Former French Ambassador Gérard Araud sees the United States-China rivalry as the biggest diplomatic challenge ahead, and his advice for US policymakers is: Don’t force countries to pick sides.
At the same time, he warns against overestimating China’s power or underestimating US power.
Araud warns that Donald Trump’s victory in 2016 was not a fluke, as more people in Western societies consider their political systems “rigged”.
In this wide-ranging conversation with host Steve Clemons, Araud openly questions whether the West’s “war on terrorism” in the Muslim world can be won by military means.
