Nearly three-quarters of Americans support some form of trade restrictions on China, a sign that the two countries' long-standing commerce arrangements may be coming to an end due to the coronavirus pandemic.
According to a Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen, 70% of respondents said the United States should make at least some alterations to its trade agreements with China. Eleven percent called for an all-out ban, while 41% said U.S. should "reduce our reliance" on trade with that country. Eighteen percent said the U.S. should demand compensation for the pandemic before normal trading should resume.
World health officials have determined that China severely mismanaged its initial handling of the outbreak and said that if the country had acted sooner and with international cooperation it could have cut the extent of the pandemic by huge margins.
