Huntsman on China’s currency manipulation

On GPS this week at 10a.m. and 1p.m. EST on CNN, I sit down with Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman. In the video above, he talks about trade with China and its challenges.

    ............Yeah like the US know what China really needs. Go solve your own problems first!
    &&& The US does more of its fair shair of currency manipulation too, what do you call the QE1, QE2 and the possible QE3.
    Hypocrite to the finest degree.

    Fareed confronted Huntsman with the allegations that Romney made about China. Huntsman was extremely diplomatic. The results of this 40 year relationship with China since Nixon's visit can notably be seen in trade – from zero to $400 billions, he hinted. Yet he didn't go into the details about the trade balance. As he's more diplomatic he will be taken more seriously than Romney or Gingrich in the international arena, but the home public wants instant solution to the economic crisis.

    So has China ever been declared as currency manipulator, even under our own law?

    Huntsman is an excellent advocate for the Chinese. In order not to appear hypocritical, he should register as a foreign agent. "Huntsman Corp.’s revenue in China surged 57 percent from 2009 to 2010 during his ambassadorship, almost two decades after its entrance there, data compiled by Bloomberg shows." Just think how much his business would grow in China if he became president.

    I find it rather amusing that Fareed did not delve on the question of the real nuclear threat posed by Israel in the Middle East region?
