U.S. and China Kick Off Comprehensive Dialog Meeting on Trade…

In February U.S. President Donald Trump and China’s President Xi Jinping agreed to a format for ongoing trade discussion and economic dialog.  The outcome of their discussions was a 100 day road map to include way-points for economic dialog.

An outcome from the way-point approach was a showing of good faith with China opening their market to U.S. Beef export and the purchase of U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG), while allowing greater access to its financial services sector to U.S.   However, significant trade imbalance remains and ongoing U.S./China economic dialog was scheduled.

Today Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, USTR Robert Lighthizer and White House Adviser Jared Kushner  attended the next phase US – China Comprehensive Economic Dialog meeting.


*NOTE* after Wilbur Ross delivered his brutally honest remarks the Chinese contingent to the talks cancelled a 5:00pm press conference.

    Transparent: rebalance, fair, equitable, and reciprocal! $305 billion a year! Over 50% of our trade deficit is with China! We need “killers” on our side and by golly, we have them.

      During his campaign speeches Trump promised us that he knew the right people to do the negotiations. He said they weren’t very nice people, but they would have America’s best interest as their goal.

      Well it certainly doesn’t seem like we have pushovers doing the talking… they don’t look that bad to me… but the Chinese may think differently.

    Great video. Very impressive presentation by the Chinese re: dialogue vs. negotiation.

    Loved the easter egg at 11:00 of the video. So funny. Truly MAGA moment with the “work with Trump” agreement confirmation.

    Words I can’t bear hearing any longer are: Bipartisan, Partners, Partnering, Dialogue, Conversations, Comprehensive, “We need to come together”, “Get to the bottom of it”, etc.~~Love Wilbur and Steven even when they are not scintillating speakers, but how in heck did Kushner get a chair at this table? He looks completely confused himself about why he’s there!

      Agree with you Disgusted but even brass knuckles need someone to come together with 🙂

    Ha, at the 14:21 mark someone superimposed Trump’s hair on Ross!

    This is the fight Trump’s been waiting for. Negotiations as warfare to balance trade. We live in amazing times. Trump sets a new standard in American strength and leadership.

    Chinese advocating for mutual trust while they rob us blind by ripping off our patented and copyRIGHTed materials. It’s always a war with them – in their minds. They see no moral advantage to playing fair because they have no moral foundation, or belief in inalienable rights.

    (It’s always bugged me that people pronounce it un-alien-able rights. By saying it this way, people start to subconsciously think that it means not a foreign right or rights for illegal aliens (be them from across the border or the galaxy).

    According to Webster 1828 dictionary, it is to be pronounced un-a-lien-able rights. Now this makes sense to me, not a lien abled (enabled) right. This means that no part of the right can be transferred, sold or taken away.

    So I think I will go with un-a-lien-able rights, not a lien enabled on my rights.)

    (G)rowing state debt piles ‘block Xi’s road to reduced risks’
    “In a report released on Friday, the Beijing-based National Institution for Finance and Development (NIFD), said the “leverage ratio” of the non-financial sector rose to 237.5 per cent at the end of March from 234.2 per at the end of last year.”

    “The rise was due to thriving shadow banking, the institute said…Analysts say the administration’s ability to defuse the country’s debt bomb will be vital for the future of the economy.”

    “According to the NIFD, one-third of new state-firm debt in 2015 was used to repay old loans. At the same time, those firms’ contribution to growth and job creation continued to decline…The report also said local governments were masking their debts in new ways”

    “Standard & Poor’s said last week that Xi’s administration was facing ­“significant obstacles” in reining in credit growth and reducing financial risks…Moody’s downgraded China’s sovereign rating in May, citing concerns about debt problems.”

    One suspects the Trump Economic Negotiating Team is well-aware of China’s obvious looming probs.
