US President Donald Trump thinks he might boost a China trade deal if he stops prosecutors from extraditing a Huawei executive, but he risks undermining the US justice system.
The Trump administration has insisted the arrest of a top Huawei executive has nothing to do with trade talks. In Beijing, it’s just the latest US move to contain China’s rise as a global power.
China’s state media called the arrest of Huawei’s chief financial officer in Canada a “despicable rogue’s approach”, painting the move as a politically motivated effort to contain China’s rise.
On the same day Donald Trump and Xi Jinping struck a trade war truce in Argentina, some 11 000km away Canadian authorities made an arrest that now threatens to make the US-China conflict much worse.
