The article I analyzed was from the New York Times.  This article is about United States president Donald J. Trump and his talk with Chinese president Xi Jinping.  This article uses a lot of framing to focus on Donald Trump and characterize him as a person to be taken lightly.  The article mentions repeatedly how Chinese officials view Trump as someone who backs down easily and cant be trusted.  Trump supported the “One China” policy when he previously inclined towards being hard on China about the issue with Taiwan.  Now that Trump has backed down, conflict has been avoided and yet the article and China seem to frame Trump as weak simply because he agreed with Xi Jinping.
