Donald Trump: good for Australia?07 November 2016 by News Desk
Donald Trump could be the next President of the USA, so what does it mean for Australia?
Donald Trump was recently described by Australians as arrogant, aggressive, erratic, narrow-minded and superficial.
Hillary Clinton, meanwhile, was described in the same poll as being intelligent, hardworking, capable, understanding of the problems facing America and good in a crisis.
Recent opinion polls conducted across Australia reveal that the majority of Aussies prefer Hilary Clinton to Donald Trump as the next US President.
The US election is important to Australia as the two countries are now moving ever-closer, especially militarily.
Australia is now a key strategic nation and will increasingly be a major player in world affairs due to its proximity to, and links with, China and the emerging economies of the Asian-Pacific region.

The US is committing billions of dollars to building its military presence in Darwin and Western Australia.
The ever-closer ties between America and Australia are set to boost the Aussie economy and create thousands of new jobs both directly and indirectly.
“Over the next 20 years links between Australia and the US will increase in size, scale and influence,” says Darrell Todd, founder of thinkingaustralia.
“America is shifting its focus away from Europe and the middle east and will increasingly seek to grow its influence in the southern hemisphere. Australia is set to be a major strategic player in the years to some”.
