President Trump, “Trade Deal Possible With China’s Xi, Tariffs Could Be Lowered”



FLASH: Investors and Traders in a Wait & See mode for the G-20 Summit this weekend

Wednesday, President Trump said that a trade deal with Chinese President Xi is possible this weekend, but he is prepared to impose US tariffs on virtually all remaining Chinese imports if the 2 countries continue to disagree.

President Trump departed for the G-20 Summit in Osaka Japan on Wednesday.

He raised the possibility that he may impose a lower, 10% duty on a $300-B list of Chinese imports, instead of the proposed 25% rate.

President Trump is expected to meet with President Xi Saturday in Osaka to discuss and perhaps resolve the trade dispute or move closer to a joint resolution.

“It’s absolutely possible … We have to get a good deal,” Trump said in an interview with Fox Business Network. “It’s possible that we’ll make a deal but I’m also very happy where we are now.”

Trump said Chinese leaders “want to make a deal. They want to make a deal more than I do.”
