Catch the slow train

“From Beijing to Shanghai on a high-speed train takes 4 hours 18 minutes. It takes 21 hours from Chicago to New York, which is roughly the same distance.”


Thomas Friedman, author and New York Times columnist, talks to CNN’s Chris Cuomo about his concern that Donald Trump is still such a dominating influence in American politics. “What are we talking about today in the US, and what are they talking about in China?” he asked, referencing infrastructure investment. Friedman argued that America is falling further behind China and risks becoming less of “a serious country”.
