US China policy shifted decisively from engagement to antagonism under Donald Trump, and many expected Joe Biden to shift back to a less hostile policy. Yet he has continued Trump's tariffs, the “Quad” alignment with Japan, Australia, and India, and the designation of Chinese policy in Xinjiang as a “genocide.” Is Biden just continuing Trump's China policy, or are there some important differences? If so, what are they? And what are the prospects that Biden’s China policy will succeed?
