Steve Hilton: China Imports Are Less Than 3% of US Economy – We Don’t Need China! (VIDEO)

Guest post by Joe Hoft

President Trump is right.  The time is right.  It’s time for China to be held to fair trade standards and accountable for the theft of intellectual property.

On Saturday night on the FOX News Channel’s The Next Revolution, the host Steve Hilton gave an excellent argument for President Trump’s actions to raise tariffs on China.  Hilton shared:

We can easily afford to fight China.  To hear some people talk about it you would think we’re totally dependent on China.  That is absolute rubbish.  Our economy is huge and thanks to President Trump’s pro-enterprise agenda its growing fast.  Imports from China are just 2.7% of its total.  Exports to China a naught point nine (0.9) percent.  Over 96% of our economy is not trade with China.  We could totally disengage with China and we’d be absolutely fine.

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich also agrees that the President is doing the right thing with China –

The timing is right.  It’s time for China to play fair!
