Schumer hits Trump for offering aid to Chinese company: 'How about helping American companies?'

Source: The Hill




BY BRETT SAMUELS - 05/13/18 04:42 PM EDT

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Sunday criticized President Trump for directing the Commerce Department to assist a Chinese telecommunications company.

The Commerce Department last month banned American companies from selling components to ZTE because the Chinese firm violated U.S. sanctions by selling equipment to Iran.

Trump’s willingness to aid ZTE comes after the two nations have spent parts of recent months trading tariff threats.

The president has attacked China for its trade practices since he hit the campaign trail in 2015. In recent months, his administration has announced $50 billion in tariffs against Chinese imports to the U.S., and has threatened to impose another $100 billion.

3. Chucky, he did help American companies, remember Carrier?

Oh, forgot, the millions in taxpayer subsidies ran out after a year and Carrier cut those workers anyway. And, they built a factory in Mexico and tRUMP grifters still make their shit in China....If we don't get people registered and VOTE we will deserve what we have and get.

9. Voter registration saw a huge increase between 2012 and 2016

from around 150 million to around 200 million. The problem was turnout barely ticked up. So, GOTV once registered is even more important.
