The newsweekly carried an interview with Clayton Dube of the USC US-China Institute. Dube spoke about how the US-China relationship changed over the past forty years. He also discussed the limited press access to Chinese leader Xi Jinping during his visit and drew comparisons to press coverage of Richard Nixon’s 1972 trip to China. He noted that while the Chinese government today complains that there’s strategic mistrust between the two countries, it is mistaken to think the problem is merely a matter of poor communication. Important policy differences exist between the US and China.
