US doesn't need a trade deal with China before the 2020 election
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 21 - 09 - 2019

President Donald Trump said he doesn't think he needs to strike a trade deal with China before the 2020 presidential election.
"No, I don't think I need it before the election," Trump told CNBC's Eamon Javers during a news conference at the White House alongside Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
"I think people know that we're doing a great job," Trump said, referencing his administration's work on the economy and the military. "China's being affected very badly. We're not, we're not being affected," he said.
His relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping is strong, Trump added, but "we have, right now, a little spat."
Trump also said he didn't want a "partial deal" with Beijing, moving away from his suggestion last week that he would consider an "interim deal."
"We're looking for a complete deal. I'm not looking for a partial deal," Trump said.
The president's support for the all-or-nothing stance on the potential deal with China came amid recent signs of a thaw in tensions between the two countries.
To be sure, a deal with China that addresses intellectual property theft, forced transfers of technology and the U.S. trade deficit with China is far from guaranteed. And markets are still uneasy about the trade war: Stocks turned negative Friday after the Montana Farm Bureau said that a Chinese delegation had canceled an upcoming U.S. farm visit to the state, for instance. The agriculture delegation also canceled its visit to Nebraska, according to that state's Department of Agriculture.
Still, with trade talks set to restart in earnest next month, both sides have taken some steps to walk back some of their most drastic moves in the tit-for-tat trade war.
China last week added some U.S. agricultural products, such as soybeans and pork products, to its list of tariff exemptions. Beijing had moved to halt new agricultural purchases from the U.S. — and possibly put tariffs on the goods it had recently bought — just last month.
CNBC also confirmed Friday that the U.S. is temporarily exempting more than 400 types of Chinese imports from tariffs that Trump had imposed last year.
Trump said in a tweet last week that China "will be buying large amounts of our agricultural products!" He reiterated Friday that "China has been starting to buy our agricultural product."
But that isn't enough on its own, Trump added at the news conference. "That's not what I'm looking for. I'm looking for the big deal," he said.
