40 years of US-China relations have been good for the US

US consumers have benefited from trade between both countries and will be the biggest losers of a reactionary trade policy. The 2019 State Export Report[ix] released by the US-China Business Council states that exports to China have supported more than 1.1 million American jobs over the past decade. The symbiotic trade relationship has also made a vast array of consumer goods available to many Americans, and we have already seen how a trade war makes those goods more expensive.
