In Trump’s trade war with China, Latin America is especially vulnerable

U.S. President Donald Trump says a deal with China will

"My expectation is that we will go to Beijing at some point in the near future to continue those discussions", he said. We have always claimed we are reliable, consistent and trustworthy, and today we are demonstrating anything but that.

The U.S. imported nearly $540 billion in Chinese goods in 2018, while the U.S. exported $120 billion, a trade imbalance that Trump is seeking to even out with imposition of the tariffs.

The piece claimed, 'Particularly in today's world, the Chinese market is huge and very close to the USA market in size, and the trend is [we] will overtake the U.S'. To the extent that the USA wants China to buy more United States goods and narrow its trade surplus, to curb intel-lectual property abuses and to open up its service sector, an eventual agreement looks possible.

Congressional Republicans are reluctantly backing President Trump's trade war with China, even as they acknowledge that two years of brinkmanship over tariffs threaten to take a toll on the administration's energy dominance agenda.

"I happen to think that tariffs for our country are very powerful".

"Hopefully China will do us the honor of continuing to buy our great farm product, the best, but if not your Country will be making up the difference", he wrote in post addressing USA farmers directly.

China has announced it will in increase its tariffs on $60 billion worth of US goods in retaliation to Trump's announcement of higher tariffs on $200 billion worth of China's exports to the United States.

Trump previous year pledged up to $12 billion in aid to farmers - chiefly soybean, wheat and corn growers, and those who raise pigs.

That paved the way for a positive start for the European trading session, with stock markets in London, Frankfurt and Paris 0.6% to 0.9% higher, while US stock futures rallied. With the new tariffs in place in May, we can expect May's numbers to be worse.

And although he said he has an "extraordinary" relationship with Chinese leader Xi Jinping, Trump insisted he will not sign onto any deal unless it is a good one.

United States refuses to endorse Jacinda Ardern's 'Christchurch Call' to tackle online extremism
In a New York Times opinion column Saturday, Ardern wrote of the balance that must be struck: " Social media connects people". She said she herself inadvertently saw the Christchurch attacker's video when it played automatically in her Facebook feed.

The statement follows the Chinese announcement on 13 May of its decision to hike tariffs on $60 billion of U.S. imports starting in June.

USTR said it would hold a public hearing on the tariff list on June 17, with final comments due as little as seven days later.

Mobile phones and laptops would be included in that list but pharmaceuticals would be excluded, the office said.

USA 10-year Treasury yields, however, edged away from Monday's six-week lows, thanks to the slightly brighter tone.

Most politicians on all sides do agree that China has been taking advantage of the United States for decades when it comes to opening up their markets.

Last year, the USA began imposing tariffs to pressure China to drop the aggressive tactics.

"Let's be blunt: it's a tax on the American consumer and the American manufacturer. who's paying about $1.4 billion a month in new tariffs", Democratic Senator Chris Coons said in an interview with MSNBC on Tuesday. S&P 500, American stock market index, shifted to 3.8 percent while the Chinese CSI 300, sinked to 6.9 percent.

Earlier the Chinese foreign ministry accused the USA administration for forcing Beijing to increase the volume of goods it was willing to buy from the United States as part of an agreement, violating terms struck in December.

The Trump administration has for months tried to persuade allies not to allow China a role in building next-generation 5G mobile networks, warning that doing so would result in restrictions on sharing of information with the United States. "As for how they are pursued, I think that hinges upon further consultations between the two sides", Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a daily news briefing, without giving details.
