President Trump and the president of China, Xi Jinping, meet Thursday for the first time at the president’s Mar-a-Lago resort. Near the top of the agenda are issues like trade and North Korea’s nuclear ambitions.
President Trump has said in recent days he expects this to be a “very difficult” discussion.
We analyze the agenda and the evolution of U.S. policy towards China with Daniel Drezner, a professor of international politics at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. Drezner is also a regular contributor to the Washington Post. He’s the author, most recently, of The Ideas Industry: How Pessimists, Partisans, and Plutocrats Are Transforming the Marketplace of Ideas.
