U.S. President Donald Trump has, predictably, used his first few days in office to cast himself (and the United States) as a proverbial sun around which every other country orbits. His expansive agenda of recrafting NATO, withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, revising (or even eliminating) the North American Free Trade Agreement, and undermining the One-China policy all have one thing in common: His belief that the U.S. can control the world's political and economic destiny. It is not only the Trump administration that could accelerate the shift in the global balance of power toward China.Trump can play tough at being a unilateralist.Trump's dystopian vision of an America pitted against the world does not bode well.For China, eager to find a soft-power niche in which it can gain a foothold of goodwill, Trump might be just the ticket.
