Donald Trump: China 'Under Pressure' to Make a Deal with United States

China TradeMore

Beebe said that could be the consequences of price increases or the psychology around how people make purchasing decisions. It's joining with the already-formed Farmers for Free Trade in a campaign the groups are calling "Tariffs Hurt the Heartland".

"We support President Trump's efforts to reset US-China trade relations, address long-standing inequities and level the playing field", Zheng said.

A survey from AmCham China and AmCham Shanghai found that almost two-thirds of more than 430 US firms in China say the tariffs Trump placed on billions of dollars of Chinese goods this summer have hurt their businesses.

The Trump administration is poised to hit China, America's largest trading partner, with another $200 billion in tariffs.

Some businesses are concerned about rising costs of imported materials; others, particularly farmers, about retaliatory tariffs imposed by China and Europe on USA exports.

The next round is likely to make thousands of products, ranging from dishwashers to Fitbit fitness trackers and food seasonings, more expensive for American consumers.

"We have indeed received an invitation from the USA side".

The Federal Reserve's latest survey of business conditions found rising concerns about the impact of Mr. Trump's tough trade policies. That prompted worries it would use regulatory controls to disrupt US business operations in China.

"The Trump administration should not be mistaken that China will surrender to the USA demands".

Just six percent, meanwhile, said they would consider moving factories to USA soil.


"I suppose that protectionism has just been accepted and "baked into the cake" for the USA vehicle market, and US consumers aren't even aware that Ford and GM have a "cartel" for the US truck market that allows them to charge above-market prices and earn above-market profits for trucks", he said.

So far, the two economic superpowers have imposed tariffs of 25% on more than $50 billion of each other's exports. "There is some economic pain being felt and the US$200 billion would be increasingly painful, which would move them somewhat towards the [Trump] administration".

The tariffs on washing machines have hit consumers. "But we can do so through means other than blanket tariffs". "Likewise, Trump's ill-advised trade war, which started in January when he approved the tariffs on imported washing machines, is really largely a war on Americans".

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin on Wednesday invited Chinese officials to a new round of talks later this month over USA threatened tariffs on Chinese exports worth $200 billion, and a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman told reporters Thursday that Beijing welcomed the invitation.

"We are under no pressure to make a deal with China, they are under pressure to make a deal with us", Trump tweeted.

The Journal reported that the USA reached out because of political pressure on Trump to ease up on trade fights ahead of November's midterm elections. Mr. Trump said the newspaper got it wrong about which side is under pressure to deal.

"Our markets are surging, theirs are collapsing", he wrote.

So far, the United States and China have hit $50 billion worth of each others' goods with tariffs in a dispute over US demands that China make sweeping economic policy changes, including ending joint venture and technology transfer policies, rolling back industrial subsidy programs and better protecting American intellectual property.

"With the $200 billion round of tariffs looming, this is probably the best time for the USA to go back to the table with a "take it or leave it" type of trade demand", Robert Carnell, the chief Asia-Pacific economist at investment bank ING, said in a note.
