Ron DeSantis says he will try to revoke China’s trade status if elected president

The Republican presidential candidate and Florida governor Ron DeSantis said on Sunday he would aim to revoke China’s permanent normal trade relations status if he won the White House next year.

“I favor doing that,” DeSantis told Fox News.

“I think we probably need Congress but I would take executive action as appropriate to be able to move us in that direction.”

The Senate voted in 2000 to grant that status to China as it prepared to join the World Trade Organization. Any step to remove it would also need congressional approval. The status is a legal designation in the US for free trade with a foreign nation.
