Why hasn't no other tried to deal with China on trade and economic issues?

What a bizarre tweet

Back in the day many Democrats used to rail about how trade agreements have hurt the country and how foreign countries take advantage of us, but you don’t hear that from them today.

This has been an ongoing thing since the Nixon administration, so fifty years approximately. Maybe you just haven’t looked into it.

I did indicate that in the OP, and do freely admit that I am not knowledgeable regarding trade related issues. There are only so many hours in the day :cry:. But that is one of the reasons I participate in a forum is to learn from others.
