This isn't the first time China's view of a U.S. leader has deteriorated rapidly.TheWilson quickly lost his luster in China.A century ago, China was driven to support Wilson, and then to loathe him, by its own weakness.Today, it is China's strength that is guiding its view of the U.S. president.Wilson's appeal in China went beyond image.The China of 2016 is unimaginably different from the China of 1916 . In short, China no longer needs U.S. protection. Instead, it wants a U.S. president who is occupied largely with domestic issues, and is not much concerned with constraining China's rise, as Barack Obama was.
