During his campaign for the White House, Donald Trump spoke critically against the current state of trade between China and the United States.

Now as president-elect, Trump's harsh critiques on U.S.-China trade relations have been met with mixed reponses both from the U.S. and the global economy. Some economists and trade specialists, in fact, have signaled that a potential fallout with China could result in a trade war.
