Donald Trump’s huge military bill for South Korea prompts fears of a US pullback on the peninsula

The Trump administration is insisting South Korea accepts as much as a 50 per cent increase in what it pays for US military protection, including subsidising the nuclear-capable bombers stationed thousands of miles away on Guam. The dispute caused their cost-sharing deal to lapse on December 31 and, if it’s not renewed soon, South Korean civilian personnel will face furloughs like the ones that just ended in Washington.
