One day after an interim agreement was reached between China and the United States to put a halt to the 17-month trade war between the two countries, President Donald Trump ripped Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for his critical response to the deal.
"Chuck Schumer sat for years during the Obama Administration and watched as China ripped off the United States. He & the Do Nothing Democrats did NOTHING as this $ carnage took place. Now, without even seeing it, he snipes at our GREAT new deal with China. Too bad Cryin' Chuck!" Trump tweeted Saturday afternoon.
The deal was announced Friday. Schumer and other Democrats quickly criticized it, accusing the Trump administration of giving too much to the Chinese.
"Once again, President Trump cannot be relied upon to the do the right thing for American workers and businesses," Schumer said.
"There are huge structural inequities, structural and unfair imbalances, with China's trade relationships with the U.S.
"At first, President Trump seemed like the only president who would dare tackle this challenge; but now, according to reports, he has sold out for a temporary and unreliable promise from China to purchase some soybeans."
