The Trump's government have repeatedly declared that "China is our adversary", without any provocation from the Chinese side.
It would be a great mistake for Xi's government to believing that their continue to taking the slapping on the other cheek will change Trump's evil roadmap for China that's already cut into the Washington stones.
China must decouple it's relation with the US.
It must start downsizing it's trade with the US.
It must immediately cease any technology and scientific exchange with the US.
China must stall and stop Trump's folly to repeating the 19th century Western gunboat diplomacy, invasion and occupation of East Asia.Words are not enough to deter the US aggression. Xi must increase China's military strength with at least 20 percent year on year budget increase for the next thirty year. This is how much China must catch up with the western military might existing.
