US media:Biden is the first US president to face a rising China. Has the Obama era come?
If you want to select the most difficult president in American history, it’s definitely not Joe Biden No, the mess he took over from Trump is no better than when Roosevelt took over the United States, which was in the midst of an economic crisis. Moreover, compared with the last century, the United States today is no longer confronting the Eurasian continent with constant disputes, but an”Asia-Europe Community” that continuously strengthens exchanges and cooperation under China’s grand strategy.
On January 23, the”Japan Times” published an article The article titled:How does Biden deal with China? The article mentioned that Biden will face a series of foreign policy problems, the most important one of which is the increasingly severe challenge from China. Biden inherited a huge trust deficit from Trump and the deteriorating US-China relationship. How to deal with this complex relationship in the future It is a big problem for Biden.

Trump’s policy toward China during his tenure is”zero sum”, that is,” Either you die or I die” such an attitude. That’s why it has been engaged in a trade war, stepped up pressure on the South China Sea, and repeatedly provoked China by touching our red line. All this is not so much for”Make America Great Again” as it is for Trump to please his voters.”Red neck” The rising nationalist sentiment is the best tool for Trump’s election four years ago, but this Trump The tools left over are now the”Sword of Damocles” hanging around Biden’s neck.
Now Biden has to re-adjust his strategy toward China, once Obama The Sino-US relationship of the times may come again. At present, Biden’s goal is to reset Sino-US relations from zero to three states:competition, cooperation, and contention. So is everything that Trump has done to China over the past four years is reversible? Perhaps it is not that simple. The US”International Policy Digest” published an article on January 23 stating that Biden was the first American president to face a rising China. In other words, China today is very different from the Obama era. It is not something the United States can return to the past when it wants to.

The original Is the Asia-Pacific Rebalancing Strategy still applicable today? Now the South China Sea has become a military zone of China. No matter how the United States redeploys, it cannot change this reality. The so-called”Thucydides trap” has become nonsense. This concept refers to the fact that the rising country will inevitably challenge the existing superpowers and will be hit back fiercely. But today’s China is not a”rising” country. We have basically completed our rise. We have indeed surpassed the United States in many aspects. At the military level, we also have the powerful strength that can bring the US aircraft carrier to the ground.
If the economic and trade blockade against China during the Obama era There is a certain degree of feasibility. After the trade war and the epidemic, both the “Belt and Road” and Sino-US trade routes have become extremely active. Although Trump imposed tariffs on many Chinese products, China last year Instead, U.S. exports increased by 7.9%over 2019.
