The Obama campaign has released a new ad setting up the president as the man who "stood up to" China. Trade with China has become a topic of debate this week on the campaign trail.
The ad says , "when a flood of Chinese tires threatened a thousand American jobs, it was President Obama who stood up to China and protected American workers. Mitt Romney attacked Obama's decision...said standing up to China was 'bad for the nation and our workers.' "
"How can Mitt Romney take on the cheaters when he's taking their side?" the ad asks.
The ad is a passing reference in Mitt Romney's book "No Apologies"where he argued that a trade complaint filed on behalf of U.S. tire manufacturers could spark a trade war.
