Republicans are anxious about President Trump’s effort to impose new tariffs on China, but one of his staunchest political foes continues to defend him on it.

Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., typically rails against Trump in his daily Senate floor opening remarks. But tariffs are a different story.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I think if we’re really strong and tough against China and the president takes my advice and gets all the other countries involved, we will come to a very good solution very quickly,” Schumer said Tuesday. “I hope he doesn’t back out and come up with a weak solution, because China is going to continue to hurt us over and over again.”

Schumer has become one of the staunchest defenders of Trump’s decision this week to impose 25 percent tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese products. In retaliation, China put tariffs on $60 billion in U.S. goods.

It’s an odd alliance, considering Schumer is one of Trump’s most vocal opponents on just about every other issue and jabs at the president in most of his speeches and press conferences.
