Tuesday on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) weighed in on the country’s ongoing trade tensions with China.
Blackburn told host Maria Bartiromo she thinks the United States and China will reach a deal.
“I think we will see a deal, Maria,” she predicted. “And look at how China reacted as soon as the Japan agreement was announced. And knowing that that is there in principal kind of spurs them on.”
She later added, “People are betting on hope, not on fear. And they fully believe that we are going to see something resolved with China. And when you talk to our farmers and ag producers, Japan’s agreement is very focused on agricultural products. And this is going to provide some relief for them.”
