Background and Context of Debate:

China has become a point of contention between Mitt Romney and John Huntsman. Huntsman complained that Romney and Donald Trump would cause a trade war. Romney shrugged off this saying, "China is selling us $273 billion per year more than America is selling China — why would it possibly want a trade war?" Typically Republicans promote free trade, and democrats promote fair trade. This is an example of Mitt Romney going to the left of his republican rivals and president Obama, and reach out and find common ground with those who fear he is too much in favor of free trade, as a former CEO.
