America's Balancing Act in Asia

Hosted by

After creating high expectations three years ago, President Obama is finally getting around to the so-called "pivot to Asia." Troubles with Congress, the Middle East and Ukraine have distracted attention from the region that's key to the future of the global economy. In the meantime, Japan, South Korea, the Philippines and other US allies are worried about the power of China, a country the US can't afford to antagonize. On this week's trip to four Asian countries, can the President clear up confusion about his military intentions and the prospect of a major trade agreement?
