What Trump Expects by Giving China a 90-Day Tariffs Break

Most particularly, one of the results of the G20 is that US President Donald Trump backtracked on plans of raising tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese products from 10 percent to 25 percent starting from January 1, 2019, stressing the necessity of talks with Beijing and threatening to persist with his plans if they don't move any further.

The Republican president indicated he would not be opposed to extending the 90-day truce he and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed to over the weekend.

The president's Treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, told reporters Monday that there will be "specific changes right away" to help the agricultural industry, even as the majority of the tentative agreement remains to be worked out over a 90-day-period agreed upon between the US and China.

"I have no assurances" China will change, Kudlow said, speaking at an event hosted by the Wall Street Journal.

Around the same time, Donald Trump announced slapping 25 percent tariffs on $50 billion worth of imported Chinese goods, and Beijing responded in kind, boycotting purchases of USA agricultural produce, among others.

-China trade war, only to fall sharply on Tuesday as presidential tweets and contradictory messages from senior administration officials indicated that the "deal" might be less firm than previously thought. "I'm taking President Xi at his word, at his commitment to President Trump". The Chinese have not acknowledged a 90-day deadline for the talks or said that they plan to "immediately" increase purchases of United States farm goods.

Another layer of uncertainty over the talks has been a lack of commitment by the Chinese to broker a deal within a 90-day window announced by the United States, commencing from the date of the dinner. But if not remember I am a Tariff Man, Trump wrote.

"Every time we covered this kind of bilateral meeting we had no detailed information from the Chinese side", she said, adding that Chinese media were only allowed to publish the reports of state news agency Xinhua.

"If it is we will get it done".

The only actual achievement so far, apart from a commitment to talk, was China's winning of an extension of the window before the proposed increase in the tariffs cuts in, which also pushes back the point at which Trump's threat to impose tariffs on China's remaining $US267 billion of exports to the U.S. might be imposed.

In a series of tweets, Trump celebrated the opening of negotiations between China and the US. USA soybean deliveries to China, for instance, have decreased by 98 percent this year, according to Yahoo Finance.

The U.S. leader said U.S. farmers "will be a very BIG and FAST beneficiary of our deal with China".

That approach so far has amounted to slapping tariffs on US$250 billion (NZ$361 billion) of Chinese imports and vowing to impose penalties on all other imports if China doesn't make changes. "But as he found out with Mexico, Canada and now China, trade is more than the sum of goods and services exchanged between nations".

However, there are differences in both countries' official accounts of what was agreed.

Otherwise, China - which has been incredibly protective of its own domestic auto industry, and probably doesn't want competition from other countries - could create a special tariff line in its itemized tariff system, meaning it would invent a new line that would only specifically apply to autos produced in the U.S.
