Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) praised President Trump for finally punishing China for their “flagrant trade abuses,” saying, Trump “is exactly right” to impose $60 billion in China-specific new tariffs on Thursday.

“I don’t agree with President Trump on a whole lot, but today I want to give him a big pat on the back,” Schumer said. “He is doing the right thing when it comes to China.”

“Unfortunately, previous presidents, Democrat and Republican, just stood by as China did what it did to us. President Trump is exactly right,” Schumer continued.

Schumer then discussed how he had called for action on this issue for years but both former President Bush and Obama did nothing.

“I’m very pleased that this administration is taking strong action to get a better deal on China,” Schumer said.

Schumer then attacked China for stealing American companies intellectual property, calling it the “lifeblood of emerging industries.”

“Finally President Trump is doing something, unlike his predecessors. So I commend him,” Schumer said. “So lets make sure China starts playing by the rules.”
