As the Trump Administration indicates its inching closer to banning Chinese-owned app TikTok, there are questions about the quickly changing relationship the U.S. has with China and what it will look like in the future.

The novel coronavirus having emanated from China and the Chinese government cornering the pharmaceutical and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) markets certainly accelerated those changes.

China expert and author of “The Coming Collapse of China” said that the best route to take with China would be “for the U.S. to cut its ties with China,” during Monday’s “Mornings with Maria” on Fox Business Channel.

Further, the Phase One Trade Deal between China and the U.S. should’ve never been brokered, Chang said.

“We’ve tried to do this for three decades now and we’ve been completely unsuccessful in obtaining reciprocal, fair trading relationships,” he said.

Moreover, advocating that the U.S. follow in India’s footsteps to ban every Chinese-owned app in the U.S. market, Chang explained, “This is the direction that we should be going in as well because this is just reciprocity.”

Much of the world is getting on with life and attempting to recover any of the horrendous damage caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has just imposed even more Covid-19 lockdowns sparking unrest.

Chinese citizens are banning together to protest yet another round of strict covid protocols and lockdowns suffocating their freedom.

In Shanghai, citizens chanted against President Xi Jinping’s rule, according to CNN. Chants “Xi Jinping, step down” and “Communist party, step down” were chanted. Some protesters held up blank sheets of paper to symbolize resistance against the Chinese government.

One social media user explained the black sheets of paper: “We don’t need to write anything on it. It is a symbol of the revolution of the people.”

An apartment fire in Urumqi, the capital of the far western region of Xinjiang, killed ten people and injured nine last week. The incident triggered “the most recent wave of unrest” because “it was believed that the mobility restrictions in the area either trapped the residents or slowed the dispatch of emergency services” reports National Review.

Various universities including in Shanghai, Beijing, and Nanjing, saw huge crowds of students who honored the victims and denounced China’s zero-Covid-19 policy and strict control measures.
