Since the election of Trump as President, the US has made many new enemies, from the Muslim world, with his declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, to his tearing up of international agreements, like the Paris Climate Agreement, NAFTA, etc. Even old friends in Europe have turned against the US! China, on the other hand has been very busy building bridges (real, and metaphorical) with many nations; for instance Panama has just opened its embassy in China; many nations support China's Belt and Road initiative, etc
One must wonder how many friends the US have left. Just at the UN Security Council vote on Jerusalem, the majority voted against the US, forcing the US ambassador to make a threat to punish those who voted against them. The next vote will go to the General Assembly, and the US will lose even more votes there! And btw, the initiator of the UNSC vote happens to be Egypt, who used to be a good friend of the US!
