Jon Huntsman Wanted Trump to Step Aside for Pence
Huntsman Gave Away Utah and US Interests to Communist China AND Mexico
HUNTSMAN: I don't subscribe to the Mitt Romney school of international trade. I don't want to find ourselves in a trade war. With respect to China, if you start slapping penalties on them based on countervailing duties, you're going to get the same thing in return because what they're going to say, because of quantitative easing part one and part two, you're doing a similar thing to your currency. And then you're going to find yourself in a trade war very, very quickly. Source: 2011 GOP debate at Dartmouth College, NH , Oct 11, 2011

Huntsman served as Deputy United States Trade Representative for Pres. George W. Bush. "Promoting open markets promotes democratic values in those markets and enhances opportunities for American farmers, workers, entrepreneurs, and families," said Huntsman in a press release at the time. "With the US party to only two of the 130 free trade agreements worldwide, it is crucial to get off the sidelines by launching a new WTO trade round and establishing a Free Trade Area of the Americas. Trade Promotion Authority, the President's top trade goal, is important for both." In 2002, Huntsman called NAFTA "a success beyond anyone's expectations. It has allowed the average family to save in terms of what they pay for goods, products that would otherwise carry a higher cost." Indeed, Huntsman seemed to demonstrate an understanding that free markets lead to economic growth. He said in May of 2011 that imposing tariffs on Chinese imports "would throw us into a depression."
