US Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has come out in favor of Donald Trump dealings with China on trade….
This NOT so surprising….
As a Democrat , Schumer has the concept of saving American jobs , as Trump has used to explain his actions…(Trump’s Democratic leaking thru?)….And remember ?….Trump campaigned on ‘bringing American JOBS HOME’….
In addition, Schumer seems to be supporting Trump’s efforts to try to broker something with North Korea…
It IS important to point out that the Democratic leader is out public with these comments AFTER Trump has got thru the first wave angst in making noise and threats that had worried everyone….
Schumer is also likely to get good feedback from the President , who is sensitive to anyone giving an inch of support….
Schumer giving his ole New York friend a pat on the back, no…two pats on the back for Foreign Affairs efforts?
What will we see next?
Schumer told New York AM 970 radio host John Catsimatidis that he credits Trump with “squeezing China,” adding that the president is “on the right path, particularly with the intellectual property.”
“China is not helpful to the United States. They are happy to see us in trouble,” Schumer said in an interview broadcast Sunday.
“And the way to get at them – what is the motherload for China – is their trade with us,” Schumer added. “They take advantage of American workers, American wealth, American companies regularly. I called them rapacious.”
He added that pressuring China on trade could force the Chinese to cooperate with American interests in North Korea, where the U.S. is is working to get North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to give up his nuclear weapons program…..
