Trump is so good that he sold rice to China.

In the business world (I assume elsewhere) we have phrases like "he's so good he can sell ice to an Eskimo".  Well, President Trump is so good he can sell rice to China.

BEIJING (Reuters) - China has opened the door to imports of rice from the United States for the first time ever in what analysts took to signal a warming of relations between the world’s two biggest economies after a frosty year marked by tensions and tit-for-tat tariffs.

The green light from Chinese customs, indicated in a statement posted on the customs authority’s website on Friday, comes in the run-up to talks between the countries in January after U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed to a moratorium on higher tariffs that would affect trade worth hundred of billions of dollars.

It was not immediately clear how much rice China, which sources rice imports from within Asia, might seek to buy from the United States. But the move, which comes after years of talks on the matter, follows pledges from China’s commerce ministry of further U.S. trade openings earlier this week.

Even if it's more of a gesture, it's one hell of a gesture.

The amazing thing is the Chinese make so much that comes in this direction, but think about their population for a moment. Unreal.

For every major industry that returns to the US from China, over a million people lose a job.
China is hurting and Trump knows it, which is why China has to do what he demands.
