Trump uses fear of China to drum up hostilities, and diminish arms control

“What about China?” and the threat to US–Russian nuclear arms control    https://thebulletin.org/2020/07/what-about-china-and-the-threat-to-us-russian-nuclear-arms-control/#

Trump has consistently used fear of China to undermine nearly five decades of bipartisan consensus on US–Russian nuclear arms control. The negative consequences of these actions may last far beyond the Trump presidency.

Future leaders may ultimately need to consider new approaches to nuclear risk reduction that preserve the benefits of the arms control regime.
