WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said on Wednesday tariffs are not the right tool to use in the trade dispute with China, although Beijing engages in unfair trade practices.

“I’ve long said I don’t think tariffs are the right way to go,” Ryan told reporters in response to a question about China. “China does steal intellectual property, they do engage in unfair trade practices,” he said.
