The long American policy of trying to shape China into a nation that follows the rules of the global system and eventually democratizes is thus the 1990s. In the 21st century, under President Xi Jinping, China has found itself on a historic mission to prove that its system of centralized authoritarian control linked to the energy economy can best lead the Western order.
After Xi collapsed over a US-China trade deal, Trump now appears difficult: He recently closed the Chinese consulate in Houston, accused him of operating an extensive spy network on American soil and made Beijing a scapegoat. he did not understand his own coronavirus. And people in the orbit of Biden̵
7;s foreign policy seem to agree with the tough secretary of state of the current government, Mike Pompeo, who was not fulfilled by the principle of engagement, which has long emphasized US-China relations. The former vice president’s campaign website promises to focus on “countries like China” in its plan to revive supply chains in the United States and to revive American industry.
The Biden presidency could be more successful than Trump in gaining allies in Europe and Asia as a counterweight to Chinese power. However, Democrats hope to erase the memories of Biden, who is seeking a mentoring role with the coming years Xi, and his senatorial vote votes on China’s accession to the WTO – a step that overestimated its economic growth.
Anyone who wins in November, politics points to a president who will be tough in China.
Relations between the United States and China continue to decline every 72 hours, and this is beginning to appear. The U.S. consulate in the western Chinese city of Chengdu closed on Monday when Beijing ordered employees to speak within three days – in retaliation for Washington’s closure of the Chinese consulate last week. Thirty-five years after then-Vice President George HW Bush inaugurated the Chengdu Consulate, a worker on Sunday removed the plaque under the watchful eye of a police officer.
