China has been accused by the Republican front-runner that it is “raping” US economy with its unfair trade policies.
In a rally at Indiana, Donald Trump said that China was “the greatest theft in the history of the world.”
The billionaire is known for occasionally accusing China for manipulating its currency to make its exports competitive.
He said that this practice badly damages the US businesses and the workers as well.
“We can’t continue to allow China to rape our country, and that’s what we’re doing,” he told the campaign rally on Sunday.
“We’re going to turn it around, and we have the cards, don’t forget it,” he added. “We have a lot of power with China.”
One of Mr. Trump’s manifestos is to seal a better deal with China that will help the American businesses and workers to compete.
Some of his other goals include declaring China “a currency manipulator” and stopping “China’s illegal export subsidies.”
Donald Trump has repeatedly used the word “rape” in his campaign to be the Republican Party flag bearer. However, this is the first time he has used the word in the context of China.
Hundreds of protestors confronted him in California on Friday before he gave a speech to the state’s Republican convention. Mr. Trump had to get into the building by the back door.
Some of the things making the protestors angry are his views regarding migration.
Anti-Trump protesters were also out in force during the annual May Day rallies in California.
The month of March saw Trump cancel numerous campaigns as a result of several protestors threatened to disrupt his speeches.
He refers to himself as the Republican “presumptive nominee.”
Hillary Clinton on the other hand, is expected to beat Bernie Sanders to become the Democratic nominee in the November general election.
