In this article, the authors evaluates the perspectives of China to become the World's leader. The suggested concept of leadership, which includes such basic factors as the strategical power, attractiveness of political institutions, ability to create ideas and find allies, is aimed to analyze the complex leadership potential of the country. The author believes that the so-called “Trump factor”, which explicitly refers to the USA 's withdrawal from TPP and the Paris agreement on climate change, will result in a rising demand for the Chinese leadership. However, in this case, there are certain questions to be answered: is China ready for such a leadership? Is it capable of taking such a great responsibility towards the international community? Does it have sufficient potential? The authors claim that during the upcoming 20-30 years China will not become the global leader, because of the internal and external political issues.
