Gordon Chang: U.S. Should Cut Ties With China

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.”
