China’s President Xi Jinping said Thursday that global affairs should not be set by a single country that gives “the whole world a rhythm.”
While not mentioning the U.S. by name, he said, “Bossing others around and interfering in other countries’ international affairs will not be well received.”
Xi made his comments during a speech at the Boao Forum for Asia, according to the Wall Street Journal. The paper said the event bills itself as Asia’s answer to the winter conference in Davos. In a pre-recorded video, Xi said,
“International affairs should be conducted by way of negotiations and discussions, and the future destiny of the world should be decided by all countries… One or a few countries shouldn’t impose their rules on others, and the world shouldn’t be led on by the unilateralism of a few countries.”
The Trends Journal has reported that the Biden administration is working to counter the growing threat of China on the world stage. (See our 30 March article, BIDEN VS. CHINA’S BELT & ROAD INITIATIVE: US LOSES and our 16 February article, CHINA TASK FORCE: U.S. APPROACH TO BEIJING.”)
Biden has called China the U.S.’s toughest competitor and has called Xi a “thug” during the 2020 presidential campaign.
TRENDPOST: For decades, especially under the Obama presidency, its leaders continually put the United States high above all the nations of the world, bragging about American “exceptionalism.”
No more. As the United States declines physically, morally, and mentally, that term is barely mentioned, and, if it were, countries such as China would react with scorn. 
TREND FORECAST: One of our “Top Trends for 2021” was “THE RISE OF CHINA.” As we have forecast, the 20th century was the American century – the 21st century will be the Chinese century. The business of China is business; the business of America is war. 
While America spent countless trillions waging and losing endless wars and enriching its military-industrial complex, China has spent its trillions advancing the nation’s businesses and building its 21st-century infrastructure.
