Michel Hockx offers an op-ed on the Trump-Xi meeting Thursday 4/6/2017 in Mar-aLago, Florida, arguing that the two leaders share more in common than some might presume. He writes that both leaders mistrust the media, long to restore their nation's glory and maintain conservative views. Hockx is a professor of Chinese literature in the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures and the director of the Liu Institute in the Keough School of Global Affairs.
