It is the morally right thing to do. It would have been right to recognize this abuse before the Senate decided to weaponize this issue as a warning-shot to China over trade practices.

It may hard to actually bully another country with a rapidly growing, large economy; and who has rapidly been filling the international voids created by trump’s irrational behavior- allowing their bargaining position to become internationally stronger.
