After attacking his predecessors, whom he claimed ignored the problematic history of China malpractice on trade, President Trump self-aggrandized view on his position, calling himself The Chosen One to clean up the mess. He seems to be focused on China and as a result, is feels that the to countries are on a collision course for economic and even super power leadership in the world. Trump has attacked some of the bad actor practices by the Chinese, and not the Chinese people.
Intellectual proper rights, fair trade and market access have been issues that were challenged by the EU, Japanese, South Koreans and US for decades and finally someone has addressed them. China wants a good trade deal but the world seems to be asking in a more polite way (than Trump) to get access. We feel that China will eventually open up and the world will see it as as good actor on trade, but long after The Chosen One (think of the movie The Matrix), has retired.
