Schumer Statement On Decision to Suspend Tariffs on China

May 20, 2018

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement on the United States’ decision to suspend its plan to impose tariffs on Chinese products:

“President Trump has created a unique opportunity but the people doing the negotiating shouldn’t blow it. There is nothing wrong with these talks but the proof of the pudding is in the eating. If President Xi is going to escape meaningful punishment for ZTE and fail to take strong actions on intellectual property, cyber theft, and American companies having free access to sell goods in China, and instead simply provide a promise to buy goods for the next few years, we will have lost. “
