Policymakers in Washington don’t agree about much, but there’s a striking bipartisan consensus on one issue: China. On both sides of the aisle, there is agreement that it’s past time to get tough on Beijing.
But is Washington’s China policy shifting? Are U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and U.S. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan finally listening to their European counterparts and advocating for a softer approach on China? And just how far will Washington go in supporting Taiwan?
Join FP’s reporters in conversation with FP executive editor Amelia Lester for a wide-ranging discussion about how Washington is thinking about Beijing now.
