Wyden Statement on Trump U.S.-China Trade Deal

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today released the following statement on Donald Trump’s record on the U.S.-China Trade Deal:

“What has Donald Trump done to crack down on China’s repressive behavior? Worse than nothing – he has condoned China’s behavior, selling out American values in the process, in return for the promise to buy a few more soybeans.

“Make no mistake, China’s censorship, internet blocking and digital interference is not only intended to control its own population, hide its human rights abuses and promote its worldview, but is also an economic cudgel used to protect China’s homegrown internet giants as they steal American innovations.”
