The world-at-large as viewed by Chinese President Xi Jinping

Who considers itself as the world’s other superpower?
Not one that prepared lengthily for that role, of course.
Yes, concrete signals have been coming from Chinese President Xi Jinping who has been heard by world observers who had the same, apt descriptions akin to aggrandizement to the maximum, entailed by articulating new leaders on whom much has been decried.
Verbiage akin to petty aggrandizement to the maximum on the new POTUS has been exposed by China’s press in articulating their own position as a world power, zeroing in on their myriad beliefs about their sound economy.
Chinese leaders have not hesitated in having signaled that China” sees itself, to get to a more precise description: “sees itself as the other super power, positioning itself as an alternative, if not rival to the United States.”
In addition, the Chinese president was heard to declare: “China can do so, says as much about America’s decline as it does China’s rise.”
Other news reports zeroing in on President Jinping have indicated very strongly: “In part China’s new stance toward the world, and the way it has been received, are a result of the continued strength of the Chinese economy; the growing political confidence of the party under its chief leader.”
Yet, voices that contradict say: “changes are occurring against the backdrop of the total collapse of political and moral authority of the United States in today’s world.”
Historians and economists sensibly indicate: “China has aggressively sought to improve its image in the world.” To make this point in its full strength, facts and figures were ascribed to China’s having spent “billions on foreign aid, promising trade, investment, and opening Confucius Institutes to promote Chinese culture.”
In the face of China’s aggressive spending, U.S. economic analysts have been very vocal. The aforesaid experts insist that their country must “look now to the rest of the world.”
How the U.S. is politically paralyzed seems to be a given, as exemplified by noted Republicans against their Republican chief-of- state.
Citing its major inability: how America is ‘unable to make major decisions against the background of a ballooning debt; its investments in education; infrastructure; science and technology, are but a few of the pressing needs that confront the 50 states of the Union.
Politics, a vast many an unpleasant talk, has been largely to blame, according to former U.S. leaders of note.
Never in the nation’s recent history has politics emerged as a primary branch of reality TV, almost day-in-to-day-out insults, degradations, colored by bias and racial overtones.
International statements coming from principal nations all over, admit how America’s historical leadership role in the globe has been rudely pushed away by what has been known over the recent past eleven months or so, as the most narrow and cramped ideology meant to completely debunk and erase all that took place in the past eight years under former President Obama.
Truth to tell, foreign policy has been rendered to the back burner as a wholly partisan ridiculous game, foremost of which can be told: the White House’s breaking agreements, shifting course and reversing policy in its entirety just for the sake of scoring what might not even be considered “political points” across the length and breadth of the U.S. nation itself.
The East Asia Summit seems evident to appear on the scene at what has been described by neutral observers as: “the very end of a long trip to Asia that features a robust agenda, designed to be a full demonstration of Washington’s commitment to the region” it can no longer ignore the way it’s been going on since Trump took over on January 20, 2017.
All astute political analysts who have chosen to stick to principle strongly aver to the summit as the sole opportunity for the current president of the U.S, to sit down and collectively engage his Asia-Pacific counterparts on the main political and security issues of today’s pressing needs belonging to the world.
Stronger voices have lent their say: “Trump will actually be in the Philippines, where the summit is being held, as it gets underway.
“Departing as it begins can only be viewed in no other way as a snub and will undermine whatever else Trump may have achieved in the previous 11 days.”
The Summit will reveal what it’s supposed to be its intent: to be on the front burner and to stay on the same burner for the sake of universal peace as economies are anticipated to globalize and the centralization of national governments will be at the vanguard of international credibility.
