The coming rupture in the U.S.-China relationship will have tragic consequences

It didn’t have to end this way, but the die is now cast. After 48 years of painstaking progress, a major rupture of the U.S.-China relationship is at hand. This is a tragic outcome for both sides — and for the world.

From an unnecessary trade war to an increasingly desperate coronavirus war, two angry countries are trapped in a blame game with no easy way out.

A nationalistic American public is fed up with China. According to a new poll by the Pew Research Center, 66% of U.S. citizens now view China in an unfavorable light — six points worse than last summer and the highest negative reading since Pew introduced this question some 15 years ago. While this shift was more evident for Republicans, those older than 50, and college graduates, unfavorable sentiment among Democrats, younger cohorts, and the less educated also hit record highs.

An equally nationalistic Chinese public is also irate at the United States. That is not just because President Donald Trump insisted on dubbing a global pandemic the “Chinese virus.” It is also because whispers turned into shouts linking the outbreak of COVID-19 to alleged suspicious activities at the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory.

1. Let's hope that 5000 years of civilization

instills the patience required to wait until the November election. If we keep trump, what China does won't matter anyway.

2. Once again, "everything Trump touches, dies"

Well, except for the money laundering of our Nat'l Treasure. That part is a smashing success! 🤬

5. Yes they do.

 

China has been quietly buying out our Manufacturing and especially our Food Growing and Processing Companies for the last thirty years.

Their last Thirty year plan,which was agreed to last September time frame,mentioned Global Production and Natural Resource dominance. While our Politicians were playing how do I get reelected games,China had been playing how do we control the Market forces of the World.

6. I think we may very well have a 21st century "Who lost China?" debate after the next election

It was Republican fearmongering during the Truman administration that "lost" China (and Viet Nam, for that matter), and Republican fearmongering will again create an adversarial China that will be blamed on the Democrats.
