Leave China and come here to study abroad.
This diplomatic standoff has cast in an international spotlight on his persecution by Chinese -- parties.
He has revealed his fears and his concerns during -- Capitol Hill hearing which was quite interesting.
Here's a piece of sound -- that.
Identity -- -- My other family members live and we have huge goal of seven -- who can emerge.
And even magic electric giants whose security officers who -- Hollis.
And or basically said so we want to see what else can one can control.
Trying to right Ian Bremer he's the author of every nation for itself winners and losers in -- -- zero world he's also the president.
Eurasia group franchise now in good to have against one group was it easier -- well first off well and you've heard of the G-7 G-8 and in all the ideas the United States with its allies -- really leading the world's economy whether it's traders environment.
We don't have the G-20 today it's aspiration all the world's twenty largest economies getting together and trying to make things right reality we have the -- -- world without.
Global leadership whether it's on the European crisis -- whether it's on -- -- leading Syria.
Now we're not doing it and nobody else is gonna step in Washington and this kind of depressing Ellis had about it in the context of this situation.
First of all what did you make of him calling into this is -- congressional hearing yesterday and the way that he has orchestrated this whole thing well.
There's no question that he wants out and it it was having Hillary Clinton our secretary of state.
In the country.
At on the on the beginnings of the strategic and economic not -- this was a time of maximum leverage he was ever gonna be able to grab the headlines.
Of of the international press get Romney.
To talk about him this was the time to do it and Obama and Hillary clearly wanted it off the plate worn off equate that played very quickly.
And as a consequence the initial response was was quite embarrassing.
And it could as you point out gotten a lot worse and a lot more tense but we seem to come to this agreement -- I go from being -- house arrest one minute and say only actually wanna -- no problem we're gonna be a -- leave the country and study this is obviously sending it saves space for everybody.
Look I I think that Hillary Clinton worked very very hard over the last 24 hours to get to a deal and I I think we can all agree that if you wanna find a member of the cabinet.
And of Obama's candidates actually outperformed expectations that's been -- Clinton over the last few years -- horrible for her to leave office.
On such a negative note but she also just said in the last couple of hours quote that the US China relationship has never been stronger.
And that of course is ludicrous we've never been more dependent on China perhaps therefore we have less leverage than we used to the Chinese have shown very frequently.
They are willing.
To slap us around whether it's a week before she's in pain in the future president comes to the US and they.
Vito the Security Council resolution on Syria -- -- whether it's saying sorry we're gonna renege on this deal while Hillary Clinton happens to be your country.
Yeah and all of that I think ties back to the fact that we have one point two trillion dollars in debt to China how does that color.
Every one of these conversations and in our actions that we have with China on you react.
Shall we say the past she said it's very hard to criticize your banker.
On human rights issues and the rest and in the fact is that the Chinese feel like we can say we're gonna punish them -- they don't move on currency it's not a credible threat.
The Chinese so much more concerned about their own domestic issues they have their own political transition.
They wanna make sure that they have energy sufficient energy abroad to be able power that growth they want to ensure that they don't have unemployment.
That issue is so much greater than anything we could possibly say to them.
My last trip to the US embassy in in Beijing a lot of people been visiting that place recently.
They told me in the meeting that there was almost nothing that they could see in the past year with the United States is pressed for an issue -- the Chinese have actually.
Given us a little bit of flexibility and they -- that's what they -- that's -- told me directly very interesting and thank you so much in grammar and have your best selves against him.
