Donald Trump and his advisors have slammed Iran over its latest ballistic missile test:

Trump's strategic advisor Steve Bannon had last year publicly wondered about the likelihood of war between the US and China in the next 5 to 10 years:

Additionally, Trump's Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had said during his recent Senate confirmation hearings that the US would act to block China from access to its newly-built islands in the South China Sea.

“We’re going to have to send China a clear signal that, first, the island-building stops and, second, your access to those islands also is not going to be allowed,” Tillerson said.
