Most Trump supporters on USMB strongly — and wrongly — insist Biden is “in the pocket of China.” The two foreign policy articles below analyze economic developments and portray the view of sober ruling-class foreign policy experts:

The ... Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership will leave the U.S. sitting on the outside of Asia’s two major free trade blocs ...


The RCEP mega-pact, which includes China but not the United States ... will be signed ... November 15.

President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) ... now known as the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).

[While Japan & CPTPP nations] ... would welcome the incoming Biden administration rejoining the deal, this is unlikely given the prevailing skepticism about free trade deals on all sides of U.S. political dial.

Although the U.S. retains a significant edge in military power, and remains a crucial economic partner to many Asian nations, the present administration has neglected the economic dimensions of its competition with China.... It’s tendency of picking small-bore trade disputes with regional partners has only undermined its broader goal of countering China’s influence in the region. Ankit Panda, a former editor at The Diplomat, wrote on Twitter that the imminent signing of RCEP was “a reminder that big things are happening – and will continue to happen – in Asia, with or without the United States.

Trump’s approach: Long on attitude, short on strategy

Superficially, many in Asia welcomed President Donald Trump’s tough talk about China, praising his administration’s emphasis on “strategic competition” with Beijing. But his policies—particularly on trade and investment—are widely viewed as having undercut that goal. President-elect Joe Biden now has an opportunity to set the stage for more systematic, institutionalized, and effective competition with Beijing...

Asia forms world's biggest trade bloc, a China-backed group excluding U.S.

By Khanh Vu, Phuong Nguyen

HANOI (Reuters) - Fifteen Asia-Pacific economies formed the world’s largest free trade bloc on Sunday, a China-backed deal that excludes the United States, which had left a rival Asia-Pacific grouping under President Donald Trump.

Amid questions over Washington’s engagement in Asia, RCEP may cement China’s position more firmly as an economic partner with Southeast Asia, Japan and Korea, putting the world’s second-biggest economy in a better position to shape the region’s trade rules.

The United States is absent from both RCEP and the successor to the Obama-led Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), leaving the world’s biggest economy out of two trade groups that span the fastest-growing region on earth.

It should also be recognized that the U.S. has all but sabotaged the IMF.
