US Relationship With China Good, but Testy

US Relationship With China Good, but Testy

U.S. President Donald Trump and China's President Xi Jinping make joint statements at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China, on November 9, 2017.

President Trump is expected to discuss the trade dispute with Xi when they meet in Japan at the end of the month.

"No, I have no deadline", Trump said when asked if he had a deadline for China to make progress in trade talks before deciding to impose additional tariffs. In a tweet, Trump said on Friday that "The United States of America has reached a signed agreement with Mexico" in which Mexico "has agreed to take strong measures" against illegal immigration into the US.

US President Donald Trump said Wednesday he understands Hong Kong protesters who have risen up against plans to allow extraditions to China but hopes they can "work it out" with Beijing.

Trump accused Beijing of reneging on promises to meet U.S. demands to extend protection of intellectual property, end state-sponsored cyber theft, open more markets to USA firms, and reduce industrial subsidies.

While speaking Monday on CNBC's Squawk Box, Trump said that if Xi did not meet with him at the G20, the US would levy the additional tariffs.

But Chinese Foreign Ministry has not yet confirmed anything in this regard. The president has said he would decide on extra tariffs on Chinese goods after the G-20, which will be held June 28-29 in Osaka.

Trump has alleged that Chinese companies steal US technology and objected to technology transfers that stem from from rules requiring many foreign companies to create a joint venture with Chinese businesses if they want to operate in the country. Since a year ago, the world's biggest economies have exchanged tariffs on around 360 billion USA dollars worth of each other's goods.

Warriors' executive gets choked up talking about Kevin Durant injury
There's going to be some real recriminations for the Warriors as to how they allowed Kevin Durant to return for this game. We all know that, the LA Clippers know that, and the rest of the league knows that as well.

Trump has repeatedly claimed that tariffs are a key tool of negotiations, pointing to his most recent trade scuffle with Mexico. "When I came in that gap was getting very close".

"You can hardly blame anyone else for the conflict between China and the United States - he is the ultimate decision-maker", said Zhang from Peking University.

He also has complained that President Xi enjoys a major advantage in the U.S.

The brinkmanship with China puts Xi - the country's strongest leader in decades - in perhaps the toughest spot of his six-year presidency.

The US President Donald Trump and the big American tech companies have raised the stakes this week in the ongoing Pacific war.

And analysts say China wants to move ahead, but won't cave in either.

But U.S. officials have made it their mission to persuade other governments to avoid working with Huawei, warning that Washington might not share sensitive information with allies if they are using Huawei equipment and networks that the Washington suspects could be compromised.
