TELL TRUMP: U.S. Workers Deserve Better. Stand Up to China!
Trump administration officials recently wrapped up talks with Chinese officials in Washington. Things did not go well.
No commitments were made to finally stop China’s theft of intellectual property, which costs the U.S. economy up to $600 billion a year. Nothing was done to address China’s unfair trade practices that have lead to lost American jobs (3.4 million between 2001 and 2015).
Instead, officials agreed to suspend tariffs on Chinese products — and played right into Beijing’s hands.
Beijing’s unfair trade practices — theft of trade secrets, state-led capitalism, piracy, mercantilism, forced technology transfer, industrial overcapacity — have long gone unchecked. Nothing will change unless the United States gets tough.
Tell President Trump to stand up to China.
