Donald Trump’s amateur attempt in Foreign Affairs has left things in a mess with China….Trump’s trade war ?…Trump’s relationship with the China leadership…
While America is dealing with a pandemic and failing economy?
China has risen from the pandemic and its economy is on the way up…..

On global issues such as climate, it is difficult to make progress if the world’s two largest economies aren’t talking.
The Chinese government expressed hope Thursday that Biden would return to dialogue and cooperation after the divisiveness under Trump.
“It is normal for China and the United States to have some differences,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said. “Countries with different social systems, cultural backgrounds and ideologies should and can coexist … and work together to achieve peace and stability and development in the world.”
