Trump on China: 'I like the deal we have now'

  • Trump coy on China trade deal before meeting Xi

Just $5 a month.

If that negotiation has averted one trade war, others are brewing with Trump threatening to impose tariffs on foreign auto imports, targeting Europe and Japan in particular. "The only deal would be [that] China has to open up their country to competition from the US". Those tariffs are set to rise from 10% to 25% at the beginning of next year, putting yet another price hike on automakers' plates.

Mr Kapadia said that was because the USA economy appears to be strengthening while Chinese President Xi Jinping "is under pressure as China is reportedly slowing". But based on the tenor of the previous remarks, that comment seemed more geared to an eventual, hypothetical future, not a prediction pegged to the G-20 meeting. "And if it's not made, we will be taking in billions and billions of dollars", said Trump. "We have an opportunity to extend that optimism, break some new ground", Kudlow said. "We're creating tremendous numbers of jobs".

However, Trump told The Washington Post he was waiting for a report on the incident from his national security advisors before making up his mind over whether he would meet Putin.

"If we don't make a deal, then I'm going to put the $267 billion additional on", Mr Trump was also quoted as saying.

"They have to open up China to the United States".

"But I think doing it in a multilateral way would have been a better approach", she said.

Taking the world stage at the G-20 is a welcome relief for Macron, who has faced mass protests at home over rising fuel taxes that are the biggest challenge yet to his presidency.


World leaders began arriving in Buenos Aires on Thursday for the summit of the globe's largest economies, with attention expected to focus on issues including a trade war between the United States and China, a new North American trade deal and the conflict in Ukraine.

The prospect of tariffs of 25 percent on imported autos and parts has sent shockwaves through the auto industry, with both US and foreign-brand producers lobbying against it and warning that national security tariffs on European Union and Japanese vehicles could dramatically raise the price of many vehicles.

"The presence of India in these two key trilaterals is indicative of the country's growing diplomatic and economic profile in the world", official sources said adding, "it is the recognition of India as the global engine of economic growth and its emergence as an important factor of stability in the region". For one thing, China is not keen to upend its entire government-centered development strategy simply to please Trump.

The imported auto tariff, if imposed, will further drag down the number of vehicles manufactured here to 3.26 million units a year and will have a spillover effect on steelmakers and petrochemical companies, which the nation still heavily relies on for growth.

"This meeting is necessary for both sides", Ushakov said.

The South African delegation participating in the G20 Summit will use the platform to promote and strengthen the interests of the country and the African continent, the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (Dirco) said on Thursday. "We hope that the USA can meet China halfway and follow the consensus reached by the two leaders at the telephone conversation to strive for positive outcomes of this summit".

President Donald Trump speaks at a rally for Sen.

The Chinese leader has made similar promises before with little follow-through, drawing the ire of foreign businesses located in China.
