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.
From last night's #SteveSays:
"The snooty establishment call Trump the ignoramus. He was right about China. The entire establishment got it wrong. Now as president, Donald Trump is delivering exactly the tough stance he called for as a private citizen two decades ago…" pic.twitter.com/H5Q2F43CMg

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich also agrees that the President is doing the right thing with China –
President @realDonaldTrump is absolutely right that we have had a one-sided relationship with China and that it's finally time to do something about it. pic.twitter.com/q4tCWnPSjP
