The idea that China is an currency manipulator seems to a political move by the administration to justify the tariffs. Neither the IMF nor the treasury departments own reports agreed.
China has been manipulating currency for decades; that's how they built their entire economy.
There are some things in life that simply are, and cannot be changed. Winters are cold in Russia. Sean Hannity is a Republican. Bears are dangerous. And China manipulates their currency.
If you can't even admit to something that has been common knowledge for 50 years, there is no way to continue this debate.
