China grain traders await lower tariffs before USA return

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

But no substantial purchases can happen with a 25 percent duty still in place on USA soybeans, corn, sorghum and wheat, said buyers and analysts.

"If it is, we will get it done".

"When people or countries come in to raid the great wealth of our Nation, I want them to pay for the privilege of doing so", he said.

President Trump's economically illiterate trade commentary won't help - and is driving American allies to ramp up their own trade barriers to retaliate. They wouldn't even acknowledge that there was a 90-day deadline under which they were operating.

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

With the pause in place, . the 90-day period begins on January 1st, . with the two countries expected to continue talks throughout that period.

The sources said the Chinese were surprised by the decision, having dealt mainly with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on trade issues in the past.

A White House official said it started on December 1.

Trump raised the stakes on those pledges, saying in a tweet that he expects China to start buying more agricultural products "immediately".

While tariffs alone shouldn't destroy the economy, they certainly add weight to the burden of other problems: falling oil prices, slowing real estate markets, the flattening of the yield curve thanks to "hawkish" comments from the Federal Reserve, and the sinking stock market.

"I think there'd be quite a burst in shipments of small, less-expensive Korean cars to China, and also of parts, that's another big part of auto trade", he said.




As such, Trump was keen to reassure United States farmers that the negotiations with China would benefit them.

"You don't do this with the Chinese".

But despite the uncertainty and threats, Trump also said he was open to signing an agreement if one is reached between Chinese and U.S. negotiators.

The move was confirmed on Monday by White House trade advisor Peter Navarro, . who called Lighthizer Washington's "toughest negotiator". "Nobody is under any illusions".

But Mnuchin said, "I think there's no question the president's tariff strategy has worked". Trump has not promised to lift all tariffs against Chinese goods.

It also said China had agreed to start buying farm products from U.S. farmers immediately. "The most important thing is those structural changes that have to be met".

The economic agreementTrump said he reached with Chinese leader Xi Jinping on Saturday showed signs of unravelling by Tuesday.

Both sides will immediately hold talks on structural changes concerning forced technology transfers made by Chinese firms on US companies, intellectual property rights protection, non-tariff trade barriers, cyber intrusion concerns, cyber theft and agricultural, the White House added.

But here's what is particularly concerning: numerous issues around which negotiations will now revolve-above all the theft-by-hacking of intellectual property-are issues where China denies being at fault, and where a meaningful resolution would involve China proving that it has changed its practices.

CHINESE PURCHASES OF US GOODS The White House said China will agree to purchase a not yet agreed upon, but very substantial, amount of agricultural, energy, industrial, and other products from the United States.

White House National Security Adviser John Bolton told the Wall Street Journal event on Tuesday that Chinese theft of USA intellectual property was among the administration's top concerns.
