Amid the noise and tumult, including the crazy tweets about Amazon and Mexico, let's be honest – on one big, fundamental point, President Donald Trump is right: China is a trade cheat.In measured prose and great detail, it lays out the many ways that China has failed to enact promised economic reforms, backtracked on others and uses formal and informal means to block foreign firms from competing in China's market.Washington approached China's entry into the world trading system no differently than with other countries who joined in the mid-20th century.Singapore had 2.2 million people and a GDP of $19 billion when it joined the GATT (the precursor to the WTO), while South Korea had 30 million people and a GDP of $41 billion.And then came China, with 1.3 billion people and a GDP of almost $2.4 trillion when it joined the WTO in 2001 . The most extensive cyberwarfare waged by a foreign power against the United States is not done by Russia but by China.Getting tough on China is a case where I am willing to give Trump's unconventional methods a try.
