According to President Donald Trump, a delegation of US officials will hold negotiations with the Chinese side. He noted that the talks would end 90 days after his meeting with President Xi Jinping at the G20 forum in Argentina.
The negotiations with China have already started. Unless extended, they will end 90 days from the date of our wonderful and very warm dinner with President Xi in Argentina. Bob Lighthizer will be working closely with Steve Mnuchin, Larry Kudlow, Wilbur Ross and Peter Navarro…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 4 декабря 2018 г.
Trump said that the officials would see if the deal with China is possible, adding that Beijing "is supposed to start buying Agricultural product and more immediately."
….I am a Tariff Man. 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. It will always be the best way to max out our economic power. We are right now taking in $billions in Tariffs. MAKE AMERICA RICH AGAIN— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 4 декабря 2018 г.
Beijing and Washington announced a truce in their escalating trade war last week after Trump and Xi met on the side-lines of the G20 summit in Argentina.
In the meantime, according to National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow, China had made a commitment to lift 40-percent tariffs on US vehicles.
