美國總統特朗普(Donald Trump)在社交網站引述美國富商森姆澤爾(Sam Zell)的話,借此批評中國,其中指美國已承受了半個世紀的「關稅恐怖主義(Tariff Terrorism)」,強調要強硬對中國。

特朗普在Twitter轉載森姆澤爾接受財經頻道CNBC訪問時的內容,內容提到中方在談判時擅長甚麼都不接受,對付中國的態度需要非常強硬。

而森姆澤爾在訪談中,讚揚特朗普正在強硬應對中方,最終或會得出比預期好的解決方案。

森姆澤爾又在訪問中表示,美國在貿易上被施以「關稅恐怖主義」50年,他形容特朗普展開美中貿易談判之餘,亦可能令實行嚴厲保護主義的歐洲反思,強調美國要作出改變,美方經濟不能一直令外國得益。

以下是特朗普引述森姆澤爾的訪問內容:

“The Chinese are very adept at not accepting anything. You’ve got to be very tough, and that’s what Trump is doing. It’s in China’s interest to correct, and I think we’ll end up with a solution that’s dramatically better than we have today. 

Frankly, I think the impact of what Trump is doing to China is not lost on the rest of the world. Europe has had among the most protectionist policies forever. They’re sitting there and saying, gee, are we next? Maybe you are! We’ve got to change the rules. The U.S. can’t defend the world and pay for it.

We can’t have a system where we run our entire economy for the benefit of other countries, which have long charged us big tariffs. Don’t keep ducking the reality. The U.S. has been subject to Tariff Terrorism for 50 years. But a real deal can be done.” Sam Zell 

據了解,森姆澤爾是芝加哥房地產大亨,被譽為房產界的「山姆大叔」。他被指擁有50億美元資本凈值。
