china and japan does not do this anymore the bank of japan does not do this anymore. if they don't do this anymore, then why do they care? how can anyone with a straight face say they will walk away from a major transpacific partnership? because we say to our negotiators, here are the things that we think are important on behalf of american businesses and workers, and we camped curcumin -- we count currency manipulation in that. if you do something, by the way, it ought to be enforceable. i am astounded at the amount of energy going into this to say that this is a poison pill. the reality is, in the house of representatives, there is going to be a lot of need to pick up votes in the house of representatives. i don't know anybody that says that they are voting for it and that they would not own -- ultimately vote. and so it is amazing to me. it is amazing to me that my partner in this is a former u.s. trade representative who supports this and who is saying that this is reasonable and will not interfere with the ability to negotiate. now, as i said before, i would like to go farther

commercial gain is acceptable. even in this case, china has not attempted to justify the allegations. instead, it denied them. this has been a consistent response. a little over a year ago, the chinese government flatly denied reports that unit 61398 was hacking u.s. companies. a spokesman for china's ministry of national defense said chinese military forces have never supported any hacking activities. china also challenged the united states to present hard evidence that could stand up in court that cyber attacks are connected to the chinese military. will, we did. the response? hours after monday's announcement the chinese foreign ministry called the accusations extremely absurd. we are confident that we have the evidence to back up these specific accusations in a court of law. the indictment is particular. we have exposed the faces and names behind the keyboards this in shanghai used to steal from american businesses. this is not conduct that responsible nations within the global economic community should tolerat tolerate. in the united states we believe we are entitled to our prop
