At Tuesday's The Washington Post/Bloomberg Republican presidential debate, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum declared that he actually wanted "to go to war with China."

Fellow candidate Mitt Romney promised that if elected, he would immediately label China as a currency manipulator, but added, "I don't want a trade war with anybody."

"You know, Mitt, I don't want to go to a trade war," Santorum remarked. "I want to beat China. I want to go to war with China and make America the most attractive place in the world to do business."
