WASHINGTON, DC. -
The Trump administration is pushing forward with an aggressive and public effort to condemn China for a wide series of transgressions, a strategy that risks intensifying an already high-stakes standoff with Beijing.

President Trump has long denounced U.S. trade policies with China, a centerpiece of his 2016 campaign that was a critical reason for his victories in the states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

But over the last few months, the administration’s conflicts with China have gone well beyond trade to include signs of military flare-ups over the South China Sea and public allegations that Beijing is interfering in U.S. elections.

These widening areas of conflict have happened even as the trade fight with China has deepened, with Trump announcing $200 billion in new tariffs on Chinese imports just last month.
