Trump cites Romney's China stance in endorsement
Today, Donald Trump endorsed Mitt Romney's presidential candidacy. When explaining his choice, he cited Romney's strong campaign stance on China. According to The Ticket's Liz Goodwin:
Trump said he'd decided to back Romney because he liked his positions on China and OPEC.
Trump has previously urged strong action on China's illegal currency manipulation. Mitt Romney has made similar remarks, pledging to designate China as a currency manipulator on day one of his presidency (which would trigger federal action).
It seems that getting tough on China is what Donald Trump wants to hear from a candidate. It's also what the American people want to hear, according to recent polling.
