Jim Steinberg, former deputy secrectary of state, joined American Grand Strategy Director Peter Feaver, a Duke professor of political science, in a conversation about the US-China relationship. Steinberg said the United States' position had been that we supported a strong and prosperous China.

“I think Xi Jinping changed the game," he added. "There’s no question that he is a more confident leader than his predecessor.”
