The US presidential Advisor for strategic Affairs Steven Bannon said that Beijing and Washington are against each other in an economic war. He told this in an interview with The American Prospect.
“We are in a state of economic war with Beijing. The Chinese do not hide their actions. One of us 25-30 years to become a global hegemon, and it will not be us, if we continue on our current path. What about Pyongyang, it’s just a diversion, a trifle,” — said the expert.
According to him, Washington must maniacally focus on China as a loss in the next five to ten years will be the tipping point for the United States, after which the rivalry with China will be impossible.
