Few sane people out there expect them to….
That leaves Donald Trump’s action’s as possibly losing American industries their places in world export markets…And rising prices coming to America consumers?
How long will the America lawmakers let this guy keep pushing things closer to the edge of a cliff because he doesn’t have a sense or reality?
China has not changed unfair and discriminatory practices that prompted President Donald Trump to impose tariffs on around $250 billion worth of Chinese goods, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said on Tuesday.
The U.S. trade chief made the statement in conjunction with a 53-page update it released on a report on its investigation into China’s intellectual property practices under Section 301 of the 1974 Trade Act. That probe and the initial report from March provided the legal basis for Trump to impose tariffs on nearly half of all imports from China.
“We completed this update as part of this administration’s strengthened monitoring and enforcement effort,” Lighthizer said in a statement. “This update shows that China has not fundamentally altered its unfair, unreasonable, and market-distorting practices that were the subject of the March 2018 report on our Section 301 investigation.”
The announcement comes 10 days before a meeting between Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires that could set the stage for a pause in the trade conflict or a further escalation. Lighthizer’s statement indicates that China has done little over the past eight months to address the concerns laid out in its original report.
