“Trump has said some tough things about America’s alliance relationships around the world,” says Robert Kelly, who teaches international relations at South Korea’s Pusan University. “On the other hand, Trump’s also sort of wildly reversed himself. So there’s a lot of uncertainty about what he actually wants to do.”
“I’ll be honest and say I don’t think he really knows himself,” Kelly adds. “I don’t think he really knows a great deal or cares a great deal about foreign affairs.”

We get a great benefit too.
We get to put our military at strategic places around the world giving us presence, practice, and position to stop anything fast. If we are not there a situation could explode and it might be 10 times worse killing 10 times as many Americans by the time we scrambled whatever we needed from half way around the world.
Plus we get the benefit of increased relationships with these nations that we otherwise would not have.
Plus as the article notes some already are paying.
I see the only thing that would happen if we ever did anything so hair brained would be America loses on all fronts.
