U.S.-China Relations

Since Donald Trump’s election victory,  relations between the U.S. and China have been strained. During the election campaign Trump had heavily criticized China and its export-orientated economy. He repeatedly pledged to protect American workers from what he called  “unfair competition”. Politically, Trump’s ambivalent stance on the One China policy has created tensions. How w the U.S. will position itself in the territorial disputes in  the South China Sea is also  hard to predict.
