OAN NewsroomUPDATED 11:32 AM PT — Tuesday, September 24, 2019
President Trump said he will not accept a bad trade deal for the America people. While speaking at the UN General Assembly Tuesday, he criticized China for alleged currency manipulation and intellectual property theft.
The president said China has declined to follow through on promised trade reforms, and the U.S. has enacted tariffs against the Asian nation in order to confront these trade injustices.

President Trump pointed out that the U.S. lost 60,000 factories after China entered the World Trade Organization, and went on to criticize China for continuing to call itself a developing country.
“The World Trade Organization needs drastic change,” he stated. “The second largest economy in the world should not be permitted to declare itself a developing country in order to game the system at other’s expense.”
President Trump also said the U.S. wants fair and reciprocal trade with other nations. He announced trade talks will continue with Japan, and said the U.S. is also committed to a new trade deal with U.K. after it leaves the EU.
