By importing cheaper goods it would force American factory workers out of jobs. They make them at a much cheaper price, and many are of an inferior quality as well so they need to be replaced more often guaranteeing more work for China.

It goes way back to the late 1800's/early 1900's when China had what the world wanted...silk, tea,gun powder, spices, etc. so the western world traded silver, until China had so much silver it didn't want to trade any more. Then the western world got the Chinese addicted to Opium and the Chinese traded back the silver for opium. Now Hong Kong and other ports returned to the control of China who now hold their debts and the western world wants their cheap labor and once again they have nothing to offer China. And so, China holds America (Western World) by the short and curlies.
It's not just the cheap labor that makes trading with China unfair. They put very high taxes on our products we trade that makes it near impossible for their people to purchase. Clinton also did a treasonous deal with China when he gave them our missile secrets on the promise they would use this technology to launch weather satellites but instead they are now able to launch bombs on our cities from afar. He was told not to make this deal from his own advisors but went ahead due to the money he personally made off the deal. Now China has bombs aimed at us, loans us money we will never be able to pay back in full, is building their military with that money while we downsize ours, so we all better learn to speak Chinese because they own us.
