    Businessman and billionaire Tom Steyer said the U.S. would have to work with China despite concerns over its human rights record.

    We actually cant isolate ourselves from China. In fact, we have to work with them as a frenemy, people who disturb us, who we disagree with, but who in effect we are linked to in a world that is ever getting closer, Steyer said at the 2020 Democratic primary debate Thursday in Los Angeles.

    Our country has far more to gain working with China instead of picking unproductive economic & military fights with them.

    No, we need to divorce from China and stop flirting with the modern day Nazi regime of our time. The Chinese government, point blank, is evil and must be opposed. Their flagrant human rights violations, threats to international order, military ambitions that violate the sovereignty of countries like Taiwan, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, etc , their concentration camps for Muslims in East Turkestan (Xinjiang), plus a multitude of other reasons are why the US needs to view China squarely as an enemy, divorce our economies even if it's painful, and directly oppose Beijing's international ambitions.

    Glory to Hong Kong! Oppose China's authoritarianism and human rights abuses!

    We have been 'working with China' for decades. The most amazing transformation has been among the left who used to be champions of human rights and who now dont give a crap.
    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add within the limits of the law, because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.--Thomas Jefferson

    Who is provoking China?

    Economic fights are a good thing when one side is being taken advantage of.

    Is Jack a China man these days?
