Chinese are proud people, even if they suffer they will Not surrender to Trump.Chinese have 5000 years of civilization, they won't surrender to Trump , US which is only couple hundred years old.
Even if they suffering , they won't cave in to Trump.
Chinese people are proud people.
It is not about Chinese civilization of 5000 years, but <100 years of communist rule, of which <30 can be considered any success.
But if you insist on the 5000 years, then do consider that during this time the Chinese have surrendered to so many warlords and dictators, foreign and local, that speaking of pride in that sense is quite off.
Rather it is so, that after the 5000 years, the Chinese value safety and stability so much that they can accept it by any means.
Of course it is also not about <200 years of USA, but <5 years of Trump administration.
If you insist on longer term on USA as well, do consider that it was USA that liberated China from the Japanese empire.
