U.S-China trade war nears productive.

Published

Source: Reuters- U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday said he had not promised Chinese President Xi Jinping a reprieve from escalating tariffs in a trade war that is casting a shadow on global growth, but felt their talks planned for the next day would be productive.

Beijing, for its part, said it hoped Washington would meet halfway to settle a bitter trade feud that, along with signs of a global slowdown, has loomed over a two-day Group of 20 summit that began in Japan’s western city of Osaka.

China and the United States are locked in a trade dispute and expectations have dimmed that Trump and Xi can ease tension when they meet on the sidelines of the meeting.

“At a minimum it will be productive. We’ll see what happens and what comes out of it,” Trump told reporters after a series of meetings with leaders where he made clear that his priority was two-way trade deals to boost the U.S. economy.

Asked, however, if he had promised Xi a six-month reprieve on imposing new tariffs on a $300 billion list of nearly all remaining Chinese imports, Trump said “No”.

Trump has imposed tariffs on $250 billion of Chinese imports and is threatening to extend those to another $300 billion of goods, effectively everything China exports to the United States. China has retaliated with tariffs on U.S. imports.
