Wei Zongyou,"The 2017 National Security Strategy of the United States of America  and the Prospect of China-U.S. Relations," 

Contemporary American Review,  No.1, 2018

【Abstract】The 2017 National Security Strategy Report of the United States  of America reflects the strategic vision and foreign policy thinking of Donald  J. Trump and his security team. It vehemently argues for America First and  economic populism, and plays up great power competition. In that context, it  defines China as a revisionist power and the No. one strategic competitor of the  United States. The strategy report also outlines an emerging Indo-Pacific  strategy which focuses on rolling back the influence of China in this area and  beyond. It will exacerbate the strategic suspicion between China and U.S. and  erode the foundation of future China-U.S. cooperation on issues ranging from  regional hotspots to global governance, if the strategy and measures prescribed  in it are fully implemented. What’s more, it will even ignite trade war between  China and the United States and lead to China-U.S. economic and even security  competition in the Indo-Pacific. To avoid this bleak prospect, both China and  U.S. should work hard with good faith and find a way to stabilize China-U.S.  relations.
