Trump goes sure-footed towards his goal. The United States will get up to $500 billion annually due to the increase in duties on imported goods from China.
“Keep America great!” - this is Donald Trump’s new slogan for the new 2020 election race. Go deep down: “The United States does not intend to lose even 10 cents in trade with China.” It is hard to escape a conclusion: there will be a trade deal - it is good, if it doesn’t - it is also good. Along with this Trump considers still Xi Jinping “a terrific person”.
It is stated that American companies are already leaving China due to unfavorable conditions for doing business, as well as the undervalued rate of the Chinese national currency - the yuan.
Trump stands his ground: "America will not allow China to steal jobs and technology."
Readiness to meet with the U.S. president in Osaka was finally announced by Xi Jinping. Apparently, Trump's promise to increase duties on goods at $300 billion did have an effect if during the upcoming G20 meeting his talks with the Chairman of the State Council of China did not take place. The increase will be 25 percent or even "higher", as U.S. president warned.
