GOP Senators Think Pres. Trump Losing Trade War With China

Trump and Xi Jinping

President Donald Trump is confident that winning the trade war with China is easy. However, some Republican senators think the President is losing the trade negotiations with China.

In an interview with Fox News Sunday, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said they put on hold the trade war and tariffs against China. They are trying to reach an agreement with China to increase its purchases of American products.

In a tweet on Tuesday, GOP Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida suggested that “China is out-negotiating” the Trump administration. He pointed to a Wall Street Journal report indicating that China managed to take advantage of Pres. Trump’s weak points to avoid many of the threatened U.S. tariffs.

On the other hand, Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska said farmer doubted Pres. Trump’s claim that China agreed buy more agricultural products.

Bull Shit.... not a single one of them has had a positive impact on our economy or social structure. We have had more positive movement in the obstructed Congress than the preceding 20.
