China Trade Barriers and Tariffs to come down according to Trump and they are buying massive amounts of Farm/Agricultural Products

China trade barriers

President Trump said today that China trade barriers and tariffs will come down. Trump also indicated that the Chinese are set to buy massive amounts of farm/agricultural products.

Trump tweeted “China has agreed to buy massive amounts of ADDITIONAL Farm/Agricultural Products-would be one of the best things to happen to our farmers in many years!”

The US has been having on going negotiations with the Chinese concerning the trade imbalance. President Trump made it clear from the the time he began holding rallies that he felt the US was getting screwed in trade deals made by past administrations.

 

Current discussions involve the three following issues.

*The US will put a hold on tarrifs for 150 million dollars in Chinese goods. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the tariffs, which were imposed as punishment for alleged Chinese theft of US intellectual property, were “suspended” but could be reimposed.

*China promised to increase the purchase of US agricultural and energy products of which today’s announcement of farm and agricultural products is a part. Mnuchin told Fox News on Sunday that China will increase its purchases of US agricultural products by 35% to 40% over the next year but did not offer details. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross will work out those details during a future trip to China, Mnuchin said.

*China promised to “substantially reduce the United States trade deficit in goods with China.” The US currently runs a $375 billion annual goods trade deficit with China, the largest such imbalance with any country.

President Trump will no doubt be criticized and doubted for his efforts to negotiate with the Chinese. But make no mistake about it China trade barriers and tariffs will come down. Do not doubt Trump. Why will they come down? Because he asked. No recent President has had the balls to ask.
