While news and analysis in America continue to be obsessed with Donald Trump's daily antics and insults, halfway around the world, something truly historic just happened.It is the clearly articulated view of China's supreme leader, Xi Jinping. In his speech last week to the 19th Communist Party Congress, Xi declared that China is at a "historic juncture," entering a "new era" that will be marked by the country becoming a "mighty force" in the world and a role model for political and economic development. China needed to learn from the West, especially the United States, and integrate itself into the existing international order.China has aggressively sought to improve its image in the world, spending billions on foreign aid, promising trade and investment, and opening Confucius Institutes to promote Chinese culture.Foreign policy has become a partisan game, with Washington breaking agreements, shifting course and reversing policy almost entirely to score political points at home.The shift in reputation that we are witnessing around the world is not so much about the rise of China but rather the decline of America.
