The Heat: China-U.S. relations

The Heat

Relations between the United States and China took a turn for the worse when former President Donald Trump was in office. He imposed trade tariffs on Chinese goods and sanctions on Chinese companies and blamed China for the coronavirus.

Foreign policy analysts expected an easing of tension under President Joe Biden. But that’s not what’s happened. Biden talks about competing with China and the country is viewed as a rival.

According to a recent poll by the Pew Research Center, 89% of Americans consider China a competitor or an enemy, and only 9% view it as a partner.

CGTN’s White House Correspondent, Nathan King, has more on that.
