Once upon a time, there was a China-bashing US presidential candidate. A year and a day later, Donald J. Trump is feted in Beijing, blaming trade imbalances on his predecessors and only really applying pressure on his hosts over North Korea. How much has Trump changed his tune? The two leaders also announced more than $250 billion worth of business deals. Just how interdependent are the world's two largest economies? What's the real balance of power when it comes to trade?
