    What can we expect from Donald Trump in relation to China? Can recent negative rhetoric in relation to China and Iran be seen as a precursor to conflict? John Wight interviews China expert James Bradley to try to predict Trump's next moves...

    Are we witnessing an attempt to drive a wedge between Russia's alliance with China and Iran by Trump? Will Donald Trump follow the precedent set by Nixon and Kissinger in the early 1970s, with regard to the normalization of US relations with Beijing at the expense of the then Soviet Union, exploiting the opportunity afforded by the Sino-Soviet split?

    On this episode of Hard Facts John is joined by US author and China expert James Bradley to discuss and analyze the very real danger of future military conflict between the US and China and Iran.
