China wants to beat us. We don’t want to beat it. Anyone want to guess who’s gonna win on those terms?
The United States is seeking a healthy competition with China based on fair rules that benefit both countries, not a “winner-take-all” approach, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen told Chinese Premier Li Qiang in a meeting in Beijing on Friday.
Premier Li Qiang then had to keep himself from giggling with glee.
Communist China is pursuing a “winner-take-all” approach. We’re not. How does Yellen see that playing out?
Yellen, in prepared remarks, told Li she hoped her visit would spur more regular channels of communication between the world’s two largest economies, adding that both countries had a duty to “show leadership” on global challenges such as climate change.
Take our entire economy, please. Just “show leadership” on global warming.
While China goes ‘wolf warrior’, we go kitty kat. China wants to win, we want to lose on good terms.
