Trump on a hard stance while the US and China meet for talks




The US and China officials met in Shangai for trade talks in an attempt to stop the trade-war while Trump is talking tough on the matter.

Trump accused China of stalling and threatened for the worse if it continues to do so while treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer landed in Shanghai to meet Vice Premier Liu He at Xijao State Guest Hotel.

The officials did not make any public remarks.

The trade war between the two countries is putting a strain on the global economy disrupting and shaking the financial markets and the meeting was expected to focus on the ‘goodwill’ as China committed to purchasing US agricultural commodities in exchange for the US to ease the sanctions on tech equipment like Huawei.

However, Trump took on Twitter to say that China is not hilding up to its promises to buy US farm goods and accused Bejing of stalling, waiting for Trump to lose the 2020 presidential elections.

Trump said: “The problem with them waiting … is that if & when I win, the deal that they get will be much tougher than what we are negotiating now … or no deal at all,” China replied that the US negotiators should have ‘reasonable expectations’ and less ‘unrealistic demands’.

Trump during his meeting last month with Xi Jinping, agreed to allow some sales to Huawei without following up on the promise, however, Wilbur Ross, US Commerce Secretary, said that some sales to Huawei could come next week
