Schumer Says Trump Trying to 'Make China Great Again'

Schumer Says Trump Trying to 'Make China Great Again'

By    |   Monday, 14 May 2018 12:25 PM

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., accused President Donald Trump of trying to "make China great again," The Hill is reporting.

His comments came after Trump said in a tweet on Sunday that he wanted the Commerce Department to help China’s technology company ZTE Corp. "get back into business fast."

The company is one of the world’s largest telecom equipment makers. It suspended main operations after the Commerce Department banned American supplies to the business.

The Hill noted the U.S. had claimed ZTE violated U.S. sanctions.

"One of the few areas where the president and I agreed, and I was vocally supportive, was his approach towards China,” Schumer said. "But even here he is backing off, and his policy is now designed to achieve one goal: make China great again."

Schumer urged “tough action against” companies like ZTE.

"But before it’s even implemented, the president backs off," he said. "This leads to the greatest worry, which is that the president will back off on what China fears most – a crackdown on intellectual property theft – in exchange for buying some goods in the short run. That’s a bad deal if there ever was one."
