Trump is not against free trade

President Trump is not anti-free trade, he's against the United States being taken advantage of, in trade deals.  It's akin to Ronald Reagan's "trust but verify" in the sense that it's a view that free trade is fine, but only fine if we're sure it really is free going both ways.

It's important to keep in mind that a trade war would hurt China just as much as it would anyone else. Wanting them to play fair is not an unreasonable stance, and showing a bit of teeth is not a bad way to show it.
