The Obama administration this week may have to fend off a fight with Democratic allies in Congress who are angry about what they say is China's refusal to end trade-distorting policies and who are threatening reprisals that businesses fear could start a trade war.
"The Obama administration and its Bush predecessor have lacked the political will to stop currency cheats like China," Mr. Blum said.
