Last month in these pages, Tyler Cowen coined the term "placebo President" to describe the possibility that Donald Trump would largely fail to achieve the radically populist policy objectives he campaigned on but maintain the support of his white working class base by symbolically affirming their dignity and cultural status-offering his supporters "a public voice and the illusion of more control without the control itself".
Cheng says Xi is likely to have sought - and received - assurances from Trump that the US would hold off on using military force against North Korea, giving tougher sanctions and diplomacy more time to work. Maybe he prefers to approach issues with an open (or empty) mind.

Trump has evolved on other China-related policies as well. He said a US declaration of Chinese manipulation could jeopardize efforts to secure the country's help in containing the threat posed by North Korea.
On Tuesday, Trump tweeted that he'd told Xi a trade deal with the United States would be "far better for them if they solve the North Korea problem". "Many European allies have to invest more in defense and I'm pushing that very hard because we need to invest more in security when tensions are going up".

"I said (during the presidential campaign) it was obsolete". "We have strength in our capabilities when it comes to fighting terrorism".
