US Steel is tumbling after Trump does a 180 on trade (X)

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin talks with reporters about trade with China outside of the White House May 21 in Washington

But it isn't seen as a panacea to the months-long conflict. "The fundamental differences on trade and other economic issues remain unresolved".

He anxious that the China hawks, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Trade Policy Director Peter Navarro, would undo progress forged by Mr. Mnuchin.

This would help level the playing field between China and not only the US but other trading partners that take issue with China, including European Union members. After China responded with its own tariffs on USA agriculture, Trump threatened to impose duties on an additional $100 billion of Chinese goods, a move that hit global stock markets hard due to fears of rising protectionism.

Mnuchin and White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross would soon go to Beijing to negotiate on how China might buy more American goods to reduce the huge U.S. trade deficit with Beijing, which a year ago totaled $375 billion. Kudlow, appearing Sunday on ABC, said that the $200 billion reduction target "interests the president a lot" and that both US and Chinese negotiators have used that figure in the discussions "as a rough ballpark estimate".

Mnuchin said the actions China has agreed to take as part of the framework the two countries have reached will result in boosting sales of US farm products to China by 35 to 40 percent in this year alone.

Trump announced the duties of 25 percent on imported steel and 10 percent on aluminium in March, but has twice accepted to suspend their effect as talks with key allies continued. It's hard to imagine a peace deal with North Korea without the involvement of China, Kim's most important political and economic ally.

President Donald Trump just did a 180 on trade with China, and steel stocks are under pressure. In their efforts to save the party's majorities in the House and Senate, Republicans will lean hard on Trump after his fiery anti-China rhetoric and promises to help the working class in states like OH and Pennsylvania resonated with voters.

"While no great specifics were made on a deal, [Mnuchin's] comment does reduce the potential for trade to be a major bearish influence", said Tom Essaye, founder of The Sevens Report, an investment research firm, in a market newsletter Monday. "Nothing less than the future of tens of millions of American jobs is at stake".

EU To Trump: Stop Threatening Us With Tariffs
Tel Aviv has been eyes and ears and not Europe in making Trump frame his mind about Iran as the non-trustworthy country. In the meanwhile, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said he hoped Iran would stay in the agreement.

However, trade ministers from the bloc's 28 member states will discuss a plan laid out by EU leaders for a limited EU-US trade deal as well as opening up the European market to US natural gas - if the exemption is granted.

"We're seeing companies that do more of their business on an worldwide basis do well".

"We are not out of the danger zone yet", said Nick Marro, a China analyst with the Economist Intelligence Unit. The U.S. ran a deficit with China in goods and services a year ago of $337 billion. "A $200 billion reduction would mean a drastic reduction in Chinese exports to the USA and a dramatic restructuring of the supply chain".

For the entirety of his adult life, Donald Trump has been telling people he's a brilliant businessman-a habit he continued, to great effect, on the campaign trail, assuring voters that he would use his Apprentice-honed skills to strike deals for the US beyond the wildest dreams of his predecessors.

A dollar amount of increased Chinese procurement also wasn't reached though Trump has recently called for a $200 billion target to close the massive $375 billion annual trade gap between the two countries. China will change its laws and regulations in this area, including its patent law, according to the statement.

Industrial companies and banks made some of the biggest gains Monday.

The U.S. agreed to possibly ease sanctions on ZTE Corp., the second-largest manufacturer of phones in Chia that could go belly up and put 70,000 employees out of work because of the sanctions. Trump raised eyebrows last week when he instructed officials to give the company a lifeline. Amy Zegart, co-director of the Center for International Security and Cooperation at Stanford University, said the only consistent policy Trump has "is that America is getting a raw deal world, but how to address that raw deal varies day to day and hour to hour". "The broader tension is not resolved".
