China’s trade policy has been a frequent target of the Republican frontrunner. In the past, Trump claimed the country’s currency devaluation would “suck the blood out” of America.
He upped the ante on Sunday at a rally in Indiana.
“We can’t continue to allow China to rape our country,” he told a crowd in Fort Wayne. “That’s what they’re doing. It’s the greatest theft in the history of the world.”
Trump previously has come under fire for using offensive or degrading language.
