It provides insights into Donald Trump’s White House and explores how his unpredictable approach to international affairs is affecting the volatile Asian region.

- Michael Wesley explores the challenges and risks for Australia as it rushes to find a new plan for surviving in a post-America Asia.
- David Kilcullen reports from the US on Trump’s effect on Washington and how the president’s team will affect Australia.
- Andrew Davies analyses the Australian military’s dependence on the United States and the trade-off for Canberra as it weighs the cost of self-reliance.
