Author and journalist David Ignatius writes in a Washington Post column that Donald Trump's rise to the Oval Office might result in Chinese dominance on the world market.

Building off recent comments from Hong Kong television commentator Wu Jun, Ignatius argues that Trump, despite what he says on the campaign trail about China, would be good for the communist nation.

"His policies would play into China's narrative about the world — and undermine the foundations of U.S. power in Asia, even as they are bolstering a rising China," Ignatius writes.

Ignatius lists several examples to back up his view, including Trump's comments to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States out of terrorism fears and his views on foreign policy that have been called "America First." 

China, writes Ignatius, is adopting more of an internationalist view. He points to the Silk Road project as one example of that.

"Trump's call to "Make America Great Again" is incoherent because it is accompanied by inward-looking, reactive policies," Ignatius writes. "Like Trump's own businesses, it's more a franchising operation than a plan for real investment and growth. Trump may indeed have a formula for greatness — but the 'winner' in this story would likely be Beijing."
