Wyden Statement on Trump Administration Announcements on Trade with China

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today issued a statement following news reports that the Trump Administration will not implement proposed tariffs on Chinese products, in exchange for unspecified action by China.

“After all the tough-guy rhetoric, the administration is simply getting rolled on trade with China. Last year this Administration thought it had a meaningful deal with China, but it delivered little more than broken promises,” Wyden said. “Is the president now ready to declare mission accomplished on trade? Until China actually agrees to action that helps American workers and there is evidence of follow through, I’ll keep pushing for the fundamental reforms that translate into more high-skill, high-wage jobs for American workers.”
