The Gift and Curse of China for the U.S.


After many years of searching internally, China is utilizing its muscles locally by building plane carrying warships, attesting its predominance over a large portion of the debated South China Sea and sending troops to another country. While the U.S. remains the world’s prevailing military and monetary power, China now is the world’s second-greatest economy and has the biggest military. Also, China won’t be overlooked.

The association with China “is the most imperative … for the following president to get right and will have the best outcomes in the event that they fail to understand the situation,” said Xenia Wickett of the British research organization Chatham House. President Xi Jinping, China’s most effective pioneer in decades, is sending Washington a solid message, which is that China has changed and old suppositions about worldwide power and American strength don’t hold any longer.

As a consequence of an emphatic Beijing, Trump should choose whether to keep disturbing Beijing by cruising plane carrying warships in waters China claims. Beijing’s readiness or unwillingness to limit North Korea’s atomic aspirations may incite some kind of response from Washington. Trump has not squandered time in rattling Beijing’s enclosure — that may indicate things to come.

On the battle field Trump talked intense on China, blamed it for “assaulting” the U.S. economy and debilitated to slap enormous taxes on Chinese imports. In the event that his future strategy can be judged by his choice on faculty, China will be worried that he has delegated Peter Navarro as leader of the new exchange body, the National Trade Council. Navarro is a candid pundit of China in his books “The Coming China Wars” and “Demise by China.”

In his first days as president-elect, Trump addressed the pioneer of a country China views as just a maverick area — Taiwan. Trump’s phone discussion with Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen on Dec. 3 was trailed by the remark that he didn’t feel “bound by a one-China approach,” which has ruled Washington-Beijing relations since President Richard Nixon’s organization.
