Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has backed President Donald Trump’s decision to impose tariffs on $50 billion of Chinese goods, stating China: “needs us more than we need them.”
Speaking in an interview with John Catsimatidis on 970 AM-N.Y. on Sunday, Schumer commented that the tariffs should be imposed because China did not treat the U.S. fairly.
“It’s going to take a little bit of toughness at the beginning. China will bark back. But they need us more than we need them, President Trump is right about that, and we should be strong. So I thought what he did on China is right,” Schumer said.
