Trump on China: ‘I’m Not Ready to Make a Deal’

President Donald Trump Aug. 9 said he was not ready to strike a trade deal with Beijing, criticizing the Chinese regime for manipulating its currency and reneging on its pledges.

“They would like to make a deal. I’m not ready to make a deal,”  Trump told reporters at the White House before his departure for fundraising events in New York.

“China wants to settle this deal. They’ve had the worst year that they’ve had in many, many decades and it’s getting only worse. Thousands of companies are leaving China,” he said.

The next round of trade talks with the Chinese delegation is planned to take place in Washington next month.

When asked if he would cancel the next meeting Trump said, “Maybe, I will see what happens. Right now the talks are scheduled in September. Whether or not they cancel, we’ll see.”

North Korea fires two more short-range ballistic missiles, South Korea says

Uh Oh, China pulls out the "Big Guns" on Trump. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

We all know they told Kim to fire them off, problem is, Kim and Trump have an agreement not to fire intercontinental ballistic missiles, not short range ballistic rockets, and Kim held to that agreement.
Did Kim just snub China?
Well, he did launch a missile at their request, but in truth, he refused to break his personal promise to Trump, so in essence, he did snub China.
No, the article doesn't say that, that is my belief, but I know I'm right. :biggrin:

Appears I'm not the only one that knew Kims launch was done at the bidding of China. But like I said, Kim didn't break his and Trump's agreement.

Trump is right not to play 'Beijing's games' amid escalating NK tensions, China expert says
.

The Chinese were "desperate" to influence relations between the United States and North Korea, Chang added. He told Fox News host Bill Hemmer that the Chinese were likely behind the missile tests and used it as a way of pushing Trump to back down from the intense trade pressure he's been imposing on their economy.

Trump doesn't take kindly to threats. Well, we know how well that worked out, don't Xi? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:



Beijing has urged Washington to cancel the sale of American F-16 fighter planes to Taiwan, vowing sanctions against US companies that take part in the deal in order “to protect [China’s] interests.”
“We demand from the United States to adhere to joint agreements and immediately cancel the supply plan. Otherwise, Washington will have to answer for all the consequences,” Gen Shuang, official representative of China’s Foreign Ministry, said at a news briefing on Wednesday. He stressed that the Taiwan issue relates to purely internal problems of China, and Beijing will firmly defend its interests on the matter, even if it comes to sanctions.

“China will take all possible measures to protect its own interests, including sanctions against US companies that will participate in these arms transfers to Taipei,” he summed up.

The US State Department on Tuesday approved the sale of 66 Lockheed Martin-built F-16 fighter planes to Taiwan. Washington openly admitted that the $8 billion (€7.2 billion) sale serves US economic and national security interests in the region, reasoning that additional arms will help maintain “political stability, military balance, and economic progress” there.
China, which claims Taiwan as part of its territory, strongly objected to the move ahead of its approval. Relations between Beijing and Taipei have been strained since 2016, when current Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen and his pro-independence Democratic Progressive Party came to power. Beijing believes Ing-wen is planning to secure formal independence for the island with help from the United States.

The latest weapons deal is not the first US attempt to arm Taiwan. Last month, the US State Department approved a $2.2 billion (€1.8 billion) arms package to Taipei that includes M1A2T Abrams tanks as well as surface-to-air missiles.

Fuglosi tries to insert herself upon the world stage in an embarrassing move in hopes of derailing Trump's UK Trade deal.

Trump promises "very big trade deal" with U.K. as Brexit deadline looms

President Donald Trump promised Britain Sunday a "very big trade deal" with the U.S. — "bigger than we’ve ever had with the U.K." — and declared British Prime Minister Boris Johnson the "right man" to oversee Brexit, Reuters reports.

The big picture: Trump said Britain leaving the EU would be like losing "an anchor round the ankle," per the BBC. But as the Oct. 31 Brexit deadline looms, it is still unclear whether the United Kingdom can leave the European Union with an agreement in place or, indeed, whether the U.K. will leave the EU. Johnson has vowed it will happen "do or die," but experts warn that leaving without a deal could have catastrophic consequences.

The U.K. is seeking a comprehensive free trade deal with the U.S. post-Brexit, Reuters notes. U.S. officials including Trump’s national security adviser John Bolton envision free-trade deals ahead of a comprehensive trade agreement.
Johnson was meeting with European Council President Donald Tusk Sunday. He's expected to tell Tusk the U.K. would only pay about 9 billion pounds ($11 billion) of the 39 billion-pound liability agreed by former U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May, according to Sky News.
Yes, but: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) have ruled out a trade deal with U.K. if Brexit creates a hard border with Ireland and violates the Good Friday Agreement, which helped bring peace to Northern Ireland in the 1990s. Congress must approve all U.S. trade deals.

Trump Tariffs Tank Asian Equities, Chinese Yuan. China Ready To Negotiate.

President Donald Trump's latest trade war escalation against China appears to have had an immediate effect on Asian markets and the Chinese Yuan, sending both tumbling early on Monday morning.

"China's yuan currency fell to 7.1487 to the dollar, its weakest level since early 2008 at the height of the global financial crisis," AFP reported. "On equity markets, Hong Kong led losses, slumping more than three percent, with investors also spooked by fresh violent protests in the city that saw police use water cannon for the first time. Shanghai lost 1.3 percent and Tokyo ended the morning more than two percent off."

Chinese Vice Premier Liu He indicated early on Monday that the communist nation was willing to negotiate with the U.S. to prevent the trade war from escalating.

Reuters reported that "Liu, China’s top trade negotiator, was speaking at a tech conference in Chongqing in southwest China" when he made the remarks.

On Friday, the U.S. imposed a new round of sanctions against China after China imposed additional tariffs on the U.S.
