The contradictions of Trump’s decoupling strategy

“There is an inherent and fundamental contradiction in the Trump administration’s China policy. On one hand, decoupling U.S. and Chinese technology supply chains may well ameliorate perceived national security vulnerabilities posed by companies such as Huawei. But the United States have an additional objective: to pressure China to make substantial changes to its state-dominated economic model, characterized by an activist industrial policy, discrimination against foreign competition and a Party-managed legal system. These two goals are completely contradictory.”
