U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald speaks at a fundraising event where he appeared with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie in LawrencevilleBy Simon Cameron-Moore SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Donald Trump’s “isolationist” foreign policy pronouncements are feeding insecurity in some Asian nations fearful of China’s growing power, and risk emboldening nationalists and authoritarians in the region. Overall, his comments have sounded like a death knell for the “pivot to Asia” strategy adopted by President Barack Obama five years ago.
