US, China agree to delay January 1 tariff hike

Gen. Keane: U.S.-China Trade Truce Is 'A Step in the Right Direction' for Trump

For their part, Trump and White House officials have promoted the apparent US-China agreement in Buenos Aires as a historic breakthrough that would ease trade tensions and potentially reduce tariffs - even though Beijing has not confirmed that it made most of the concessions that the Trump administration has claimed.

Trump agreed Saturday to postpone USA tariff hikes in a fight over technology by 90 days while the two sides negotiate.

The market is closed Wednesday as the United States celebrates a National Day of Mourning for the late President George H.W. Bush, whose funeral will held at the Washington National Cathedral.

During the meeting on Saturday, Xi and Trump agreed to suspend any new tariffs and take steps to address the trade disputes, which over the past few months had threatened to spill over into a trade war between the world's two largest economies. If the administrations don't reach an agreement on the matters in the next 90 days, tariffs will rise to 25%.

Another significant take-away from the preliminary agreement could be its impact on energy markets, both US oil import to China and perhaps even more importantly from a development perspective liquefied natural gas (LNG) imports. We make the finest and cleanest product in the World, and that is what China wants.

Mr Trump has said China is supposed to start buying agricultural products immediately and cut its 40 per cent tariffs on USA vehicle imports.

The president was back on Twitter early Wednesday morning with a new series of tweets - this time promoting his faith in his Chinese deal, which he made after a two and a half hour dinner with Xi on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Argentina.

During the talks in Buenos Aires, Trump agreed to delay a scheduled escalation in US tariffs on many Chinese goods, from 10 percent to 25 percent, that had been set to take effect January 1.

China, for its part, also agreed to offset its massive trade imbalance with the U.S.by buying more, but not yet specified amounts, of energy products, agricultural, industrial and other products.

The Globe and Mail newspaper, citing law enforcement sources, said she is accused of trying to evade US curbs on trade with Iran. A person familiar with the matter told Reuters she faces extradition on charges related to us sanctions violations.


Those remarks were echoed by President Trump himself, . who noted his good personal relationship with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping in a tweet on Monday.

"When people or countries come in to raid the great wealth of our nation, I want them to pay for the privilege of doing so".

Daimler chairman Dieter Zetsche told reporters that additional US investments are contingent on conditions remaining the same.

If the move is indeed true, it would be a positive one as the automotive industry has suffered the consequences of the growing U.S.

German automakers said after the meeting they told Trump they planned to boost US investments, but warned they would be unable to do so if the administration imposed new tariffs.

His appointment of Mr Lighthizer to lead the talks instead of Mr Mnuchin puts one of the administration's toughest China critics in charge. "When it comes to anything associated with him, especially deals, things can't just be good, they have to be best".
