Despite harsh words for fellow GOP candidate Ben Carson in recent days and weeks, when asked whether he’ll go after him in the debate tonight, Trump told ABC News today, "No, not at all."
"We'll see what happens," he added. "It'll be loose and flexible. I have no idea what’s going to happen but it will be interesting."
The New York real estate mogul also addressed the policy paper he released this morning targeting the currency of China.
"We're losing $400 billion a year with China in terms of imbalance," Trump said via telephone on “Good Morning America.”
"They're killing us."
Trump, who, in his new book “Crippled America,” called China an “enemy” of the United States and said he plans to bring “fairness” to any new trade deals with China.
"On day one of the Trump administration, the U.S. Treasury Department will designate China as a currency manipulator,” the policy paper reads.
"This will begin a process that imposes appropriate countervailing duties on artificially cheap Chinese products, defends U.S. manufacturers and workers, and revitalizes job growth in America. We must stand up to China’s blackmail and reject corporate America’s manipulation of our politicians. The U.S. Treasury’s designation of China as a currency manipulator will force China to the negotiating table and open the door to a fair – and far better – trading relationship."
Trump’s plan also calls for punishing China for intellectual property violations. "We will enforce stronger protections against Chinese hackers and counterfeit goods and our responses to Chinese theft will be swift, robust, and unequivocal,” the paper reads.
Trump will head to Milwaukee later today for the fourth GOP debate, after campaigning through the weekend in New Hampshire, Iowa, Florida and Texas.
