That’s the previously negotiated deal we struck in WTO. Sure, you can argue we need to update that. But the way Trump goes about it is counterproductive at the least, and does great harm to our economy at the worst.
If Trump wants to strike a deal with the Chinese, sit down at the table and negotiate like adults. And show some good faith. Stop all these side shows arresting a Chinese company’s CFO, and stop freaking market out with double talks and sowing fears and uncertainty. Can you imagine the uproar in America if China arrests Tim Cook?
