One year ago this week, the World Health Organization declared Covid-19 a pandemic. The spread of the virus and its impact on Americans’ lives has alerted the country, Democrats and Republicans alike, to the danger of the Chinese Communist Party and the importance of America’s China policy.
How will President Biden’s approach toward China differ from that of President Trump? What went wrong in the Trump-Xi Jinping relationship? And how did Xi mask Beijing’s Covid mishandlings? Josh Rogin joins the show to discuss his new book, the China threat, and the implications for US policy.
Josh Rogin is the author of “Chaos Under Heaven: Trump, Xi, and the Battle for the Twenty-First Century.” He is also a foreign policy and national security columnist for the Global Opinions section of the Washington Post and a political analyst with CNN.
