Trump vs Xi

Comparing Trump's and Xi's speaches at the UN General Assembly

Watching the UN General Assembly 2020 General Debate talks. The (expected) contrast between the talks of the US President and the Chinese President is striking in unexpected ways. Trump is defensive. Xi is open talking about global solidarity, openness and the power of tech. // @vrypan

I know that reality has little to do with each talk. The interesting part is what each one wants to represent. What is the official narrative of each country. And Trumps narrative is one of a declining empire, Xi's narrative is one of a rising one. // @vrypan
