China vs. Democracy: The Day After the Election

A Virtual Intelligence Session
Thursday, October 29, 2020
2:30-4:30pm PT • 5:30-7:30pm ET

In the US, Election Day looms large. And just behind it waits Xi Jinping, whose international expansionism and economic espionage have been sullied in recent years by the Trump administration’s aggressive approach to Chinese sanctions. Historically, Democrats have played softball on China, but with millions of Uighurs in “reeducation camps” and Hong Kong citizens now essentially gagged and fleeing restrictive new Chinese rules, would that bear out under a new Democratic presidency? If Trump wins reelection, will his stance on China change?

Join SNS for FiReSide, an evening of advance insight about “the day after” the US election and what to expect in the way of China strategy from each candidate.
