  • China is trying to improve their state of being and increase their power in all aspects ranging from economy to military.

    After watching several videos and reading the articles, I can't really state exactly where we are with China except the fact we do need each other and we have a fragile relationship at this time. There are strengths in both of our countries that both of our countries are depending on to survive. With Trump as President, things have become more complicated as well.
