There will be no phase two of trade negotiations.Saying "We have very difficult issues that lie ahead,” is a reflection of reality, even Chinese analyst say that Phase Two is more difficult to negotiate than Phase One.
While I agree with the general sentiment that both Democrats/Republicans are imperialists and want to continue world hegemony, it's disingenous to equate them as continuation of Trump-era hyper-aggression. I think Trump-era is an anomaly among Democrats/Republicans, an overly extreme expression of anti-China containment that is unlikely to continue in the future. Biden is just a different shade of containment of China, one of competition instead of adversary.
Also, China and US are very complicated states, with a lot of nuances to both.
Also somewhat counterintuitively, I think Harris might actually push India closer to China or at least stop encouraging India as a US pawn to fight China, she is half Indian herself and as Potus will know the US only plans to use India and throw it out later, India is better off siding with China than as part of a Quad...
You are being naive to think the US under the Democrats was any less hyper-aggressive towards China in substance, they were just better at sugar coating it and got their cat paws to lead the charge so they can pretend they are sticking up for the little guys when they were themselves the master mind and driving force.
Biden was Obama’s VP, the same Obama who went after the SCS to try to gain the ability to cut Chinese sea based trade with military force.
China testsWhich would have been far more damaging to China had they succeeded than a dozen of Trump’s trade and tech wars.
I agree with the general sentiment that Republicans are more honest and direct that they are warmongering brutish savages who wants to rape you, while Democrats will sugarcoat their words, try to be friendly, with a smile on their face while trying to stab you to death.Trump was just more direct and honest with his shitfuckery
, while being far less effective at actually getting things done.
Difference is that these events have allowed China's economy to boom at the cost of American jobs and manufacturing - this is 2020 where China is a superpower that is benefiting from decades of American overconsumption which is finally coming to bite Americans in the ass, and not 1994 when China was an emerging economy
