Chinese President Xi came to the summit with serious economic and political challenges domestically. President Trump was in a stronger negotiation position. So what happened?
On June 4, the world recalls the brave men and women who protested for a democratized China, whose continued human rights violations 30 years later prove that the fight is far from over.
Beijing has major risks to bear, too, if the trade squabble drags on for too long. Here’s why it would be in Xi’s best interest to reconcile with Trump.
China may well have been willing to give foreign companies wider access to its markets, but not to the extent of having those concessions codified into law.
Hong Kong has been, until now, one of the freest places in Asia. A new extradition bill, only the latest in Beijing’s demands, threatens that status.
Erdogan’s human rights record is far from spotless, but Turkey is right to pressure the Chinese government to stop persecuting Muslim minority groups.
2016 marked the end of a quarter-century of liberal utopia. Why are pundits still lamenting the old order instead of adjusting to new challenges?
China has enough bargaining chips to cement its spot as export king of the developing world. Trump must be strategic in trade negotiations with Xi Jinping.
In 2019, Sino-U.S. relations will be defined by the trade war, potential reunification with Taiwan, and the escalation of the new space race.
President Trump and President Xi are working to resolve potential tariff hikes. This doesn’t change the degree to which the U.S. feels threatened by a rising China.
China may be able to absorb the latest round of tariffs by turning goods destined for export around for internal consumption.
Chinese leaders are patient, methodical, and relentless. They won’t stop until they accomplish their strategic goal. The world should take note.
Ideas do have consequences, and the ideas of Karl Marx are the deadliest the world has ever known. So why are we celebrating this enabler of mass murder?
The mainstream media treats everything Trump does as one step away from the next apocalypse. But there’s no need to freak out about the so-called trade war.
Figuring out why so many Americans are turning to opioids for their pain and addiction is a lot more important than attempting to obliterate drug dealers.
Maybe Kim Jong-un is North Korea’s Mikhail Gorbachev. But given the total lack of evidence for such a radically new direction, this is vanishingly unlikely.
China feels it has significant leverage, and that ‘the emperor wears no clothes’ — that the West has no appetite to push back against its behavior.
