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.

Hugh Hewitt: The Prospects for President Trump on Election Day

President Trump has a record of accomplishments that’s pretty easy to compile.

Most significantly, he has brought the existential threat posed by the Chinese Communist Party into the sunlight.

Trump has buttressed the constitution—with two justices on the Supreme Court, 53 judges on the federal courts of appeal and over 140 district court judges.

President Trump’s tax cuts—along with his massive deregulation—led to 3.5 percent unemployment until the regime in Beijing acted with criminal recklessness towards a virus that has devastated the world.

Trump’s brawling, slugging, tempestuous approach has worn down many, but his road is marked by these accomplishments.

The elites are convinced he must be beaten. But Americans want their jobs and security back. They like the police. They like civil order.

Yes: Polling shows him behind 50-year D.C. insider Joe Biden.

We’ll see.

I feel pretty good about President Trump’s chances.

I’m Hugh Hewitt.

Hugh Hewitt: The 2020 Election: Two Agendas

Which agenda do you prefer for the next four years?

President Trump’s? Or Joe Biden’s?

That’s a helpful way to aid voters in their choice this November.

President Trump believes in the Constitution, as proved most obviously by his two Supreme Court Justices and 53 federal circuit court judges.

Trump will continue his military buildup and his push for enforcement of rule of law—as demonstrated by Attorney General William Barr.

Trump will continue his massive deregulation of the American economy.

Biden, on the other hand, will almost certainly raise taxes—and raise them significantly.

Biden judges will be activist judges, likely seeing nothing wrong with the return of race-based rewards.

And there’s a very real potential that Biden will pack the Supreme Court—increasing the number of justices in a replay of FDR’s failed effort in 1937.

And under a Biden presidency we’ll see some sort of Green New Deal.

That’s a fair statement of the expectations.

I’m voting for Trump.
