It's from a piece of news about the trade war. Trump said that they're doing a very good job with China". I know "do a good job" means "do something well". But I feel quite confused about it followed with "with sb/sth". Does it mean "cooperate well with sb" or "treat sb well" or "both sides do something well"?

There with means "in respect to", or "regarding".

You have to allow context to guide you in situations where a word has multiple meanings. Do we really "cooperate" with an adversary? The context is a trade war.

You did a great job with that playground bully. It is good to intercede as you did.
