Congressman Don Bacon still supports trade war with China

January 1, 2019

LINCOLN - Congressman Don Bacon supports President Trump’s trade war to end China’s unfair trading practices, despite the reported losses to Nebraska’s ag sector as a result of retaliatory tariffs.

Bacon acknowledges that the trade war between the U.S and China can’t go on forever, but also notes that for too long China has been getting away with unfair trade.

Bacon says for every dollar we trade to China, China trades five dollars here because China’s government subsidizes so many goods, Chinese companies can glut markets with cheap products.
