US May Not Impose More Tariffs on China

Kudlow Says U.S. and China Talking ‘At All Levels’ on TradeMore

"I think a deal will be made and we will find out very soon", Trump said, noting Beijing's list included 142 items and includes "a lot of the things we asked for".

"We may not have to do that", Trump told reporters at the White House.

"They sent a list of things that they're willing to do, which is a large list, and it's just not acceptable to me yet." he said.

The US president has repeatedly railed against Beijing over intellectual property theft, industrial subsidies, Chinese entry barriers to American businesses and the US trade deficit with China.

US stocks erased losses as investors clung to signs the White House will cool trade tensions with the world's second-largest economy. Equity markets have reacted swiftly to any trade-related headlines in recent days as the threat of additional tariffs on Chinese goods looms. Trump has threatened to impose tariffs on all remaining Chinese imports - about $267-billion more in goods - if Beijing fails to address USA demands. "If there is a deal to be had with China it's a deal that has to be in America's interests....

We are at $250 billion [in tariffs] now; we can more than double that", the vice president warned.

Trump has also threatened to impose tariffs on all remaining Chinese imports, about US$267 billion worth, if Beijing fails to address U.S. demands.

Trump Scoffs at Report North Korea Has Undeclared Nuclear Sites
Marie Harf questioned if North Korea has given anything up, noting that they still have missiles and are just not testing them. Less disputable is that North Korea could quickly assault South Korea, including its capital Seoul, and Japan in a crisis.

At the end of the day, the only way the U.S. is likely to hit the breaks on its stance toward China is if "the voices of the United States big businesses become rowdy enough on the problems that the tariffs are causing", according to Woodward.

Some analysts and officials have raised the possibility that the two presidents could agree to a ceasefire of sorts at the G-20.

The tariff rate on US$200 billion worth of Chinese goods is set to increase to 25 per cent from 10 per cent on January 1. "He talks to people on Wall Street, yes", said the White House Economic Council director.

The president's comments signal the large gap that still remains between the two sides.

Hawks in the administration and some in the USA business community also remain concerned that Xi may draw the US president into a protracted negotiation.

"He was not speaking for the president, nor was he speaking for the administration", Mr Kudlow told CNBC. As a result, administration officials have said they would insist on demonstrable and tangible actions by Beijing before engaging in any talks.

In his earlier remarks on China, Pence seemed to offer criticism and a warning to Beijing when he said that "empire and aggression have no place in the Indo-Pacific".
