    Even as the United States was bringing in a new administration on Tuesday, China was slapping sanctions against the old one. 28 top officials of Donald Trump’s administration, including former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo were sanctioned by China, for quote “lying and cheating”. The measures have been described as “unproductive and cynical” by Biden administration officials. The new sanctions underline the fraught relationship between both countries. And if we needed any indication of how it will develop over the next four years, President Biden’s nominee for Secretary of State Antony Blinken already took a strong stance towards China at his confirmation hearing.
