Each day seems like the worst day in the U.S.-China relationship. Even worse, shifting the dramatic decline seems impossible. That’s putting Hollywood in an increasingly difficult position, as a market of increasingly avid movie-goers that once promised big growth now seems caught in a web of international tension.

The relationship may be further tested this week as members of Congress meet with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-Wen in California. On that same trip, the group will meet with Disney CEO Bob Iger and Apple CEO Tim Cook.

I’m advising the leader of that delegation, Rep. Mike Gallagher, R-Wisc., who chairs the Select Committee on Strategic Competition between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party.
