WASHINGTON – Sen. Marco Rubio continued to criticize the Trump administration's dealings with China, implying a decision to put tariffs on hold is a sucker's play.
Rubio spoke out Sunday on Twitter, saying the tariff decision showed desperation and that China would prevail. The Florida Republican has also denounced Trump's decision to back off on sacntions against ZTE.
If putting tariffs “on hold” means that while we “talk” #China gets to continue to block U.S companies but do whatever they want here & to steal intellectual property then #China has out negotiated the U.S. again. https://t.co/tVwcj5h8pq— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) May 20, 2018
If we make a deal in which #China promises to buy $200 billion from U.S. in exchange for business as usual,the current administration will become the latest example of a White House so desperate for a deal they get beat badly by China in negotiation https://t.co/T2SlAUjEqD— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) May 20, 2018
