US ‘just a trade bully’
THE United States has started a trade war and China will defend itself, Chinese Vice Minister of Commerce Wang Shouwen says.
He has urged the US to “take the gun” of tariffs away to smooth the way for talks.
“The measures taken are against the interests of China, they are against the interests of US businesses, consumers, workers and farmers,” Mr Wang said.
“They are hampering global economic growth. They are just a trade bully.”
