On China, Biden is making the same error as Trump.

Biden administration is struggling to find the right approach to dealing with China, Julian Zelizer says. U.S. needs to ensure that our technology does not power the Chinese military, he says. But we can’t simply build a metaphorical wall between our two economies, Zelizer writes. Biden administration’s ban on exports of cutting edge U.S. chip-making technology to China is a big gamble. There is no way to prevent civilian technology from being used for military purposes. Sanctions could backfire if they lead to tensions not only with China but also with America’s allies.
