In a year that was already predicted to involve one of the most contentious U.S. Presidential Elections in recent memory, the first half of 2020 has proven nothing short of historic. As the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, China is asserting its control over Hong Kong and the U.S. has little choice but to respond. With the U.S. Presidential Election only a few months away, will there be an interplay between a “tough on China” stance and President Trump’s reelection bid? How could such a stance play out in Washington and Beijing and how will that affect the broader populations of the U.S., China, and other relevant players in South and Southeast Asia? May this all be different if Vice President Biden takes the day in November? And what is the likelihood of that happening?
