Editor’s Note: Ian Bremmer, founder and president of U.S. geopolitical consulting company Eurasia Group, shared with Caixin reporter Zhang Yuan’an his views on China-U.S. trade ties and the two countries’ subtle play on the North Korea issue, as the two met on the sidelines of a China Business Forum hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington on May 1. Bremmer said U.S. President Donald Trump did a good job handling the meeting with his Chinese counterpart, President Xi Jinping. But in the long term, Sino-U.S. relations can still go bad, as many people around Trump are hawkish about China.
