What are the security implications of the US-Japan trade deal?


IN SEPTEMBER THEY HOPE TO CEMENT THAT DEAL. LET’S TALK TO FOX NEWS STRATEGIC ANALYST AND RETIRED FOUR STAR GENERAL JACK KEANE. WE WERE GOING TO TALK ABOUT AFGHANISTAN BUT BREAKING NEWS CHANGES THINGS. YOUR SENSE ABOUT THE IMPACT THIS TRADE DEAL WILL HAVE ON OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH JAPAN AND CHINA?>> WELL FIRST OF ALL IT’S NOT SURPRISING THAT WE’RE MAKING A DEAL WITH JAPAN. THIS IS THE WORD LEADER THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS THE CLOSEST RELATIONSHIP TO. HE TALKS TO HIM MORE THAN ANY OTHER WORLD LEADER IT WAS FORGED AS A RESULT OF THE CRISIS IN NORTH KOREA, WHICH HE SET THE PRESIDENCY WHEN HE TOOK POWER. LOOK THE ISSUE WITH CHINA IS THERES GROWING CONSENSUS THAT THEY’RE AN ECONOMIC PREDATOR, BUT WHAT IS ALSO A VERY MUCH PART OF THEIR PLAY BOOK IS THEIR MILITARY AND GEOPOLITICAL EXPANSION, AT THE EXPENSE OF OUR ALLIES AND ALSO UNITED STATES SECURITY, SO THE UNITED STATES IT IS NOT OBVIOUS BECAUSE WE DON’T TALK ABOUT IT THAT MUCH, HAS A COMPREHENSIVE STRATEGY IN CONCERT WITH OUR ALLIES, TO PUSH BACK ON CHINA’S EXPANSION. ECONOMICALLY, LOTS OF ATTENTION PAID TO IT, BUT ALSO, GEO POLITICALLY, AND THAT’S WHAT THIS IS A PART OF AND IT’S ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL THAT WE START TO TAKE A STAND AGAINST THE EXPANSION OF CHINA IMPARTING ON THE WORLD ITSELF. JEDEDIAH: GENERAL SO WHAT ARE THE ACTUAL NATIONAL SECURITY IMPLICATIONS OF A DEAL LIKE THIS WITH JAPAN FOR CHINA? WHEN CHINA IS SITTING BACK AND A LEADERSHIP IN CHINA IS LISTENING TO THIS COME TO FRUITION, ARE THEY NERVOUS?>> I DON’T THINK THEY’RE NECESSARILY NERVOUS YET BECAUSE THEY HAVE HAD THEIR WAY FOR SO MANY YEARS IN TERMS OF THEIR INTIMIDATION AND COERCE CAMPAIGN THE IMPACT THAT HAS HAD ON OUR ALLIES. LET’S JUST TAKE JAPAN TO GIVE YOU A SENSE OF IT. LAST YEAR, ALONE, JAPAN HAD TO ALERT THEIR FIGHTER AIRCRAFT 687 TIMES BECAUSE OF CHINA’S INVASION OF THEIR AIR RIGHTS, THEIR INTERNATIONAL AIR RIGHTS. THIS YEAR THEY’RE UP 30% THAT’S JUST ONE ALLIE AND TAIWAN IS ACTUALLY WORSE THAN THAT, SO YES , THIS IS A STAKE IN THE GROUND. IT’S A POSITION THE UNITED STATES HAS TAKEN AND IT’S CERTAINLY HELPFUL TO US IN TERMS OF THE TRADE AND TARIFF DISAGREEMENTS WE HAVE WITH CHINA BUT IT’S MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN THAT, IN TERMS OF THE GEO POLITICAL ASPECT OF IT AND THE FACT THAT WE’RE UNITING WITH OUR ALLIES, AND CONFRONTING CHINA, IN A WAY THAT THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION WAS NOT WANTING TO DO IS REALLY THE MESSAGE. GRIFF: IS IT YOUR SENSE THEN, GENERAL, THAT THERE IS A SORT OF BUILDING OF THE COALITION OF THE WILLING TO REFER BACK TO A TIME WHEN WE WERE TRYING TO INTER SEED IN THE MIDDLE EAST, BUT IN THIS CASE, PRESIDENT TRUMP BUILDING TRADE DEALS WITH OUR ALLIES LIKE JAPAN, IT LOOKS LIKE WE’LL HAVE ONE WITH THE UK AS WELL, THAT WILL STRENGTHEN OUR MILITARY AND NATIONAL SECURITY THREAT FROM CHINA AS WELL.>> YES THAT’S ABSOLUTELY THE CASE, AND THE FACT THAT YOU BROUGHT UP EUROPE, THE EUROPEANS HAVE ALWAYS TAKEN A KNEE TO CHINA, BECAUSE OF THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE BEEN AN ECONOMIC PREDATOR AND IT’S A FORM OF BLACKMAIL. THE UNITED STATES IS STRENGTHEN ING THE EUROPEANS ALSO , TO STAND UP TO THEM, AND WHILE THAT’S HAPPENING SLOWLY, NOT FAST ENOUGH IN OUR MINDS, IT IS HAPPENING, AND THIS WORLD’S CONSENSUS THAT HAS TAKEN PLACE DEALING WITH CHINA’S AGGRESSIVE AGGRESSIVENESS IS GOING TO BE VERY HELPFUL AND THE WORLD WANTS THE UNITED STATES TO LEAD IN THIS EFFORT AND THE UNITED STATES IS STEPPING UP TO THAT LEADERSHIP ROLE. PETE: GENERAL KEANE STAYING WITH JAPAN AFTERWORLD WAR TWO THEY FAMOUSLY TOOK A DEFENSIVE POSTURE AND DIDN’T SPEND THAT MUCH ON THEIR MILITARY. DO YOU THINK IT’S IMPORTANT AS WE BUILD THIS ALLIANCE THEY BECOME MORE OFFENSIVELY CAPABLE IF NECESSARY?>> WELL THEY VERY MUCH ARE. HE’S PUT MORE INTO THE DEFENSE BUDGET THAN ANY OF HIS PREDECESSORS BY FAR AND HE IS GIVING CONTINUOUS ADVICE TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES NOT JUST ON NORTH KOREA BUT ON CHINA, AND HE IS LOOKING CLEAR- EYED AT EVERY SINGLE DAY OF WHAT CHINA’S INTIMIDATION COERCION IS DOING TO HIS REGIME AND HIS ALLIES IN THE REGION, AND HIS DEFENSIVE POSTURE, AS WELL AS OUR OTHER ALLIES IS VERY IMPORTANT, NOTED ON FOX, THE BIG MAJOR DEAL WITH TAIWAN, THE $8 BILLION DEAL IN THE PURCHASE OF 16 AIRCRAFT IS ALL PART OF THAT STRATEGY. PETE: ABSOLUTELY.

    This is such utter garbage . There ISN'T any trade agreement with Japan. Saying there is "In principle" amounts to no deal whatsoever. Also, there is NO coherent, United strategy against China by the West. To state that Europe is going to follow Trump's "lead" on some sort of grand strategy with Chine is pure fantasy.

  • Japan is a true alliance and believer of Freedom and Democracy ! Thanks President Trump … CCP will meet the end soon as Chinese hope for

  • Japan is a true alliance and believer of Freedom and Democracy ! Thanks President Trump … CCP will meet the end soon as Chinese hope for

  • We should have let Japan completely butcher China during WW2. But we were too kind. Had we done that, maybe we didnt even have to deal with the North Koreans in 1950s.

  • Thomas Cassler says:

    this is all about stopping the exspention of communist aggertion ! winch we should all be conserned with . we must stop it all together !

  • Justin Brinegar says:

    Thank you Trump for leaving your cozy lifestyle to make changes in Washington that were imperative to the US survival…THANK YOU MR. TRUMP!!!

  • TRUMP's Moves on CHINA are BRILLIANT!Hong Kong will be the LEAST of CHINA's concerns As American COs Pull OUT!China would have 100s of millions out of WORK!Let that SINK IN to the Psyche of the Chinese People!GAME CHANGER and LONG OVERDUE!

  • No news network understands the national security implications because they do not have the classification level authorization necessary for access to that information. So why speculate about something that you have absolutely no knowledge about??

  • Why are you doing this to America? This is exactly what our enemies wanted to do to us in past decades!! Now our president is doing it for them! And you dimwits supporting this evil Gang. FOXidized people. How can you believe in Jesus and support Trump and Republicans? They are Everything Jesus didn't want to be.

  • HONG KONG 51st , TAIWAN 52 nd ,Greenland 53 rd. Port Reco 54 th , STATES. It's all Good WIN, WIN,WIN, THANKS PRESIDENT TRUMP for keeping the freedom of the USA.

  • This trade deal represents only the beginning of a massive shift by the west towards focus on other friendly Asian nations and South America, as key business partners and represents a tremendous opportunity for them to grow their economies and grow stronger in their regions, which collectively will help lift them from poverty and the confront the negative forces from the rising territorial threats they are facing, from expansionist tyrannical dictatorship regimes, particularly those rising nations posing threat to global stability.

  • Andrew Macdonald says:

    I’m more concerned about what the security implications are with a President who sides with Putin against his own intelligence community, about the security implications of a President who has fallen “in love” and receives “beautiful” letters from a murderous dictator, and about the security implications of a President who thinks the amazon burning right now is a “Chinese hoax”.

  • japan  and china have very bitter history between themselves,  mortal enemies,  japan is a natural fit with the USA for a trade deal.  japan makes quality   products..  china makes junk

  • Has anyone else ever thought that this is all manufactured? What I mean is our governments are putting us in this . I think there are Chinese people who have had enough of bad government just like Americans did when they voted in Trump . Trump can really fix this . We all need to support it and hopefully one day China can become a republic
    Similar to USA

  • Just About Anything says:

    China got used to previous presidents letting them bend the U.S. over the the negotiating table. Trump demands she be treated with respect.

  • It's really funny going back on the news from the various fake news organizations. Only one day really changes a lot of things and they look silly if you want to go back just one day. Things are looking Rosy for the u.s. kind of messy for communist China. Let's hope nothing happens to Trump because he's a great leader you may not like him but he's a great leader.

  • I have never seen such a congregation of idiots in one place. Trump is leading your economy head first into a recession and you're all oblivious to it.

    You've already lost the trade war with China because your president can't allow the stock market to take a hit.

    Manafacturing is contracting for the first time since 2009 and the bond yields have inverted three times in the last few weeks.
    The only thing driving you're economy is increasing private and federal debt which he coincidentally promised to reduce along with a boost to manafacturing and a reduction of the trade deficit (none of which have happened).

    And now just because he's made one deal you think your economy is thriving. A deal which he most likely made in a desperate to stop the stock market crashing tomorrow because of the way he has handled the trade war.

  • So a deal with the 3rd largest economy vs 2nd largest? Won’t that move them up to number 2? Or number one if we don’t stop this recession

  • Why doesn't the news ever give us any real information! You notice that they are talking about this big important trade deal, and how it's going to affect things. But they didn't give us not one detail of what is in it, or what it's all about!! So tired of the so called news!! They manage to talk and talk and talk, but never tell the people anything what so ever!!!! Pay attention people..

  • General Keane hit the nail on the head and hammered it home! His gimlet-eyed geopolitical insight and foresight and his brutally honest, unvarnished and hard-hitting talking style on the Chinese question are both necessary and admirable. As for the issue of China vis-a-vis United States and the whole free world at large, it boils down to two contrasting options: short term economic benefits and commercial conveniences inevitably coupled by long term national security menace and severe challenges to fundamental freedom, democracy and human rights on a global scale V.S. short term economic and commercial inconveniences, difficulties and setbacks which, once endured and overcome, will lead to eventual and lasting national security guarantee, economic healthiness and prosperity, and sustained global liberty, peace and stability. Which option do you choose, Americans? I choose with full confidence and conviction to endure and overcome the short term inconveniences and difficulties for a better, more just, healthier and safer tomorrow, a world freed of the monstrous, heinous and vicious tentacles of the predator and bully that is China in its current form.

  • the evill;;; rino msm demonkkkrat traitors allowed china to hack killerys national top secret emails !!lost 700bils $$$on trade and intellectual properties !!!!!they sold china ports and mill .s of acres of farm land !!!EVIL RINO MSM DEMONKKKRAT TRAITORS were payed bill. of $$$$ ~!!!!!~!! lock them all up on rikers island !!!!!!!!

  • How dare China do better economically after taking part in financial plans of the USA where China manufacturers cheaper for US companies while prices for products produced keep climbing making bigger profits. Shame on them. Maybe US companies aren't having China make products the US can turn around and sell back to them overpriced.

  • 1:50 – 2:08 , yupp. This is what i have been trying to tell people for so long. The US is accused of this all day long, but in actuality it's been major instability between THOSE Nations. Those are allies too, and nobody seems to care. It is not because they dont care, but I think they honestly dont understand what those type of numbers mean (the average citizen). China IS. THE. THREAT. to everyone in that region. Lol they love when they make other Nations citizens think North Korea I'd the larger threat. Typically that is western thinking, the people around CHINA know they are the bullies. North Korea is weakest of all countries, so much mental playing on all of us.

  • Once BREXIT happens we will have #1,3,5 economies on the planet in trade deals with Canada as well. EU will have no choice to stop the anti-American activist diplomacy. Iran or the biggest economies.

  • If Japan was smart, they would start investing more in their military. Between China, North Korea & Climate Change to Natural Disasters, they need to be better prepared for the new world we are entering. They need to be more nimble & more self sufficient

  • G7 you don't show him how stupid he is. He got schooled by the new PM of Britain. You cant show nothing theirs nothing to show Trump as a alfa meow….he talks like he knows nothing…….if Trump teamed up with euro allies trade war would've been over cause CHINA DOESNT NEED USA BUT THE DO NEED Europe.

  • morgana marvel says:

    Other admin not willing …..???

    What was TPP?? Toilet paper?
    Not to the (now valuable?) co-signing allies who were kneecapped.

    Maybe after doncon got hold of it & made fodder of everyone's
    hard work. Like Iran Nuke Deal! Come on. …. Other admin did zip?
    Really? How Pathetic.

    Tell it like it is. Not revisionism. Thank you 🙏

  • Kevin Bromseth says:

    America should have kept Japan, they would be much better off today. I doubt they will ever be a true democracy. The laws are antiquated and outdated. No bill of rights, and lots of corruption. They hide a lot of negative things too. Do you think 4 years in prison for shoplifting is humane?

  • This is an honest question (no sarcasm)… did Obama do stuff like this? I know he created Obama Care and such but I don’t remember things like this being accomplished when he was in office.

  • This deal strengthens Japan's position in it's growing dispute with South Korea. In fact, I think this is the main point of the deal from Japan's perspective.

  • Excuse me! It's the corporate assholes in america that are to blame for any economic opportunity that China has simply acted on.

  • Is a good idea or bad of idea? Like keep talking round the questions thus did nothing congrat trump for making deal and keep it moving

  • 20 hrs later and I can't find no other news media coverage of this. I've been looking to see what they were gonna spin this off to. But NOPE not a peep.

  • Well done President Trump – You had some strong Brexit Trade Deal discussions with PM Boris. Strong Trade Discussion with Australian PM … Then you and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe reach a Fantastic Trade Deal.

    In the meantime – Macron pooped into his Marxist pink underwear – Girly Justin was looking for his Musim Burka!!!

  • Trump basically threatened to add 25% tariff on Japanese auto and parts, unless they buy US agricultural surplus.
    Same tactics on our best ally… great negotiator

  • Best Toy Reviews says:

    Let's see some proof that China is aggressive militarily.
    I'm for fair trade, but the lie going on in Hong Kong is wrong, the protesters are wrong
    to continue to protest. HK did not pass the bill that would allow a Chinese criminal
    to be sent back to the mainland. The media and protesters have really spun this.
    The protesters have already gotten what they wanted.

  • America ..if you don't  want any of those democrats to win the presidency ..you better get off your rump and vote Trump>2O2O ….get registered people !

  • Let's be real. How is Japan's 130 million population's agricultural needs going to compare with China's 1.5 billion population's agricultural needs?
    This will benefit Japan more than it will benefit America. They use lots of Japanese cars. But no amount of US agricultural products Japan buys can equal what China buys. Not even a quarter of it.
