CGTN: “China Initiative” is dead, but America’s distrust of China is not

In my latest editorial for CGTN, I remind the audience that we should be careful before we choose to celebrate the demise of the China Initiative in the U.S.

At the same time the China Initiative ended, a new program was started. According to the Washington Post, the “Strategy for Countering Nation-State Threats” will be “aimed at countering espionage, cyberattacks and other threats posed by a range of countries.” The aforementioned Assistant Attorney General Olsen included China among those countries.

In other words, at the end of the day, this new “strategy” may well be nothing more than the rebranding of a policy of hate.
