WHAT WOULD A PRES­I­DENT TRUMP MEAN FOR NEW ZEALAND?

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - US ELECTION -

CLI­MATE CHANGE Don­ald Trump would not con­tinue Barack Obama’s ef­forts to curb global warm­ing. He’s on record as say­ing, “The con­cept of global warm­ing was cre­ated by and for the Chi­nese in or­der to make US man­u­fac­tur­ing non-com­pet­i­tive.” RE­GIONAL SE­CU­RITY Trump has said he wants to re­duce Amer­ica’s mil­i­tary pres­ence in the Asia-Pa­cific, which could em­bolden China to project its power in the re­gion more ag­gres­sively.

TRADE DEALS Trump is against trade deals, such as the Trans-Pa­cific Part­ner­ship, which the New Zealand gov­ern­ment signed in Fe­bru­ary this year.

ISIS Trump has promised to step up mil­i­tary op­er­a­tions against the group call­ing it­self Is­lamic State and would prob­a­bly ex­pect close al­lies, such as New Zealand, to step up their mil­i­tary com­mit­ment.
