Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a top-tier Democratic presidential candidate, said he would use tariffs as one tool negotiating with China while clarifying that he thinks President Trump’s behavior on the trade negotiations has been “irrational” and is damaging the global economy.
Sanders said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that tariffs are one tool a president has and “of course” he would use them if he was president.
The article goes on to state the following:
“It is used in a rational way within the context of a broad, sensible trade policy. It is one tool that’s available,” Sanders said, adding that he “helped lead the effort against permanent normal trade relations with China and NAFTA.”
“We need a rational trade policy today, not what Trump is doing by tweet,” the senator said.
Trump’s actions have been “totally irrational” and are “destabilizing the entire world economy,” Sanders said.
Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says he would use tariffs as a “tool” to craft trade policy but disagrees with how President Trump is implementing it. “What the President doing is totally irrational and it’s destabilizing the entire world economy,” says Sanders. #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/BE0ZQj1wcn
