Liz Warren is agreeing with Trump China Trade

Ruh Ro, what you Libs gonna do now?  Elizabeth is off the Reservation on the Democrat "free trade at any cost" policy.  Flies in face of the honorable Dr Paul Krugman...pick one Dems!   



The Massachusetts Democrat and Trump foe, who has been touted as a potential 2020 presidential candidate despite rejecting such speculation, has said U.S. trade policy needs a rethink and that she is not afraid of tariffs.

After years of mistakenly assuming economic engagement would lead to a more open China, the U.S. government was waking up to Chinese demands for U.S. companies to give up their know-how in exchange for access to its market, Warren said.

"The whole policy was misdirected. We told ourselves a happy-face story that never fit with the facts," Warren told reporters on Saturday, during a three-day visit to China that began on Friday.

"Now U.S. policymakers are starting to look more aggressively at pushing China to open up the markets without demanding a hostage price of access to U.S. technology," she said.

Warren discussed trade issues and North Korea with senior Chinese officials, including Liu He, the vice premier for economic policy, Yang Jiechi, a top diplomat, and the Minister of Defence Wei Fenghe.

She said she told officials she met that Americans cannot support a more integrated economic system with China if it "fails to respect basic human rights".

Re: Liz Warren is agreeing with Trump China Trade

You're an idiot, BA.


As often noted, you have potential allies on you so called peace platform and on trade in the left wing of the democratic party.


Not, probably on abject surrender to Russia, though, until you get to the real greenies.
