Secretary of State Antony Blinken rejected the notion that America was in a new Cold War with China, but sees an urgent need to prove authoritarian leaders who boast about the problems with Democracy wrong.

Americas relations with China began to erode during former President Donald Trumps final year in office, and the presidential transition has done little to ease tensions. China has grown closer to Russia and more obstinate toward the United States, taking nearly daily jabs at America, including over what it deems a hypocritical stance toward Beijing.

Blinken acknowledged that America bears responsibility for making sure democracy is "strong, resilient and meeting the needs of its people." The "test" America and other democracies face is to analyze the challenges and make changes to more effectively deliver for citizens because failing to do so only gives autocracies, such as China, rhetorical ammunition.

"When you hear autocracies challenging democracies, the argument theyre making is they cant deliver; were delivering more effectively, were delivering more efficiently. " Blinken told the Financial Times. "We have to be able to answer that question with conviction and with confidence that no, the system that we believe in is more effective in making a real difference in the lives of our citizens."
