During a portion of an interview aired on Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Ingraham Angle,” House Speaker Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) stated that China’s most-favored nation trade status should be revoked and the House will move to do so.
Host Laura Ingraham asked, [relevant exchange begins around 5:50] “[W]hy should China continue to enjoy most-favored nation status in trade with the United States? Why?”
McCarthy answered, “One, they should not. I mean, we’ve watched what the past administration — President Trump — had been able to accomplish with China, standing up to China, so it wasn’t China begging America to talk. China was begging to talk to America.”
