Washington Free Beacon editor-in-chief Matthew Continetti said the effects of the trade war on unemployment numbers are critical for President Donald Trump's re-election chances.
Continetti appeared on a Fox News' Special Report panel with USA Today's bureau chief Susan Page and Wall Street Journal columnist Jason Riley to discuss the ongoing trade war between the United States and China.
Host Bret Baier played a clip of Trump earlier this month, where he told a rally his administration will be "taxing the hell out of China."
"We've been losing hundreds of billions of dollars a year to China. It has to stop and they understand that. President Xi is a good man. He's a friend of mine," Trump said. "He understands that and until such time, as there is a deal, we will be taxing the hell out of China."
Baier then asked Page whether Xi is a friend or an enemy, referring to Trump's tweet earlier Friday morning asking whether his Federal Reserve Chairman Jay Powell or Xi is the "bigger enemy."
