A new president in the US is highly unlikely to relieve tension economically and politically within its rivalry and its competition with the second-largest economy. Consequently, although the differences with the incumbent and nominee elect are markedly different. The hard-line within those elected to congress and the senate will remain. As a result, the US sees its rival as the epitome of wrongdoing whether in its abuse of human rights. To intellectual property abuses and everything in between. There is a definite mismatch in how each views the others perceived transgressions. This will keep the simmering accusations simmering on trade and technology violations. The fallout is evident in both countries. Companies in both countries are vehemently opposed to the curtailing and sanctions imposed on them. Should they choose to do business in each other’s countries?
