Donald Trump Demands 'REAL DEAL' with China Despite Shaken Stock Market

NEXT				PREV

The ministry's statement came after the U.S. president, Donald Trump, called himself "a Tariff Man" on Twitter and warned more levies could be imposed on China.

Among the conflicting assertions that White House officials made was over whether China had actually agreed to drop its 40% tariffs on USA autos. That, coupled with conflicting statements by Trump and USA officials, helped trigger a tumble in US stock prices Tuesday amid doubt about the chances for a lasting settlement of a battle over technology that threatens to chill global economic growth.

A statement from an unnamed Chinese official said only that the negotiations with the US had a "clear timeline and road map" that China aimed to implement.

A Chinese official told Reuters officials were "waiting for the leaders to return" before publicizing details. The ministry didn't respond to questions by phone and fax.

US President Donald Trump threatened on Friday (22 June) to impose a 20% import tariff on all cars manufactured in the European Union if recent sanctions the bloc slapped on Washington are not "broken down and removed", continuing the tit for tat trade war with America's nominal allies.

But Kudlow said the ultimate amount will depend on market prices and the health of China's economy. "But if not remember, I am a Tariff Man", the commander-in-chief wrote about the agreement.

Be patient, said Ma Hong, a trade expert at Tsinghua University in Beijing.

"The United States has put forward many demands, not all of them reasonable", he said.

Zetsche said it is "impossible" to build all vehicles sold in the United States because of small volumes of small luxury cars. And China has not confirmed that it made most of the concessions that the Trump administration has claimed.

Details regarding China's pledge to buy more American products - one that it has made before - remain scant.

Canadian officials announced Wednesday that Meng Wanzhou, Huawei's chief financial officer and the daughter of the company's founder, was detained in Vancouver last Saturday on suspicion of trying to evade USA sanctions on Iran. They criticize Washington's tactics but share its complaints.

Mueller says ex-Trump campaign chairman Manafort lied to Federal Bureau of Investigation
Cevallos said the special counsel likely had evidence to prove Manafort - or possibly even the president - lied to investigators. He'll be sentenced in February in his criminal case in Virginia, which he took to trial and lost.

Daimler chairman Dieter Zetsche told reporters that additional United States investments are contingent on conditions remaining the same.

"The uncertainty caused by the whipsawing of his trade stance means that business investment will be delayed or canceled, marginal hiring decisions will be postponed and potential overseas business partners will look elsewhere", Shepherdson said.

The two countries didn't issue a joint statement with a framework for talks.

There was reportedly no document signed by the two sides following their meeting in Argentina. China has responded to Washington's list of demands, though it is unclear what Beijing said.

The S&P 500 lost more than 3 percent on Tuesday, after rallying the day before on the hope of a deal with China.

For its part, China has said it will import more U.S. products to reduce its trade surplus, but no dollar amount has been publicly discussed. It also would begin buying products from U.S. farmers "immediately". The slew of Trump tweets prompted markets to fall as investors lost faith in a detente between the two nations.

That prompted some economists to ask whether Beijing was presenting a positive image for Chinese audiences or didn't understand the depth of American opposition to its technology plans.

US stocks took a dive Tuesday as trade talks between the world's largest economies appeared to again hit a stalemate.

If Trump proceeds with the additional tariffs he has threatened, the Tax Foundation analyst Erica York estimates that middle-income households would lose an additional $453.

President Donald Trump (R) and China's President Xi Jinping (L) along with members of their delegations, hold a dinner meeting at the end of the G20 Leaders' Summit in Buenos Aires, on December 01, 2018.

Behind Beijing's apparent caution may also be a whiff of fear that the truce might not last, said Andrew Gilholm, of the consultancy Control Risks. President Xi Jinping and his most senior officials, including the commerce minister and the country's two top diplomats, are in Portugal, and due back in China on Thursday.
