I’m not sure that this is the right time to be fighting this particular battle. Statements like “China has been getting away with economic murder” won’t go down well especially with diplomatic tensions already tenser following the US sale of fighter jets to Taiwan. There is plenty of political mileage to be gained by blaming China for much of the US’ woes but given the present uncertain state of the world’s financial markets, now is not the time to be trying to earn those particular miles.
