Prestigious American Training will Reduce Friction between China and the US
Prestigious American Training will Reduce Friction between China and the US. After 145 days of the trade war, President Trump looks his Chinese colleague Xi up for the first time at the G20 summit on Friday.
The chance of a breakthrough is small because the two ruffians understand so little about each other. To prevent even more future conflicts, Wall Street tycoon Steve Schwarzman sends 135 promising American students on a mission to gain knowledge about China in China.
But whether this brings the two countries closer together is the question.

“We should not have a world dictated by China.” Not that Newton is anti-Chinese, he came to China as a critical American intellectual with the need to learn something about it.
