On this episode of China Uncensored, Donald Trump blames China. Again.
Hi, welcome to China Uncensored. I'm your host Chris Chappell.
你好，欢迎收看中国解密。我是主持人 Chris Chappell。
Presidential candidate Donald Trump is no stranger to controversy, whether it's making sexual innuendos about other politicians or saying China is raping the United States.
"We can't continue to allow China to rape our country, and that's what they're doing."
And who's to blame? The victim of course!
“China's great. No problem.
I'm not angry with China… I'm angry at our leaders, because they are grossly incompetent and they shouldn't have ever been elected to do this job.”
Now if you're like me, your reaction to this was probably the same as your reaction to, really, this entire election cycle…
“Jane, stop this crazy thing! Jane!”
Sorry George, there's no stopping this crazy, out-of-control ride.
So is Trump correct that China is "raping" the United States?
Well, some are pointing out that perhaps Trump is being a tad insensitive in his use of descriptors.
But the United States does have a huge trade deficit with China.
In 2015, the US bought $480 billion worth of Chinese goods.
That's about one-fifth of all US imports.
But the US only sold about $115 billion of goods to China last year.
And that marked the biggest annual trade deficit with China ever.
