Trump push for China trade reform draws wide support at home, abroad

U.S. President Donald Trump’s blunt-force use of tariffs in pursuing his “America First” trade agenda has angered many, from company executives to allied governments and members of both parties of Congress. But there’s one effort which has drawn broad support from those who oppose him on almost everything else - his push to force Beijing to change what are widely viewed as China’s market-distorting trade and subsidy practices. As U.S.-China talks to end a trade war reach their endgame, politicians, executives and foreign diplomats are urging Trump and his team to hold out for meaningful structural reforms in China to address entrenched problems in the relationship that hurt U.S. and other foreign companies and workers.
