Europeans share many of concerns that the US has about the Chinese surveillance state, and the dangers that it poses to competition, privacy and liberal democracy. The US president could have drawn Europe into an alliance that would have pressured China about old trade grievances as well as the need for a new global framework on how digital business should be governed.
