China halts visas for Japan, South Korea in COVID-19 spat
"Tokyo and Seoul are protesting China's Visa stoppage amid an international COVID spat. Japan and South Korea have defended public health restrictions on travelers from China a day after Beijing stopped issuing new visas in apparent retaliation. Chinese embassies stopped issuing the new visas for the two countries on Tuesday. It wasn't clear whether Beijing would expand the suspensions to other countries that have imposed stricter virus testing on national passengers following its COVID-19 surge, according to South Korean officials, about 17% of the 2550 short term travelers from China from January 2 to Tuesday have tested positive.

"Real follow through or it could make chip and supply chain issues even worse going forward. China says it's retaliating against countries that require negative COVID tests from Chinese travelers. It is announced it was no longer be issuing visas in South Korea and Japan. It's his consulates in South Korea will help issuing will stop issuing short term visas for visits, business, tourism, and medical care transit and personal matters. Bloomberg Stephen engel says this could have a boomerang effect on China's travel industry itself. Limiting visas for South Koreans and Japanese to China could or will diminish China's hopes for an inbound tourism recovery. Guess who the two biggest inbound tourist demographics are South Koreans and Japanese, not only for tourism, that's pre-pandemic. Not only for tourism, but of course the South Korean and the Japanese have large manufacturing presence in China. Now the Chinese embassy in Seoul says it'd be adjusted if South Korea removes its inbound restrictive measures targeting China. And The Pentagon confirming that the U.S. is training of Ukrainian troops on patriot missiles will begin next week, Brigadier general pat Ryder says they need to be fully trained. The longer those troops are off the line, they're not actually engaged in combat. And so trying to work with the Ukrainians to see what we can do to accelerate the training timeline. That general writer says it looks as if there'll be more training sessions in the future as well. In San Francisco, I'm Ed Baxter, this is Bloomberg art back to Hong Kong, Brian. All righty, thank you very much, Brian Curtis and Bon Quinn, our guest is Harold van der Linde, a head of Asia equity strategy at HSBC. Harold, thank you very much for joining us here on the program. So just quickly looking over the notes, we know that valuations are low in Hong Kong and China and growth is recovering the country China in particular is reopening. So you like China, Hong Kong, Thailand, and India, so I'm thinking check, check, check and check. But cut Taiwan to underway. What? Okay, yeah. Hey, thanks for having me on your show. So your question is why being so cautious on Taiwan? Yeah, I suppose it may be obvious with semiconductors, but I'd love to hear your story. Yeah, no, I think one of the themes you could say in Asian equities is that the region is going to it is opening of China. It's going to help. We're going to see a rebound in demand across the region, economic growth is expected to accelerate it in China again. And that's going to filter through the rest of Asia. And that comes at the time when the expectations are the demands in the rest of the world is going to be weak. Europe and the U.S. is a bit of a debate how weak that will be. But it's not going to be the trend is very different than what it is in Asia. And you have countries or markets like Taiwan that are heavily export oriented. I mean, how many exporters are in the Taiwanese market? 75 to 80% of the market exporters of either tie tech products or non tech products from bicycles to curtains and stuff like that. So yeah, that's a market where yeah, I think you want to be careful with. And then Taiwan is also not one of the cheapest markets in the region. So we used that as a kind of a funding market to be in Hong Kong or in China or in the Thailand. And Harold, I suppose there's always the geopolitical risk with Taiwan as well as for the other Asian markets in particular Mainland China. Why so positive? How far more can we rally? Yeah, I think there are two factors at play here. We see the recovery in China. And we see that in the U.S., we are getting close to a interest rate cycle, the peak of an interest rate cycle. We're going to see how sticky inflation is going to be and interest rate is going to come down. But the market expects at least that those rates will start or at least the market rates are starting to come down, have already started to come down. In 2023. Now, if we go back a little bit in history to 2015, 16, where something very similar happened, China, sentiment in 2050 was really poor economic growth was weak. They had to stimulate that then came through in 2016. At that time, actually bond yields in the U.S. started to come a little bit down as well. And the Chinese market rallied 75%. That's over two years. Now that's, of course, a hell of a lot. But at that time, we had the Internet sector starting to emerge as a files growing sector in China. So we're going to take a little bit of agreement tool with that. But given was sentiment is given that a lot of funds are on the way to China and given the low valuations. I think China could be in for a pretty good year. In 2023. So both of these questions feed into another line, which I find interesting. And I thought maybe this was why you didn't favor Taiwan was that growth stocks, big tech, long duration names, they haven't fared very well of late. And it's probably been a bit disappointing to people who've gone that direction. So maybe that would hurt Taiwan, but it does feed into that question. I mean, is it still too early to go to long duration names? Yeah, no, long duration names are those are the stocks where most of the value lies in the future and therefore is very sensitive to what happens with interest rates. That's actually, I think, really a story for Hong Kong. That's where a lot of the Internet names are listed. So they would benefit from that. As one of the reasons why we like on Google, is it this the time to go into it, we really need to see a consistent decline in bond yields to come down. And for that, we need to see clearance on U.S. inflation. So that's really the story of that. But I think if you take a 12 month view, get you want to be you want to be into those long duration story. If you look at training on a, say, three to 6 month basis, then you're going to check those inflation numbers a little closer. But there will be one of the stories I think of 2023 as well. Harold, so far, the China story has mimicked the post pandemic U.S. story to a certain extend at least. Does it mimic that when it comes to inflation do you see any problem with inflation in China? No, I think that might turn out to be slightly different. So you're right

"Now hearing she will be meeting shortly with Taiwan's president Tsai ing Wen. The Chinese embassy in the U.S. says it's clear the U.S. doesn't want stability across the Taiwan straits Blackburn saying she quote will never kowtow to the Chinese Communist Party. A U.S. judge is giving the Justice Department until noon tomorrow to release that affidavit that was relied on to search former president Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate for classified documents. That document will be redacted though. It's not clear how much will actually be left in the affidavit after those redactions. Vladimir Putin is ramping up war efforts trying to boost the number of Russian troops by a 137,000 to more than 1.1 million total. I would be the highest level in a decade. And doctor Anthony Fauci says the COVID fight could end soon with COVID not eradicated but not disruptive to U.S. life for most if, enough people get vaccinated and boosted. A couple days 24 hours a day on Erdoğan Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than a 120 countries. In the newsroom I'm Denise Pellegrini. This is Bloomberg Juliet. Thank you so much, Denise. Let's get back to Maddy WAN head of markets corporate investment banking a pack at Wells Fargo joining us from Hong Kong. I wanted to pick up on one of the stories, Brian was talking about there with the securities journal in China reporting that making good use of local government special bond quota would help drive investment and economic growth towards the end of the year. What kind of a pickup could we see in Chinese growth if we're continuing to see the likes of a $146 million pumped into this economy? I actually see it will be a little bit of a limited event. I think we'll really build confidence through China market is really to see a clear clarity in terms of the serial COVID policies. As well as some of the really targeted measures to handle the property market situation and some of the leverage issues that's in China. So I would say that I think it would see limited impact to the overall China economic growth from here on that. How attractive is the tech space at the moment we saw Chinese stocks in the U.S. surge on those delisting talks and tech stocks in Hong Kong, having the best day in nearly four months, but this is a sector that has been battered very heavily being bad at since those highs we saw in early 2021. Yeah, okay, sorry. I don't have much comment on the text topic here, but on the China market on the China markets you're seeing, okay, a little bit of concern still. When we look at the, I guess, divergence between what you're seeing with stimulus from China and then of course this aggressive tightening from the fed. One of our reporters has said this creates potential Goldilocks scenario for a handful of exporter countries. I know you've been looking quite closely at the commodities space. Where do you see some

"Tomorrow to release that affidavit that was relied on to search former president Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate for classified documents. Now, the judge says the affidavit has to be redacted though and Bloomberg's Joe Matthew says that means don't expect to see much. Reinhardt had said at one point that they weren't sure that it was even worth releasing because the redactions could be so broad that we're going to be sitting down looking at a lot of blank pages. And that Bloomberg's Joe Matthew and Washington. A delegation led by Republican senator Marsha Blackburn is in Taiwan. She says she's there to send a message to Beijing that the U.S. won't be bullied and she says Taiwan is demonstrating strength and courage and she says a Communist Party advises a Chinese embassy in the U.S. not sounding too happy, though, saying Blackburn's visit proves the U.S. doesn't want to see stability across the Taiwan straits. The White House is defending the cost of President Biden's student loan forgiveness plan and press secretary Jean Pierre says it'll spark economic growth and pay for itself. If you think about the $50 billion that goes back into the treasury, when you think about the lowering the deficit that we have, which is historic. And Biden speaking tonight at a rally in Maryland, Jean Pierre says watch for the president to highlight how Democrats are helping American families. India is on alert because of a new virus variant being called tomato flu. It's named for the appearance of the blisters afflicting children, and it's a variant of these so called hand foot mouth disease, and doctor Anthony Fauci says he thought the COVID fight in the U.S. would be over by now. I thought after yet again another year, we would have COVID behind us. But as it turns out, that's not the case. And Fauci also tells Bloomberg balance power. He thinks we can effectively beat back the virus very soon if more people get vaccinated and boosted. Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than a 120 countries. In the newsroom, do these Pellegrini, this is Bloomberg, Brian? Denise, great. Thank you very much. The time here is 7 minutes past the hour. I mentioned our guest is Steve sosnik, chief strategist at interactive brokers. So Steve, we'll get to the fed in a moment. This has to be kind of frustrating for the bears, the overall action on a day like today, the market did have every excuse to sell off with the Salesforce news and Nvidia. Never mind Powell. But it didn't. I know it's just a day, but could it be more than that? Good morning, Brian. Yeah. I never want to rule out any alternatives. That's something that's a lesson I learned the hard way is be prepared for anything. Especially when you talk about a low volume late summer environment, one of the old sayings is don't short adult tape. And that's kind of what we had today. It's volumes have been very light. And people are mostly on the sidelines awaiting a momentous piece of news. So if people aren't selling, what's the logical move? Well, let's try buying. And that's, I think, what we saw today, despite the various stories that you saw that you mentioned, I'm sorry. All right. Well, looking at this also, Steve. As the old adage goes, go away, may come back on Labor Day, Labor Day just a week and a bit away. So is that when we get a return to volumes and the like because at the moment, of course, every move is kind of I suppose exaggerated given what's happening in terms of the number of people participating. Oh, yeah, Rashad. Absolutely. I would expect things to come back. Let's say Labor Day is the 5th called the 6th or 7th. We'll start to see people back at their deaths and trading away. The markets now are much more democratic. So it's not the same way they used to be in terms of everybody left and individuals didn't make up a big part. Individuals do take up do make a larger part, electronic algorithmic strategies that don't necessarily require as many people. But yes, you still don't, you still get those lighter volumes that lack of activity. But that brings I'm not going to say volatility because the market hasn't been all that volatile but it brings the possibility of sharp moves coming out of nowhere, which is one of which we saw late this afternoon. And we should remember we are still in a bear market. Perhaps until we get above the 200 day moving average, I think we've come back about almost half of what we gave up from last week. But I wanted to ask you about bullard because we're journalists. So we look between the lines on some of these things. He said, inflation could stay higher for longer. More than Wall Street or the market thinks. Now, the notion is one thing, but do people really want fed presidents openly talking about what the market should or should not be doing? Yes. Well, let's break that apart. To answer to answer the main trust your question, I don't think the markets want to be told by the fed governors what they should be thinking, particularly when that thinking sort of is at odds with what they want to happen. I think the market really wants the fed to blink. And at the slightest and as the slightest slightest opportunity that that could happen, we rally, which is what we saw after the FOMC meeting. So I don't think I don't think traders like being scolded or talked to in that manner. But obviously not too much because we're just going to do what we're going to do anyway. Yeah, this is it. I mean, it's got to the point where the markets are really nervous at the beginning of this week, or investors I should say. And then we've got closer to this speech. There seems to be going, well, it is what it is, and we'll carry on the way we are. So at the moment, what do you think of the most dominant to thing is after monetary policy for investors? I think monetary policies and first place, it's also in second place in third place. Ultimately, it does ultimately it does involve earnings. And we are going to come back to it. One of the reasons why we did bounce, let's say in the last month or two, was I'm not going to say great earnings, but good enough earnings. And ultimately, for equity investors, you have to have earnings. And it's a big thing and you've got to respect the price. Steve will continue in a moment, Steve sosnick, chief strategist at interactive brokers

Spear fishermen and pearl divers have been free diving for thousands of years. But a growing number of people are now doing it for sport. There are hundreds of competitions around the world with athletes testing their limits and good sense by diving as deeply as they can without scuba gear.

"To relief factor dot com, feel the difference. The Chinese government evidently thinks that it's very dangerous to be Chinese and living in America today. Why do I say this because the Chinese embassy in the United States is apparently issued a warning to Chinese citizens to quote pay close attention to that personal safety because the situation has become quote increasingly worrying. It may think what are they talking about? What's worrying? Well, turns out the Chinese embassy says that there's a lot of hatred against China in the United States and therefore Asians, Chinese in particular, but Asian Americans generally are facing quote malicious attacks. And this is compromising the safety of Chinese nationals and they mentioned international students and employees of Chinese funded institutions. Now, here I think I have a couple of things to say about it. One of them is the Chinese seem to be confusing the Communist Party and the Chinese government on the one hand, which Chinese people on the other. It's the government that we have a problem with. It's a government that's imposing centralized control. Now they're imposing centralized control on the Chinese people over there, and obviously Chinese people over here don't have anything. In most cases, directly to do with the government. One thing if they're here on some diplomatic mission or if they're a researcher and some American university and they're finally secrets back to China and not disclosing their affiliations with China on their research grant forms, I've talked about this on the podcast. When that's going on, yeah, I think we'd have a problem Americans would have a problem with that and rightly. So and some of that behavior is illegal in this country. Now, is there anti Asian sentiment in this country? Turns out the answer to that question is, yes, there is. But the interesting question is, where is it coming from and why? There has been a kind of disturbing spade of anti Asian violence, a number of cases, and many of these videos have appeared on social media, and you've got to look a little bit closely to see first of all that this is not some upsurge of generic, you know, American anger at the Chinese. It's not even the kind of old culprit white supremacy. This is, you know, an assertion of white supremacy. No. In almost every case, not all cases with the majority, you find that the assailants are black. And so this is a kind of inter ethnic problem and problem, by the way, that goes back at least to the 1980s, if not earlier. If you've seen movies like Spike Lee's do the right thing or barbershop, you get a feeling of what happens on the inner city. And what's happening in the inner city is you've got a lot of inner city blacks and they're there and they've been there and it's intergenerational poverty over there. And then along come these Asians and they often have to move into initially the poorest neighborhoods, but you know what, in a few years, at the most one generation, boom their children do well in school, they move out, they're living in the suburbs, now they have a nice house, now they have two cars, and a lot of times the inner city blacks are like, what the heck? Who are these guys? How are they doing this? They think that, well, are they getting foreign money as the U.S. government helping them in some way? So what you have is you've got these inter ethnic tensions that are playing out on the New York subway and other places. And then, of course, you've got systematic anti Asian discriminatory policies, and this is going on in American universities. Now it's not going on because it's going on really because the Asian Americans are overrepresented. I talked, I think, yesterday or the day before, about Thomas Jefferson, school in Virginia, where Asian Americans, it's a merit system. It's a school that emphasizes science and technology, Asians are 70% of the student body, based on merit, whites about 20%, Hispanics, like 3%, blacks, almost zero. One and a half percent or lower. And so the racial balancers on the left who are embarrassed by this result. They're embarrassed by the way not because the lights are the Asians are discriminating against anybody, but because they are outperforming everybody, particularly the Asians. And so the anti Asian sentiment here arises out of a desire to conceal the humiliation. That is being inflicted on all these other groups that aren't doing as well. It's kind of like the opposite of what's happening in the NFL, right? Blacks are what, 12, 13% of the population, what are they 80, 90% of all basketball players and probably 70% of all football players. So they're making the rest of us look bad. I mean, I look at these games when I go, right now, where's the Asian Indian on the court? I never see one. And why, again, it's not because Asian Indians are being discriminated against because Asian Indians don't really know how to put the ball in the basket. So that's the problem right there. So the Chinese, in a sense, with this communique, I don't know if they don't understand America, but if they're saying that there is some anti Asian sentiment, it's coming from the left, and it's really based upon the fact that the Asian Americans are, in fact, a successful group, and in being a successful group, not only are they making the other groups in a sense look bad and feel bad, they're discrediting this idea that you have to be white and preferably male and heterosexual to succeed in America that people of color are always at the bottom, their victims of discrimination, and the Asians are saying if the discrimination is so strong, how come we're.

"You so much for that update Doug Kristen Well we're getting a little lost with our next guest Andy Brandon Yeah because we just have so much He's fresh back from the Olympics Yeah we want to talk to him about that We also want to talk to him about China and Russia and that relationship because Andy wrote about it in his Saturday has a big Ukraine problem Bloomberg new economy editorial director Andy Brown he is here in our interactive broker studio Good to have you here Let's start with Ukraine and Russia First of all because I feel like every discussion we have Andy about the Russian invasion into Ukraine we bring up China and what the relationship is How do you see it So the way I see it from China's perspective is that right from the start China has miscalculated and blundered And it begins with this extraordinary meeting between Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin literally hours ahead of the Olympic opening ceremony And Putin gets he to sign up to this radical world changing agenda which essentially declares that that China and Russia have no limits to their relationship We've gone back to the sort of Sino Soviet pact of the early 50s And Putin hasn't mentioned apparently to see that he's about to invade Ukraine And so of course when he does it looks for all the world as though China is complicit or at the very least China has given Russia cover for this And in the interim China is arguing to the world and convincing itself apparently that there's no way that Russia could possibly invade Ukraine even though the U.S. is feeding China all kinds of high level intelligence which suggests that that is precisely what was about to happen So either way if they knew shame on China if they didn't know don't you understand the relationship with Russia right They kind of couldn't win They've been gained They gained They have been engaged China China has been game And then they got everything else wrong The embassy the Chinese embassy in Kyiv told Chinese citizens in the country to waive the Chinese flag out the window which would keep them safe not understanding of course that the Ukrainians took a pretty dim view of the fact that China wasn't prepared to condemn the invasion And in fact wasn't even prepared to call it an invasion So where does this leave China and Russia in relation to the war in Ukraine and to support that China has for Russia as well an ally Well for thought it blows apart all of China's most cherished foreign policy principles starting with the fact that the idea that state sovereignty is sacrosanct And it may actually be that the only way that China can extricate itself from this predicament that it's got itself into is to try to act now as some kind of a peacemaker And indeed we're starting to see China making more constructive statements How much does China need Russian oil and Russian energy access Well it certainly wants it certainly needs Russian oil and it needs it even more on these terms because we just saw today that Russia and China signed a big gas deal which will involve the construction of a gas pipeline through Mongolia And of course Russia is now so needy that any energy deal that the two sides sign are going to be very much on China's terms China may also get some good military technology out of this as well But at what cost at the cost potentially of blowing up relations with the United States and Europe where does this leave Russia as a country that was looking to have an ally in this Well very dependent far more dependent than ever On China China comes out of this looking very much like the senior partner and Russia is the junior associate even though it has to be said that Russian that Chinese influence on Russia when it comes to Ukraine is pretty limited Andy it's so tricky Like so I do wonder Russia continues to we don't know how this is going to play out But let's say it goes on a little bit longer it's just odd Does China though risk cutting itself off from the rest of the world or is the rest of the world man enough to cut itself off from China if China continues to have some kind of relationship with a very very tricky Russia and Vladimir Putin to the miscalculation in the blundering I think China was very surprised at the solidarity that the west showed in the face of naked Russian aggression I think it was shocked by the scope of the sanctions And now it's very worried that it's going to get caught up in secondary sanctions If it tries to throw Russia or lifeline part of the discussion last week included the status of Taiwan And what happens in the wake of Russia's invasion in Ukraine Bring us up to what's your read on that People will say that you hear people say things like that the Russian invasion of Ukraine is a warm up for Chinese invasion of Taiwan The situation is very very different China is not going to be pursuing a Taiwan strategy based on a Russian timeline militarily the situation is quite different Putin can roll his tanks across a land border Xi Jinping if he wants Taiwan has got to move armies across 90 miles of ocean And it's going to take over an island the size of the Netherlands has been digging in for the last 70 years It's economic suicide as well All right we'd be remiss 25 seconds sorry Olympics your takeaway You were over there reporting with NBC coverage just quickly Technically China pulled off a great gains.

"On the streets today I was talking to one single mother of two. She did say she had this conversation with her 14 year old son that is, okay, if you start to hear something or if something starts happening, here's the bag with all of our documents. Here's the bag with all of the cash. It was the bag with the non perishable food. You have to take this. You go to the bunker that's across the street in this church. Pick up your four year old sister. If we get separated, let's rendezvous following Wednesday at this park. Those are crazy conversations to have, right? That's Isabel cristin, she's a foreign correspondent for The Washington Post, and usually she's based in Moscow, but right now, she's on the ground in Ukraine's capital Kyiv. If you're in the U.S., you've definitely seen headlines about increasing conflict in Ukraine, as more than 100,000 Russian troops have been surrounding the country for weeks, seemingly, ready to invade at any point. Or maybe you've even seen TikTok videos of Russian tanks set to some strange, propaganda music. But while the west is looking at Ukraine as a potential war zone, kasuti and told us, things feel a little different on the ground. You know, a lot of the time I spend in Kyiv, things are pretty normal here. It's a nice European city. It's got some Berlin vibes. I would say really good restaurant scene. It doesn't feel like I'm reporting in what the world is looking at as a potential war zone. This has been kind of such a bizarre experience. Life here has been very much normal while at the same time the U.S. and other Western countries are seeing an invasion could happen at any time. I read the reporting in The Washington Post that comes from my colleagues in D.C. and I think, okay, I'm starting to get a little freaked out. And I understand where Ukrainians feel the same way. And then, you know, I go out here and everything feels like you're inside don't look up, you know? It really feels like I'm living the existence right now. Crash shooting and her colleagues have started to make plans in case of an invasion. And even though a lot of Ukrainians are doing the same, the general feeling in the population is, we've been here before. People have started to make preparations. I've talked to people who say, I've got go bag ready. If the invasion happens, I'm going to go to western Ukraine. But at the same time, those people have been left key yet where they haven't gone anywhere. Because they don't really fully believe it. You don't see a run on banks. You don't see any shortages at the grocery store. I mean, Americans panic bought more during COVID than Ukrainians are buying a lot of people say we've been living with the shadow of this for 8 years. For us Russian aggression is now a new thing, we are used to it. Perhaps no one feels that more than the Ukrainian military. And spent time embedded with Ukrainian soldiers in the Donbass region of the country, who have actually been fighting Russian aggression for years already. For Ukraine, you know, this is a country that's been at war for the past 8 years and considered itself still at war. With Russian backed separatists, Ukrainians consider those separatists to basically be Moscow's proxies. And for them, all this talk about a potential war with Russia is kind of a joke because they're currently at war and all they see is the reality in front of them every day. This war for the past 8 years has killed 14,000 Ukrainians. The bloodiest kind of phases of fighting are over, but it's still draining soldiers still die along that front line. And so the fact that something much more menacing could be on the horizon is not something they've totally started to even wrap their minds around because they're focused on their president enemy. This week, Russia claims it started withdrawing some troops from the Ukrainian border. But U.S. Secretary of State Anthony blinken and NATO officials aren't convinced that this is a sign of deescalation, and they believe they're still a major threat of invasion. While on the diplomatic front, talks between Russia and Western countries, including the U.S., Germany and France have continued. But it's hard to tell whether those meetings will actually diffuse tensions. So crochet and her colleagues are prepared for anything. Old times remain high alert times. There are other tea leaves people try to read like, okay, the Chinese embassy in Kyiv hasn't been evacuated and remains completely open. Russian China have pretty good relations.

"I'm Sam Sanders So I bet most of you have never heard of this movie called kunden It came out in 1997 and it's a biopic about the 14th Dalai Lama You must be a very high Llama a great Tibetan monk so this is a good thing Don't be scared You're not the first bite of a discovered like this And certainly not the past You know by many metrics this film should have been a big success The Dalai Lama was a celebrity in the 90s at least to other celebrities This film was directed by Martin Scorsese and it was produced by Disney You put all those ingredients together and you expect to hit But not so with kundan This movie made just under $6 million at the American box office It was a flap A major flop Why China executives at Disney were already looking at China as a growth market That is longtime friend of the show Eric Schwarzschild He covers the film industry for The Wall Street Journal They were saying to themselves you know eventually we might want to build a theme park over there We might want to release our big movies over there We might want to sell toys over there And they had all these grand plans that were completely waylaid by a phone call that one executive in Burbank got one afternoon from the Chinese embassy saying that they were very offended Eric says this Disney executive had no idea what was going on It turns out that the Chinese officials upon learning that this movie was being made about the Dalai Lama who they consider something of a state enemy was going to be an affront to national affairs and cause for them to suspend business with Disney at large Disney couldn't afford to lose China's business So naturally the company got Henry Kissinger involved I'm serious Disney had Henry Kissinger on retainer The former Secretary of State and national security adviser to president Richard Nixon He was helping them do what he did for president Nixon which is navigate China Disney proved more difficult I think So Kissinger comes up with this proposal for Chinese officials Saying look we've got this movie that is offensive to you but it will be far worse if we don't release it You know 'cause Hollywood will be up in arms because of the free speech issue you're going to look bad So why don't you let us release it but we will bury it And that's what they did It came out on Christmas It was released on four screens and.

"Yeah, I just want to be clear about the power imbalance here, Sam, like the IOC geopolitical actor deciding which country to award these games to, like, they have all of this influence. The athletes themselves, though, I mean, it's stark, how brief their entire life in the sport that they've been training for can be. I think that's a really fair point, Pablo, and I think it's really well put by you because you're a 100% right. This is their job. The IOC, this is their job, their job is to navigate these waters to figure out a place for these Olympics to be held. That's their job. The athlete's job is to compete. Wherever the competition is held, their job is to compete. That's what they're there to do. And so the idea that the power should shift to them really in a lot of ways is crazy when you think about it. You know, these are professional sports executives who are essentially saying, no, no, we can't do anything, and yet then the expectation shifts onto amateur athletes who are all of a sudden supposed to stand up and do the right thing. But Sam, let's say they go to the games. These athletes do, and they find themselves still pretty understandably uncomfortable with all of these circumstances. What recourse do they have in terms of protests, let's say, when they get to China? Yeah, I mean, Pablo, the athlete experience in Beijing is going to be like nothing in Olympic athletes experience before. And obviously, look, part of that is the pandemic and we saw that in Tokyo at the Summer Olympics and it's going to be even more intense in Beijing in terms of protocols than the other part of it is very much about these games being in China. A lot of athletes have been cautioned not to bring their personal cell phones to China because all of the information and security associated with sort of like digital privacy can't be guaranteed by anybody. So officials and athletes, they have to be cautious about what information they're bringing with them that relates to their own personal data. And I think, unfortunately, the guidance that most athletes have received from human rights groups or from national associations is to keep quiet and that's because we've literally heard Chinese officials say, look, if you're in our country, we are going to enforce our laws. Yang Shu. He's the deputy director general of the Beijing, organizing committees, international relations department. He literally invoked the Olympic spirit when he was giving a briefing at the Chinese embassy and essentially threatening athletes who choose to speak out. He said, any behavior or speeches that are against the Olympic spirit, especially against Chinese laws and regulations, are subject to certain punishment. And he said that that punishment could include being thrown out of the Olympics, or even arrested. And so you have this situation where human rights officials are saying to athletes look, we understand you might want to say something, but you should speak when you can and when you can probably means when you get home. I wonder just like if you're an athlete, I imagine that some part of you might feel resentful towards the IOC for putting you in a position where this is the Olympics that you get. I don't think there's any question. I think that, you know, in talking to some athletes, very few, if any who would want to go on the record, there is that element for sure. The idea that you're an athlete and you're going to these games and because of the pandemic, your family can't come, but you can't even bring your own phone. You can't even post or whatever without some fear of a Chinese hack like the whole experience is just very different than what anybody would have imagined. And I think you're a 100% right that there is definitely some element of resentment towards the IOC for having created this circumstance where all of these things are happening. The Olympics is just really hard. And it feels like it's getting harder every time. You know, if you're able to like step back and sort of look at it from a 30,000 foot view, it feels a little bit absurd, honestly, right? And look, Pablo, we do this a lot in sports, right? We do this with concussions and football. We do this with steroids or performance enhancing drugs in baseball or other sports. Like, we do this a lot. We have to do this if we want to have any kind of positive feeling about these things, these sports that we love so much. I just think that when you talk about this particular Olympics, the most difficult, global event to navigate from an emotional perspective that I think any sports fan has ever experienced. Sam, I want to root for these athletes. I want to watch them and at the same time, I want to be very clear about what's actually happening here. So thank you as always for giving us a reality check. Thanks very much, Pablo. Appreciate it. I'm Pablo Toure. This has been ESPN daily.

Several More Coup Protesters Killed in Myanmar
"In Myanmar. The military junta has declared martial law in parts of Yangon, the country's largest city. Now the move follows one of the most lethal crackdowns by security forces against protesters since February, 1st when the military seized control of the government. Local media say nearly 40 people were killed Sunday. Now, despite this protesters were out on the streets again Today reporter Michael Sullivan joins us now from neighboring Thailand. Michael the government seems very motivated on putting an end to these demonstrations. What's the latest? They are motivated. But there were more demonstrations again today as you mentioned in Yangon in Myanmar, second city, Mandalay and elsewhere, and there are reports of more protesters killed by security forces again today as well This after yesterday's violence, the younguns suburb of linked our yard where security forces used live ammunition against protesters, killing dozens. And where several Chinese owned or managed factories were set on fire. It's not clear by whom, though state run media claims protesters prevented firefighters from reaching some of those factories, the Chinese Embassy said. Several of its citizens were injured in those fires and ask the military to protect Chinese property and its citizens, and the Hunter has responded by declaring martial law in length Dario and five other townships. Do we know why those factories were set on fire? No, there is this perception shared by many in Myanmar. I think that China has been largely supportive of the coup makers and hasn't really called out the military for seizing power is the U. S. And Great Britain and others have done And that's really frustrating. Too many Indian mark trying to get this cool overturned and this anti Chinese feeling is real enough that after these fires, according to Reuters, Hi.

Still no word, though, from depose civilian leader on son Souci since her arrest of February 1st up it's Saturday, a high ranking official member of her party, the National League for Democracy, urged protesters You continue to resist, Michael, is this having any effect? It doesn't seem to be. I mean, the party's acting vice president has been in hiding along with many other NLD leaders, and he surfaced on video on Saturday, calling this the darkest moment for the nation and urged the NLD supporters and Myanmar's ethnic minority groups, some of whom have armed wings who've been fighting against the military for decades. Come together and continue what he called this revolution. But the speech doesn't seem to have gotten much traction among the protesters or the ethnic minority groups and the demonstrators don't need any more encouragement there Disobedience movement and a general strike.

Hong Kong media tycoon Jimmy Lai charged under security law
"Citizens, Jimmy Lai. Lai. Has Has been been charged charged with with endangering endangering Chinese Chinese national national security. security. The The businessman businessman and and media media million million billionaire billionaire who's who's in in prison prison in in Hong Hong Kong Kong at at the the moment, moment, is is the the most most high high profile person to be charged under sweeping new law covering conspiring with foreign forces. And carrying a maximum life sentence. Antony DAP. Iran is a lawyer and writer in Hong Kong who spells out what these charges against Mr Lai mean for the direction of Chinese rule in Hong Kong. He's being charged with colluding with foreign forces under the National security law. It's very significant given that Jimmy Lai is such a high profile figure among of the pro democracy parties in Hong Kong. But it's not surprising. It's always expected that he would be one of the key targets under the law after it was introduced. What sorts of things has, he said about Beijing that have obviously cause such a fence. Well, he has bean very public in calling for sanctions to be imposed on both the Hong Kong and Chinese governments in retaliation for their actions here in Hong Kong, and that is specifically under the law constitute the the act of colluding with foreign forces. And so that's the the the actions that we expect that has got him into trouble This time. It's quite a sweeping law, isn't it? And he's not the first to fall foul of it. That's right. It is a very broad law drafted in such a wide way that it can catch all sorts of act. Devotees are so far there have been four people arrested and charged under the law. None of those cases have yet worked their way through the court system. So we don't yet know how Hongkong's judges are going to define the parameters off this law, but it's certainly potentially could be very broad. Reaching indeed. Can you tell us about the case of a teenage activist called Tony Cheung? Yes, Tony chill has been charged under the National security law for inciting succession and subversion. And this is in relation to social media posts that he's alleged to have made with messages of diligently promoting Hong Kong independence or subverting the government. He's also being charged with it with a number of other offenses, including just today he was convicted off. Desecrating the national flag for snatching a Chinese flag off a pro Beijing demonstrator at a protest. He's also facing other charges resulting from his various protest activities. How successful a warning shot Against other protesters. Do you think that these actions are, it's certainly likely to be very intimidating to other protesters and and pro democracy activists in Hong Kong. This is all part of a much broader campaign by the authorities here to crack down on all forms of dissent, and that has included, of course, arrests under the National Security law and under other Hong Kong laws. It's also included the disqualification of legislators the intimidation of the media a crackdown on the education system. All of this really designed to silence any form of dissent here in Hong Kong, and it certainly is having an effect in terms of intimidating people. I think you've described what's going on in Hong Kong in the moment as CAFTA esque. Maybe you could explain what you mean for those who might not be familiar with the works of France, CAFTA Yes. I mean, what we're seeing in Hong Kong isn't often arbitrary Use off state power or the use of the state and the Lauren and I about predictable and inconsistent ways. And you really see it in the way that the government challenges these pro democracy activists and protesters with all sorts of legal charges, often it being unclear exactly what the behavior is that they're being charged with. So I think for many of the pro democracy community here, it feels a little like they are lost in a sort of Casca narrative, not Quite sure when the Lord is going to to swept upon them. Clearly, Beijing thinks it can do things like charge. Businessman Jimmy Lie with impunity is that the case is standing up for Hong Kong falling down the list of priorities for Western governments. It certainly seems that even if Western governments are inclined to take action, this little action they can take that is likely to have any impact on the Chinese government. And we've seen that with sanctions that the United States has a Lied to both Hong Kong and Beijing government leaders. They seem to have have reacted really with defiance. I'm haven't changed their policies or approaches in Hong Kong. It all have been very dismissive of the sanctions and the impact that they've been having all these leaders. And so even these sorts of very assertive actions are not able to sort of change. Attack that the Chinese government is taking here. I'm not sure what else will and so I think that China certainly regards any action by foreign government as an interference in China's internal affairs, and they've given every indication they don't intend to be influenced by that. Antony Dappy ran in Hong Kong. Meanwhile, a reporter working for the American news agency Bloomberg has been detained by the authorities in China. Hayes fan who's a Chinese national hasn't been in contact with her employers for four days now. Robin Brent is the BBC's correspondent in Shanghai and asked him what more we knew about her detention. Well, the truth is not much or we have is the details coming from the American news agency Bloomberg, which were released late today, on Friday, China Time Now they say they last heard from her in a conversation with her editors before lunch on Monday. They haven't heard from her since. But shortly after that conversation, she was seen being escorted from her apartment in Beijing by blankly. Those police officers and in the intervening four days, Bloomberg say they've been in touch with the government here. They've been in touch with the Chinese Embassy in the United States because hes Fanny's a Chinese national on itwas on Thursday when they discovered confirmation that she had been detained. She had been taken and she was being questioned in relation to allegations off breaching national security and the Chinese authorities have recent form. Don't they were foreign journalists are concerned Australian journalists flown out of China recently. American journalists not having their press cards renewed. Yes, I mean, you know, we could have ah, much more longer and detailed conversation about whether that how this fits in with the diplomatic hostilities between the United States and China. Between China on Australia and the Chinese government's use of its very ambiguous national security law to target people to target journalists for things other than genuine allegations off breaching the law, But look a Chinese born Australian journalists Chen Lei, who worked for the state run TV CT TN station, She was detained several months ago in similar circumstances. She hasn't been seen since. Details about her fate have not been forthcoming. There is some continuation that this may be linked to that, but we just don't know the evacuation as it was off to journalists. Australian journalists a couple of months ago linked to Chang Le's detention Pretty much ended Australia's ability to report from this country. Certainly when it comes to TV, anyway. Yesterday as well was the two year anniversary to the day off the detention on Don't going detention off two Canadians Michael Coverage of Michael's favor. One of businessmen want a former diplomat, two men who were detained by China in China. In the days following the arrest of a very high profile Kuala Way telecom company executive in Canada. So look, it's seen on used frankly, by the Chinese as a tool is a tactic off diplomacy, but I have to say We don't know any details about Hayes fans detention why she's being detained how she was detained where she's being detained because the Chinese authorities are not saying so. They're simply confirming that they have her. What does it say, though about the state of Open reporting in China, particularly by foreign nationals, the foreign correspondent's Club of China Says. It's very alarmed, for instance. Yeah, but it's hard here. It's hard for foreign nationals that believe me. It's even harder for Chinese nationals. Hayes fan is a Chinese national. She's an experienced journalist she's working for Bloomberg. Last three years, but other organizations before that, and she is what's known as a news assistant here. Chinese nationals aren't allowed to be employed to do what I do to report you know, prominently in newspapers or on camera or on the radio. They can only be employed his news assistance. But that is a huge understatement of what they do. I have a Chinese colleague who is my new system and she is absolutely vital to our operation here in Shanghai. That was Robin Brent, who's the BBC's correspondent in Shanghai.
Between The Lines
How to move forward with China
"To fourteen point list of grievances via the australian media. Second wine joined beef. Bali timber lobster call among our exports that the chinese communist party has imposed tariffs on. And then that tweet. This is the tweet of the posting of a digitally altered of an australian soldier about to slit the throat of an afghan child. The chinese embassy issuing a bellicose statement the rage in roar of some ustralian politicians and media was misreading and reaction. It said to deflect public attention from the horrible atrocities by sickness soldiers and to blame china for the worsening of bilateral ties. So what's going on. He and asha camera respond. Jeff rabi is a former australian ambassador to the people's republic of china and he's author of china's grand strategy and australia's feature in the new global order. That's just been published and it's available in all good bookstores jeff. Welcome back to the show so some great to be back now. I your thoughts about beijing's response to australia in recent weeks so we have that list of the foreign complaints the wind terrace and of course that tweet while a say i up disappointing to see the slights that have been made After the two quite constructive comments at the triumph prime minister a last week quite clearly. The prime minister was Diplomatically signaling That there was a strong wish to start a process of getting back to some sort of more normal relationship between the two countries the product make though it sounds dramatic when you run those three things together the way you have done that certainly not the same thing. And i'm not sure that they're all necessarily coordinated. I mean the fourteen points clearly seems to be freelancing by the embassy on matters that well known and in the public record in any case at a very odd way of putting something out if you leak it to a channel nine television crew that seems to be pretty casual behavior by the embassy then the tariff spo there has been a processing trained for months on the wind tariffs and i do understand that that was the normal process and the strain companies were busily making written submissions as part of that process. And then the tweet The present time it sounds like it's been contrived by the chinese foreign ministry as individual action. it was a tweet that was particularly widely on social media by a now nationalist artist and twitter and the foreign ministry spokesperson on his private twitter account. Pinder to name and so it's philippine. Middle level action doesn't really look to millions of any of these really coordinated broad cross section of the australian people just looking at the y. People who've responded this week is there is outrage and surely win china. does things like. This doesn't make it harder for people like you because you've been an eminent company on this issue for several years now. Hugh watt a bobcar. Pass gas on this program. Of course the former prime minister paul keating. Doesn't it make it hot. A all of you to make the case that al leaders should try to rebuild trust with such a regime yet. I can understand the public outrage especially the media is going into overdrive steer and just as you have said running all these things together as a coordinated action from the state It does make it harder to get sensible constructive discussion going a story about how we deal with these things. I like to find myself in such august company as you outlined. And you might add gareth evans. Many others that to the group as well but it certainly history doesn't help and it's difficult context in which to conduct foreign policy. What we're seeing is what is like to live in the situation with china relationships In a very poor state now. Other people in camera that i see welcome this their peopling camera who have the view that bad relations with china are inevitable. This is the new normal. We should get used to it and lupus it while the questioning myself. And the august company you've being linking me with. Is this the best interest of australia. And it also basic question. Your what has australia down to bring on china's in this way why you think china is picking on again. Picking on is quite pejorative. They're not doing this to other states. Our other key point. And i would phrase that differently tom i would say how is it that astray amongst like minded friends and allies other liberal democracies in the world in the region why's at the trial has become an outlaw and i think that really needs to be part of the public discussion. Isn't the reason. The australia is so over exposed to chinese pressure in beijing. Nosy so the chinese leaders going to inflict pain on australia whenever they can't australia. And not the other like minded way boy more. In other countries we ought to forty percent of our exports to china. No other country has that kind of exposure. I prefer countries in the region. China is by far the largest trading power. I mean that exposure would be the same for korea south korea which is liberal democracy in the region. it would be near that level. For nearly all the countries in the east asian region china is the dominant economic patna of all of the countries in the region and that is just a fact at its reflects. The extent to which china has grown as the dominant economic power in east asia. Alexander downer. The former. Foreign minister says that now's the time to reduce our exposure to china. But what everyone is saying. There's nothing new novel in that. And obviously when people start to realize that we are going to have for a long time a difficult and challenging relationship with china's manage. That's a fairly obvious. Point to make interesting from In addition to being former minister former director of the board of while clay. And very active Proponent in boosting. Australia china trade relations phrase time as soon as minister and i work very closely with him in that and i think we achieved a lot. So why wouldn't you wanna diversify every sensible business. Every sensible company diversifies the port made over and over again on this aspect is that it's going to be very hard. Because of the absolute scale and growth and prosperity of china. You are a foreign policy realist. All gripe house ruthless and that includes chana hardball at every turn and the stronger. China gets the more likely to throw its wide around now to the extent. These realist analysis is correct. How on earth do we solve. this problem. absolutely correct agree with all those points. Another point that needs to be made. And you don't make it much tom. And your pride yourself as being a realist and that is the relationship is asymmetrical that is effect. We need china. More than china needs us. This is not a comfortable place for us to be but it's a place we are. It's a place where we're stack and will remain and so We need to work out how to manage that relationship and we haven't done a particularly good job of a judging by the state rewritten today. So although you express yourself in a different way you essentially gray with the foreign policy realists professor join me shauna regular guest on this program and he argues that his china's power increases its definition of its national interests will grow and then beijing will seek a survey influence in areas on which its future security and prosperity dependent in response. The us will go to great lengths to stop china's rises. It essentially. your argument is well up a poet. I'm a great Admire of joint mish as well. I differ with him on a couple of points but his analysis and arguments have been hugely influential in helping me shape my thinking about these But i put on sphere of influence is. I think that's already happened. I think china is the dominant paranagua this at length in my book in eurasia from the east china sea to also china is the dominant parent. That's happened largely because sanctions against russia poor economic performance by russia Pushback from from europe against russia has meant that brushes had to cede to china's ascendancy in eurasia and so very part of the world. And i think we now live in a world of michigan talks about a world of two great powers with boundary orders and in the question then becomes is some equilibrium at stable between the two. And i believe there is.
Chinese Ambassador Liu Xiaoming ‘Likes’ an X-Rated Video
"The twitter account belonging to Liu Xiaoming China's ambassador to the United Kingdom was apparently hijacked earlier this week, the BBC reports. Mr. Lose Account displayed likes that included tweets highly critical of Beijing's repressive policies towards several of its domestic groups and regions. The false tweets also linked to what we must call for Seo reasons, and also because we're a family show saucy adult content video. None of this has figured an ambassador lose social media presence. So the claim that his account was hijacked seems pretty clearly to be true. China's embassy in London yesterday denounced the hijacking they called it the work of anti-china elements and called for twitter to investigate. The embassy tweeted quote recently some anti-china. Viciously attacked Ambassador Lucia means twitter account and employed despicable methods to deceive the public. The Chinese Embassy strongly condemns such abominable behaviour and quote a follow on tweet said sounding a bit like a shadow broker bucking for employee of the month quote the embassy has reported to this twitter company and urged the latter to make thorough investigations and handle this matter. seriously the embassy reserves the right to take further actions and hope that the public will not believe or spread such rumor and quote. Some of the tweets, Mr Liu was representatives. Liking were straightforward political attacks on Beijing's record with respect to the repression of. Hong Kong Tibetans and so on. The tweeted responses to the embassies denials harrumphing calling for redress of grievances tended to be at least literally sympathetic offering support for Mr, Lose leisure-time appreciation of adult content evidently something to do with feet it seems. They urged the ambassador to own it and not to feel pressure to deny a hobby that some of the tweets implied they themselves might be given to enjoy. On twitter did express concern looking at adult foot content may be fine as an avocation but doing so on government time with government equipment is problematic to say the least and should be looked into by HR or. Somebody.

Trump: 'Ahead of schedule' on China trade deal
"President trump is in Chicago meeting with police chiefs today but on his way he told reporters that things are looking up for US China trade deal we're about I would say a little bit ahead of schedule maybe a lot ahead of schedule probably will sign it still this is Ian Bremmer he's founder and president of the Eurasia group so we're ahead of schedule it says Ian do we believe him in the sense that he's moving quickly to something he can announce sure we believe them in the sense that it's an actual deal that will bring the country's closer together on trade or technology or Hong Kong or South China Sea the answer is no the the Chinese recognize that the United States and from a particular under much more pressure than they were a few months ago given the economy softening given elections coming up and giving the growing impact of the trade war they're prepared to wait this guy out so what they have on offer is really exactly where they were several months ago it's buying limited amount of American AG in return for no escalation of of further terrorist and I don't think we are much more than that why would the Chinese be willing to wait and see what's behind door number two given what some of the democratic candidates for president and saying I haven't heard a lot of warm noises about China coming out any no that's true but they they do feel that trump is not to be trusted they feel them she is Jim paying has felt that he's given away a fair amount of political capital try to get a deal done particularly the Osaka G. twenty meeting this summer and it didn't work out for him and secondarily the fact that they don't believe that trump has a lot of ammunition left so it doesn't hurt the Chinese to play a waiting game it doesn't mean that the next president whether it's trump or whether it's a damn is going to be easy to work with but they do hope that they'll be more regularized more normalized relationship between the two and that's something the Chinese to prepare to wait on so we've been really consumed with things from all but Daddy's death in the raid to what's going on Argentine things like that so this may have missed the fact that China is having a little bit of a meeting right now going on the most import they have of the year the plan is going on how does present she go into that meeting what is his political support as it were with his own teeth between team I would say it looks like of the not very controversial I mean although a lot of people that are saying oh my god the Chinese economy is slowing that means we should expect to see big noises to see them stimulate the economy more insure this growth redouble efforts to expand employment they're not doing that they they feel comfortable going below six percent growth they feel comfortable with their present levels of corporate debt the allowing of some small number of organizations to go bankrupt but in a very regularized way this is not a country that feels like it is in any way in crisis mode if what what they're doing I would say is simply making sure that there's a conversation between those that want to have a harder line directly towards the Americans and those that want to see more reconciliation but this is not the kind of schism we've seen historically towards is it reform or is it you know retrenchment of state capitals in the torture an ism Shizhen pains way which is we're not politically reforming and by the way we're going to go our own way one technology it won't be aligned with the Americans we have our own way on architecture won't be alone with Americans that is a consolidated consensus view in China right now we will see that coming out of this planet part of president she's way which differs from the way of his predecessors really has been being much more bold in his language about the role of China in the world for many years we heard old we're not that big a country and yes this is a big prison she has a very different approach to were reports that some people with his own party were very concerned about that thought he'd gone too far too fast yeah I mean I like I remember when I was speaking at the Chinese embassy to the entire staff with the ambassador there in Washington and I was making the point that I thought your respective of what the Chinese government was doing on artificial intelligence that Shizhen pangs effort to say that we will lead the world by twenty thirty was a bad idea that that just P. R. perspective like why would you suddenly want that target on your back and get all these other countries including Americans focused on the fact that we've got a nascent real competitor that wants to knock us off in China and the funny thing was in that group and they were you know a hundred hundred fifty people there there were people actively I mean permanent staffers high level staffers of the Chinese foreign office vigorously nodding with that take so that there is a disagreement internally on how much the Chinese want to be assertive around this new found power in in in an environment where there's more of a power vacuum with Americans don't want to do as much when no one else is capable do the Chinese want to step up or do they want to still say no we're not ready for leadership we're still poor I think that the patriotism that she's in pain has been ginning up that we were a leading global economy until the nineteenth century the west took us over for a hundred fifty years and now it's our time again it works on the streets but it makes a lot of the leads in China deeply uncomfortable this is a president trump has been drawing back in various parts around the world and he's been very sort of a China when it comes to trade but he's made no secret the fact he doesn't want our troops in as many places doesn't wanna be asserting ourselves and say does that leave something of vacuum were encouraged prison G. in his direction well a bomb is done the same when we talk about how much Obama wanted a footprint in the Middle East and he was the guy that did the pivot to Asia didn't work out very well he's the guy that said I want to you know will surge in Afghanistan but we want the troops out we want to end the war in Iraq I think the thing that trump ads on top of that is his assertive indifference to long term American alliances and architecture that he believes those relationships are transactional and that provides a lot more space for the Chinese where they say you see this is the way it works you can't trust the Americans more than you can trust us all countries come out this only in terms of they're more limited national interest that provides more space for the Chinese to operate and it allows it makes other countries hard pressed not to hedge away from the Arab Americans in towards the Chinese who of course are writing the very big checks prison truck needs to get reelected next year he wanted very badly to what extent will he trim his sails and declare victory in retreat and what comes to US China trade he's already doing it I think that if you look at the and now instrument that he made a couple of weeks ago that you know fees a of the D. O. was already there when there was no such thing there was nothing sign comes because he feels a level of urgency why did he suddenly want to pull out the troops in Syria with such urgency what's he doing with the north Koreans looking for a third you know summit all around the world that's what you see from the president
