As Trump fights with China over trade, US-China economic relationship already being redefined

Craig Allen, president of the US-China Business Council, which represents companies such as Amazon, Goldman Sachs and Procter & Gamble, said the administration’s stance presents multinationals with a dilemma. “A company told me today they feel some tension between what their shareholders are telling them and what the Trump administration is telling them,” said Allen, a former US diplomat. “The administration is suggesting or emphasizing investment in the US. That’s not where the market is; that’s not where the market growth is.”
