far less than it costs us.”

Trump also showed his tolerance of Japan and South Korea having their own nuclear arsenals for their protection from countries such as North Korea, saying that if the United States “keeps on its path, its current path of weakness, they’re going to want to have that anyway, with or without me discussing it.”

In the interview, Trump also stressed his “America first” policy and said that he would review the country’s relations with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and Arab nations such as Saudi Arabia.

Trump said he was not an isolationist, but described the United States as a poor debtor nation that disproportionately funds international alliances such as NATO and the United Nations.

Similarly lopsided relationships exist with allies such as Japan, South Korea and Saudi Arabia, he said.

“We have been disrespected, mocked and ripped off for many, many years by people that were smarter, shrewder, tougher,” he told The Times.

“So America first, yes, we will not be ripped off anymore. We’re going to be friendly with everybody, but we’re not going to be taken advantage of by anybody,” he said.

He also slammed President Barack Obama’s administration for seeking a political exit for Syrian President Bashar Assad while simultaneously fighting the Islamic State group as “madness and idiocy.”

“I’m not saying Assad is a good man, ’cause he’s not, but our far greater problem is not Assad, it’s ISIS,” he said.

The real estate developer said he would instead target the oil that provides a significant portion of the extremist group’s funding, cracking down on underground banking channels to cut off the flow of money.

Trump, who has repeatedly called for Middle Eastern allies to contribute boots on the ground in the fight against IS, said he would “probably” stop buying oil from countries like Saudi Arabia unless they did so or reimbursed the United States for its role in the fight.

        I will vote Trump. Hate TPP and PC. He is for freedom to vaccinate or not. And pro 2nd amendment.

        I do not mind pulling troops back home. And would be all for Japan getting nukes. But all this must be done with cooperation of Japanese.

        There would have to be a lot of support militarily during Japan’s window of vulnerability as it assumes a greater role.

        And finally, I do not trust China. I would be happy to leave Europe, but it coould be the USA and Japan will have to maintain close military ties in spite of the fact that I would like us to be more like in the 1800’s when our business was America 1st and business.

      • J.P. Bunny

        Ah yes, the wonderful 1800s. No need for vaccinations, food, drug, water, or workplace safety. A time when Americans were free to own darker skinned people, and kill the natives. A fun and carefree time that saw the U.S. declare that the Western Hemisphere was its private playground, while invading neighboring countries with impunity. Businesses were free from nasty regulations and were able to do whatever it took to make a profit, even if workers died, the environment was trashed, and economic depressions were common.

        If only the tin foil hat wearing mob were to actually read about history rather than listen to the rantings of an orange haired dictator wannabe. But, such people aren’t really into reading, and the truth.

        I am against sharia law. They now have 80 such courts in Britain. Why do you hate women’s equality ?

        Which of the leftist wars were you for ? LBJ in Vietnam ? Clinton bombing Yugoslavia ? Obama’s missles in Libya ? We would have gone to war in Syria to oust assad without the last minute British Parlement vote.

        Actually, I would say Trump has better leftist ccredentials than Hillary or Obama.

        Remember the NDAA that Obama pushed through. Before it was dem working class that supported tariffs and Fortune 500 dominated planet.

        Dems are just as much, perhaps more, the party of a ruthless oligarchy as the republicans.

        Trump just may fight against that.

    The man raves. He has the mentality of a 5yo. It seems the man never moved past that stage, and it is evident in his speech and thought patterns. Did he even go through the K-12 system? How can you go through the American school system and somehow miss the whole reason Japan and America have ties to begin with? You know? Something to do with World War 2 and Japan’s constitution? It should be evident to anyone outside of the US how incompetent Donald Drumpf is, and how unfit he is for the US presidency. You know something that I find disconcerting? How little attention the Japanese mass-media giving little to no attention to Bernie Sanders. Have they been following what states he’s been winning? Or is the Japanese media too in the pocket of Billary Clinton? Think it possible, Japan. Bernie Sanders could be your next president. Be ready for WWIII if the American people are stupid and idiotic enough to allow Donald Drumpf to be president.

    • Lori

      Keep calling him Drumpf. I don’t believe it bothers him that he is called by his ancestral/immigrant name. He also has nothing against immigrants, his family members were immigrants, his wife is one…they just are LEGAL. I know you are saying it to belittle him. He is a business man who has businesses across the world so I am sure he knows about foreign relations unlike others…he has to for having business across the globe. BTW…minorities can call people names, claim white folks are racists, say white folks are privileged but who takes the handouts, who claims they are victims of racism, who has affirmative action? Maybe you ought to pull out a dictionary and see what the word means. It’s actually working hard for everything you have and that’s not privileged. Also, I have not had a free ride in life, I am a woman in a man’s world but I don’t play the victim nor do I pull out the gender card. I make my own way. Try it sometime. BTW…keep in mind you can say what you want but Trump’s been successful in his own right. Grant it he took millions and made billions but not everyone can. I would rather be him than you.

      • Clickonthewhatnow

        Did you not see John Oliver’s piece on Trump? The whole reason this Drumpf thing came about was because he told another candidate not to hide their history, yet his family altered their name. Trump should change his name back and be proud of his heritage, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

      • Lori

        I know where it came from. John Oliver, who I’m not sure if he can even vote or is a citizen but is trying to manipulate voters into thinking, wrongly I might add, that Trump is ashamed of his name or heritage. His family history is pretty well public so I am not sure how he would be ashamed of it. I’ve even seen him talk about his heritage and family many times. You really don’t understand immigrants of that era do you? My family came from Czechoslovakia in the late 1800s and changed their name to sound more like it is pronounced. That is what people did back in those days. My name is now spelled nothing like it was. You may want to look into this further rather than listening to someone who is a somewhat comedian with a fake news show. I can tell you my surname was not altered because we were not proud of our heritage. Maybe if you understood a little more of what immigrants did back then. They were more into assimilating and becoming Americans first and learning the language but no way were they interested in forgetting about their heritage. And no, my family is not about to change our name back to what is was before immigrating to the US either.

      • Clickonthewhatnow

        The point is, someone whose family name is different than it was in the past should NOT be telling others to be proud of their heritage. Pot, meet kettle. If he had not said that of someone else, there’d be no problem. But he always opens his mouth far too wide.

      • blondein_tokyo

        Making fun of Trump is the job of comedians. I’m sorry if you don’t like it. If it makes you feel better, every candidate has been a target, without exception.
        On the other hand, have you listened to Trump’s speeches? Have you heard how he speaks of the other candidates, how he calls them names (lying Cruz) and actually called Cruz’s wife ugly?
        That is the level of rehtoric we are looking at from Trump. You can hardly complain that comedians make fun of him, when his manner of speaking is at grade-school level. And he is a political candidate – not a comedian. How can this be justified?

      • Eileen Kuch

        Lori has a valid point. Slavic (and even Greek) names are often changed so that Americans will be able to spell and pronounce them.
        As for Ted Cruz, he’s just as much a pathological liar as our current POTUS, Barack Obama. BTW, Cruz is not even eligible to run, because he was born in Canada and held Canadian citizenship until two years ago. He had to give that citizenship up in order to run for the US Senate seat in Texas. If he hadn’t done this, he wouldn’t have been eligible for the Senate seat.
        According to Article II of the US Constitution, only a natural born US citizen may run for POTUS; and, Cruz doesn’t fit that requirement. His father was a Cuban-Canadian, having been born in Cuba and later acquired Canadian citizenship after meeting the requirements. As for his mother – who was born in the US (Wilmington, DE) – her US citizenship was cast in doubt; mainly, because voting in a foreign election (in her case, Canada) is a renunciation of US citizenship. Cruz cannot seal those records; Obama was wrong to seal his when his natural born citizenship was in doubt. Sealing such records is only an attempt to hide these facts.

        Who takes handouts? If you mean welfare, then the answer is “people of all ethnicities”.
        Who claims they are vicitms of racisim? People who have been discriminated against.
        Who has affrimitive action? People who have been discriminated against and so need a step up.
        “Try it sometime”? Who do you think you are asking this, exactly?
        I see nothing at all that is either insightful or intelligent in your post, and a lot of racist stereotypes and right-wing talking points, repreated almost verbatim, with no though put into them…which is exactly what I have come to expect from Trump supporters.

    Japan without the US would be like a weak school bully without its big ass brother who is always there preventing others from beating his ass. Japan for the past 50 years has been like a thin school bully who constantly antagonizes others and then runs behind his big brother and shouts – come get me, you suckers! China would be very pleased to see the big brother absent.

    • Joe Cortez

      Excuse me, who has Japan antagonized for the past 50 years? Japan got its ass handed to it in 1945 when they were A-bombed twice. They were then forced to give up everything. Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t it the US who basically made Japan sign their constitution which says they can’t have an army or attack anyone? Which is why they only have a flimsy self-defense? I think it’s funny you’re making Japan the “bully” here. Hasn’t it been China taking islands and ocean space by building artificial islands and claiming the sea-space around it as its own? And it teaming up with North Korea to antagonize Japan and South Korea by firing missiles into the sea? The way I see it, Japan has been at the mercy of China/North Korea, and the US has been the only thing to stand in the way of them fully advancing on Japan. Maybe I’m wrong. I am open to correction. Do please educate me.

    He just lost my vote. If there was ever a one-sided “agreement ” it was the one forced on Japan after Matthew Perry came steaming into their harbor uninvited during the 1850’s. From the 1850’s to the early 1900’s, American bullied Japan. Why?….because they could. If Japan decided that they wanted to go it alone, and cancel the security agreement, I would say “fine”, and wish them well. Anyone who doubts their ability to stand on their own has not studied their accomplishments in rebuilding a great nation after WW2.

    Donald Trump is absolutely correct – Japan and South Korea can defend themselves, Europe can defend itself, NATO spending must be massively curtailed, and all of these alliances must be very carefully re-examined, if not completely withdrawn from. They do not benefit America, and America cannot pay for them any longer, because America is a broke paper tiger. Isolationism makes much more sense in the nuclear weapons era than ever before. Instead of wasting $1T+ in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, how much safer would America have been if they spent a fraction of that on enhanced homeland security and simply banned all Muslims from entering US territory immediately after 9/11? It is time for America to gracefully step away from the world stage before it does even more harm to itself and to others.

        Exactly. When I joined the military in 1986, they asked me if I was gay or a communist. I answered no to both questions. There was a 10ooo dollar fine for lying. So people told the truth.

        No gays or communists were allowed in the military.

        Yeah, here’s what’s going to happen, you’re going to ask people if they’re Muslim. Since everyone knows Muslims aren’t allowed, non-Muslims will say no. Muslims will also say no.

    As an enthusiastic Trump supporter, the only real worries I have would be Trump ruining relations with Japan. They are the country I most want to stay allied with.

    • Philosopher

      He has already made a lot of countries angry and he’s not even in office yet. Are you okay with him as president ruining relations with Mexico, America’s direct neighbour and great trade partner; China, one of America’s greatest trade partners and all of the Muslim countries some of whom America depends on for energy supplies? What do you think the damage to those three groups of relationships would do to America’s economy?
      He claims to be a successful businessman but he’s been in charge of the bankrupting of dozens of companies. Do you want to risk him doing that to your country as well?

  • Paul Martin

    Trump is RIGHT again…WHY

    should Americans ALWAYS risk

    their lives on the front lines to

    protect other countries who don’t

    really even like or appreciate them

    and who are quite capable of

    defending themselves?

        lol idiot

      • R0ninX3ph

        Because Libya, Syria, Yemen aren’t all offshoots of the same conflict that has been raging in the Middle East for the last 30 years since Desert Storm in the 80’s or anything right? Nah, must be Obama.

        FDR started World War 2 hey? Similarly Wilson with World War 1? Interesting historical revisionism you’ve got going on there.

      • Chris Houston✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃˡᶦˢᵗ

        Nothing is Obama’s fault, he was just cleaning up Libya/Syria/Pakistan/Yemen with bombs.
        Yes FDR started WWll
        Go do some real research

      • R0ninX3ph

        Weird, I thought World War 2 started in Europe with a Fascist regime bent on uniting Europe under its own banner. So glad you put me straight and it was actually the United States who started it.

        Thanks. :-)

        I notice you didn’t address the more serious issues of Drumpf’s appalling business track record.

        Who says I am making fun of anything? I have many motives, many of which I doubt you can guess. Have you ever wondered why so many people are calling him by his ancestral name?

    1922-1965 we had zero immigration.
    We are full up.

    “Are you and Oliver saying he can’t be proud of his heritage UNLESS he changes his name back to what it had been before it was changed by his family BEFORE he was even born?”

    No, how about he mention that his family name used to be Drumpf? He doesn’t need to change it back, but if he’s going to tell someone else not to hide from their heritage, he’d best disclose his.
