President Obama took a shot at China, complaining to the World Trade Organization that Beijing is abusing trade laws by imposing more than $3 billion in duties on U.S. automobile exports.
“Americans aren’t afraid to compete,” Obama told an enthusiastic crowd in this northern Ohio city hours after his administration filed the complaint with the WTO.
“As long as we’re competing on a fair playing field instead of an unfair playing field, we’re going to do just fine. We’re going to make sure that competition is fair.”
