“There’s “a lot of nervousness” in the entire Asia-Pacific region ahead of U.S. president-elect Donald Trump‘s inauguration later in the global day, said former U.S. ambassador to China, Gary Locke.
Speaking to CNBC’s Squawk Box, Locke said the region—including nemesis China—was waiting to see exactly what the new administration would do amid Trump’s tough talk on trade.
“A lot of people are simply waiting,” he added. Locke was ambassador to China from 2011 to 2014 in the Obama administration.”
