All Right There Everyone It Is Time To Talk
about President Trump’s visit to China. This is a very significant visit, especially given how central China was to Trump’s campaign, highlighting the massive trade deficits between our two nations. Trump made it clear and he continues to that such deficits would no longer be tolerated and that its elimination was essential for the renewal of our own manufacturing and industrial base. We’re also seeing a mass resurgence of the Chinese dominance in the region of the western Pacific, which is very concerning for China’s neighbors such as Japan and Taiwan, and of course, there is the dark specter of North Korea hovering over the summit as well. Now China is really playing up this visit their state media is very excited about President Trump noting that Trump is the first world leader to visit President season ping after his re-election.
The Helm Of The Recent Communist Party Congress
Trump’s visit is very much playing into the whole Methos of China’s rise to power on the global stage. We have to remember that all of these events the rise of Chinese dominance in the region. Its economic protectionism its influence of in North Korea. All of these dynamics come together what scholars are seeing as a renewal of you guessed it Chinese nationalism and it’s very interesting here because it’s being increasingly recognized by China’s Communist Party that they can no longer rely on Marxist or Maoist Audiology to bind together the loyalties of its citizenry. Moreover, China’s days of just unfettered economic growth are coming to an end as well.
Their Population Is Aging Their One
child per family policies coming home to roost as it were and they simply are not going to have an adequate younger population to. maintain strong economic growth while at the same time providing the welfare an extensive social services needed for the aging population that will inevitably detract from China’s economic growth and so China, like nations throughout the world is turning to its own unique form of nationalism and populism as an alternative to the waning idealism of communism of the one hand and the waning of the capitalist inspired economic growth on the other and so what’s the driving force behind Chinese nationalism. Well Scholars such as Howard French have documented how Chinese nationalism draws from a sense of restored civilizational greatness now. Much of this nationalism began in the latter part of the 19th century, which was at the midpoints of a hundred year period when China was dominated by Western powers on the one hand and Japan on the other. China refers to this period as the century of.
Humiliation Its A Period Between 1839 And
1949. It’s a time when you’re dealing with the so-called second opium war with the British Empire and the French Empire. It’s followed by the Sino–french War the Sino-japanese War. It’s a tumultuous time for China. This is the time that China ceded mass amounts of territories to the Russian Empire Hong Kong to the British Empire they lost Taiwan and the like now in many respects the heart of this new Chinese nationalism is sort of a resurgence of Chinese identity characteristic of domestic and international conditions.
Prior To This Century Of Humiliation.
In other words, China wants to restore both the control of the trade relationships with its neighbors that it once dominated, and it wants to recover the territories lost to Western and Japanese Imperialism. So this scholar Howard French argues that what China’s adopted of late is something akin. and its surrounding oceans if you recall the Monroe Doctrine said that the United States would no longer accept any further colonization by European powers of countries in the in the Western Hemisphere and this developed over the succeeding aids into the United States regarding the Americas as its exclusive sphere of interest, and this meant that the United States could intervene in neighboring countries on the one hand, and it could prohibit the presence of other European nations in exercising significant influence in the region on the other and so what China is seeking to do is basically emulate. The United States 19th century policy of taking exclusive control of security in the Western Pacific by basically excluding foreign powers from having any significant influence in the region.
Its Very Bold Initiative On The
part of China and it’s very much rooted in this resurgent nationalism now of course. This is absolutely rattling nations like Japan who feel they’ve they’re constantly being bullied by China’s assertiveness and aggressiveness in policing the region. The tensions here are particularly with regard to what are called dissent Senkaku Islands off the coast of Taiwan, which is a disputed territory between Japan and China and of course Taiwan now with this in the background, Trump has made it very clear that he’s interested primarily in two things. He’s interested in renegotiating China and UK trade deals on the one hand, and he wants China to intervene in North Korea on the other and the two are very much interrelated, particularly for China you see without North Korea. Trump basically has all the leverage he could come in and like he did during the campaign and basically say hey you want to keep your manufacturing industries humming and booming.

You Want To Keep Your.
fragile stock market growing in the Shanghai Stock Exchange well then you better do what I would I say here right. The UK would have all the leverage in the world in trade negotiations that’s all if there were no North Korea North Korea is the full house in the hand of China. North Korea can completely destabilize the Asia-pacific region. It can pit the unite stays in China against one another and it can always threaten to armed terrorists by proxy providing weapons, possibly even a nuclear weapon to terrorist organizations around the world and so China exploits the proximity of North Korea to itself both geographically and politically to keep the United States from having a mass negotiation advantage right a u.
if you want to control North Korea and keep it from destabilizing the region and our relationships with one another and keep tabs of who’s coming. And going out of North Korea well then you’re gonna have to give us something back in return right so what we’re most likely going to see is a move by Trump to negotiate for better market access to the huge mainline China market mainland China market which would offset any kind of trade deficit. I think far from wanting to just slap unitive tariffs on China to pay for the deficit. The UK wants to open up the Chinese markets to make up for any trade loss and so instead of closing off imports from China we’re going to try to radically improve exports UK exports to China so this is sort of trumps win-win art of the deal.
China Continues To Get What It Wants,
which is open access to American markets without discouraging and disruptive tariffs and the U.s. gets what it wants in terms of an. expanding Chinese market for our own manufacturing and industries, and even before President Trump touched ground. China was already signaling that this would certainly be the case that they’re open to the UK is reporting that China’s Commerce Ministry said the County the country.
Will It Will In Fact Lower
Terrace and and step-up bank financing to support more imports and narrow its massive trade surplus with the United States. This one turned keep the United States very much happy and one turn allowed China to continue its ever-increasing presence in the western Pacific. This of course brings up North Korea as long as North Korea keeps making its threats. China will be needed to help the tensions from escalating in the region and so we can expect North Korea to be an issue in the region for the indefinite future I’m sure their rhetoric and actions will calm down. Ensuing weeks after this summit meeting, China will show its influence, but then of course they’ll go right back to where they left off, which will in turn increase the need for China’s intervention and influence in the region, which is itself being fuelled domestically by China’s resurgent nationalism, and so it does appear that Chinese nationalism will be playing a central role in the Western Pacific region for the foreseeable future.
The Questions Remaining Involve The Extent To
which the United States and China remain amicable trade partners which Trump is certainly interested in maintaining but which aggressive actions regarding disputed territories in the region can easily disrupt and then the other issue is whether North Korea can remain under the control of China’s influence in the region only time will tell on these two main issues, but the key to me at least in this whole thing is. The resurgent nationalism of China continues to play a key role in the area. Nationalism continues to play a key role in geopolitical attacks in general, and China is certainly no exception to that. The rise of Chinese nationalism is a very significant factor in the Western Pacific and will continue to be for the foreseeable future God Bless.
