How Trump Should Deal with China

Summary:  As the Trump administration takes shape and prepares to take office, advice will pour in on how to manage security, trade, and economic relations with China, including how to deal with Taiwan. Striking the right tone would be a great start.
As the Trump administration takes shape and prepares to take office, advice will pour in on how to manage security, trade, and economic relations with China, including how to deal with Taiwan. Good advice will include maintaining healthy U.S. alliance relationships, adequate forward deployments, and a credible domestic economic reform agenda to stand up to growing Chinese pressure. All this will require coordination and consultation to be implemented effectively.
But more important will be the tone the new Trump team adopts. George W. Bush was initially confrontational, calling China a strategic competitor. That did not survive 9/11. Obama was solicitous of Chinese cooperation. He got an assertive China in his face. http://carnegieendowment.org/2016/12/12/how-trump-should-deal-with-china-pub-66418?mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiWVROak5HRTJNemxoWlRKaiIsInQiOiJpK2VrTVRWTTloMEYrYjhOc2R5bWlPWWVIK2NtVG1TaTc2XC9lRFZhdG85U0xXS0FwSzI0T0EwdEowZHM5NkNsem9VWERjN1dJWHhRUFduU1RyZ3M4U0xIb2FvbjRPMnRrV2Q0ckhwNnF5MDdDTjFEUVd0aHlcLytkZTE2alRGNTlkIn0%3D
