Trump on China

Track What the Trump Administration is Saying about China

In the run-up to and during his race toward the presidency of the United States, Donald Trump made frequent statements about China, its people, and the government in Beijing, in remarks that ranged from effusive praise to outright attack, and which occupied a wide spectrum of factual accuracy.

In an earlier project, ChinaFile collected statements on China by Trump as part of an effort to track mentions of China in the presidential election. Now that Trump has been elected, we have compiled his campaign-trail China pronouncements in one place. We will add to this collection statements Trump and his cabinet members and senior administration officials make concerning China in the months to come. —The Editors
