With President-elect Biden stepping into the Executive Office on January 20, 2021, an important priority for Americans will be the challenges President-elect Biden faces at navigating through the muddied relationship between the United States and China. While President Trump’s America’s First policy started with a Trade War with tariffs followed by sanctions and strongly worded statements against China, many U.S. allies are concerned such a unilateral policy has caused more damage to them. Inheriting a relationship that has spiraled down to the lowest level under President Trump’s relationship, Biden faces serious questions on how he will handle the U.S.-China relationship. Will Biden reset the U.S.-China relationship? Many leading experts say not necessarily so. Stakes are too high for Biden to follow the same road President Trump’s administration has taken, but it is certain Biden will have to set forth a different policy.
