WASHINGTON, Sep. 24, 2012 (Reuters) — President Barack Obama’s administration should formally declare China a currency manipulator in a semi-annual Treasury Department report due to be released on October 15, a spokesman for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said on Monday.
“Governor Romney believes China should be labeled a currency manipulator – without delaying the report – and he will move to label them as such on Day One,” Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul said in an emailed reply to a query.
Earlier on Monday a spokeswoman for the U.S. Treasury Department declined to say whether the Obama administration would release the politically sensitive report on time or delay it until after the November 6 election. (Reporting By Doug Palmer; editing by Mohammad Zargham)
