LONDONDERRY, N.H. — Republican presidential candidates on the 2024 campaign trail are unwaveringly critical of China, and often of U.S. policy toward the economic giant.

At a town hall in Londonderry, presidential candidate and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie directed the discussion of China toward agriculture and trade, taking a shot at one of his campaign rivals, former President Donald Trump.

Christie told the audience that Trump “said he made the greatest trade deals with China, right? You’ve heard him brag about his trade deals. Do you know, on the agricultural trade deals that he made, China’s only fulfilled one-third of the promises of agricultural products that they were supposed to buy from our farmers? One-third.”
