Lanhee Chen: The Right Approach to China

President Trump’s record on foreign policy over the course of his first term in office boasts some significant accomplishments and noteworthy gains.

But there’s unfinished business to do—and nowhere is that business more critical than in the efforts to redefine America’s relationship with the People’s Republic of China, tackling the single biggest geopolitical challenge America faces today.

In a potential second term, Trump should establish a single, overriding goal for his foreign policy: how America can win the “strategic competition” we are engaged in with the People’s Republic of China.

More broadly, we need to work with our friends and allies to ensure a “free and open” Indo-Pacific, the region where the most is at stake for us in the coming decades.

But it all starts with the right approach to China.

President Trump has the right team assembled to do this. The American people can give him that opportunity.

Owen Strachan: A Republican Agenda for the Future

The recent unveiling of the Republican agenda for a second term gave much encouragement to many who need it. Defeat COVID; create jobs; disentangle from China; provide school choice; teach American exceptionalism unapologetically; defend the police as an institution; oppose human trafficking—these and other measures offer sanity, flourishing, and hope to an embattled country.

No agenda can cover every issue. Two outstanding issues need platforming, however: religious liberty and abortion. The Trump administration has taken stands on both of these momentous matters and to good effect. In days ahead, though, supporters of religious liberty and the unerasable humanity of the unborn need more support, not less.

Religious liberty, after all, is for this gloriously free society the first freedom. Among other righteous ends, it enables a diverse coalition of many voices to speak on behalf of the unborn until the murderous abomination of abortion is a distant memory.

Lanhee Chen: A Clear-Eyed View of China

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave a major speech last week, outlining a new approach to dealing with China. For many years, American policymakers have assumed that as China became more prosperous, it would become freer, more open and a responsible member of the international community.

We now know these assumptions were wrong.

So what do we do about it?

The Trump Administration is proposing a more clear-eyed view of China. We must recognize that the Chinese Communist Party is espousing a morally bankrupt ideology. Communism and socialism have never worked, and never will. We must, in Pompeo’s words, “engage and empower the Chinese people.”

And we must also join with the free nations of the world to push back on the ideology of the Chinese Communist Party. Pompeo suggested a new alliance of democracies.

That’s exactly the kind of bold action we need—to meet this great challenge of our time.
