Axios is reporting that the Trump administration is planning to launch a major, “administration-wide,” broadside against China.
According to Axios sources in the White House, the push is coming from the US national security apparatus.
The anti-China campaign is planned to be both rhetorical and substantive, and will involve multiple departments and agencies of the US government, including the White House, Treasury, Commerce and Defense.
“We’re not just going to let Russia be the bogeyman,” one White House official told Axios. “It’s Russia and China.”
