As Washington and Beijing clash over trade and the COVID-19 pandemic, the relationship between the two superpowers continues to spiral into protectionism and political animosity. Over the last four years, competition has often replaced cooperation despite the significant linkages between both countries’ economies. How might rising tensions from each country’s response to the COVID-19 crisis affect important issues like trade negotiations? The Wall Street Journal’s Bob Davis and Lingling Wei join Council President Ivo Daalder to discuss how US-China relations have reached a tipping point and analyze where the battle could be headed in the future.
Copies of Bob Davis and Lingling Wei’s new book, Superpower Showdown How the Battle Between Trump and Xi Threatens a New Cold War, are available from the Book Cellar.
