Donald Trump says China sending 'strong signals' of trade cooperation

The summit between President Xi Jinping and his United States counterpart Donald Trump in Argentina was "friendly and candid" and would help to avoid further trade tensions, a senior Chinese diplomat said Thursday, but offered no new details on the talks.

Sources told Reuters that Chinese oil trader Unipec plans to resume buying USA crude by March after the Xi-Trump deal reduced the risk of tariffs on those imports.

China's President Xi Jinping and US President Donald Trump attend a welcome ceremony at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on 9 November 2017.

And Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Tuesday on the Fox Business Network that China agreed to buy $1.2 trillion of USA products, but added, "if that's real" it would close the trade deficit with China and said "we have to have a negotiated agreement and have this on paper".

Aram... so President Trump is calling himself a "Tariff Man...." China had been the largest purchaser of US soybeans, buying $12.25 billion worth of that product in 2017.

Mr Trump said this week on Twitter that Beijing had agreed to "reduce and remove" tariffs the 40% tariffs it places on USA cars.

"One of the very exciting things to come out of my meeting with President Xi of China is his promise to me to criminalize the sale of deadly Fentanyl coming into the United States". Washington, but not Beijing, has also said China will cut import tariffs on American cars.

Chinese businesses routinely ignore existing patent protections to copy or steal technology, which allows Chinese companies to leap forward in their development, a key national goal for Xi.

After describing the agreement made between China and the USA during the G-20 summit in Argentina over the weekend as "an incredible deal" and "one of the largest deals ever made", Donald Trump has done an unsurprising 180 after apparently finally appearing to catch up with reality.

Asked to confirm whether Beijing promised to buy American goods immediately, Gao said China will "immediately implement the consensus reached by the two sides on farm products, cars and energy". This tweet sent stocks plummeting 3% on Monday and the bond market reacted, sending shivers through investors, according to The New York Times.

Donald Trump threatened to slap a range of import penalties on Chinese products if they didn't make major changes in their economic relationship with the US.

A day later, President Trump said on his Twitter that "the negotiations with China have already started" and that the deal will probably happen. -China detente. Chinese pork producer WH Group Ltd., owner of USA -based Smithfield Foods Inc., soared 12 percent. This would have raised prices in the United States on many consumer items, including smartphones, clothes and toys.

At the start of the administration, Trump failed on that front when he pulled the United States out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership - a pact joining 12 major trading economies along the Pacific Rim in a trade agreement created to push back against China's mercantilist behavior.

"The 90-day limit sounds like an ultimatum given by the strong actor to the weak actor", added Fang, a former journalist for the publication Southern Weekly.
