FOX News is warning Americans that President-elect Donald Trump will not be a friend to China, and will be the country’s first president who will not sign a free trade deal with it.
China has already threatened to sue the United States over a $600 billion trade deal and threatened to retaliate with military action if Washington does not get it.
The new president is expected to sign a sweeping trade deal on Thursday that would give the United Nations the power to approve or veto U.S. trade deals.

We are going to stop China from doing that.
