US President Donald Trump showed his tendency to stick tariffs more than the implementation of a traditional business deal, stressing that there was no need to rush to reach a trade deal with China

Trump described the definitions as easier and faster implementation
Trump also stressed that the talks with the Chinese side were proceeding in a “very homogenous” manner and that there was no need to rush. “Customs duties on goods and imports are now being paid at $ 250 billion and 25 percent go directly to the Treasury
The United States began implementing Trump’s decision to increase tariffs on imports from China worth $ 200 billion from 10 percent to 25 percent
The US president said that according to those tariffs, farmers will play their roles better and faster and that Washington will be able to help countries that are being subjected to famine
Trump stressed that it would not allow the repetition of what has been happening over years of trade with China, which is the loss of 500 billion dollars annually
“If we buy agricultural products from our farmers for $ 15 billion more than China does at the moment, then we will have more than $ 85 billion left to be directed to infrastructure, health care or anything else,” he said
Trump stressed that if this is done, the US economy will accelerate as the Chinese economy slows
Trump also stressed that they would continue to negotiate with China on hopes that Beijing would not again try to renegotiate deals with the United States in the last minute, saying: “This is not the Obama administration LINK
