Ai Weiwei, and doing business with China

Hosted by

Donald Trump's policy of "America First" gives a rising China more room to flex its muscles. This week, we consider from many sides the complex relationship between the US and China. David Remnick talks with Ai Weiwei, the dissident and global art star; a congressman asks us to reconsider trade with China; and Chinese students explain why Ivanka Trump is considered a role model in the country, and what that says about gender roles there. (Evan Osnos hosts this special episode.)
