President Trump is very likely the most business-savvy Commander in Chief in modern history.
What Trump lacks in both military and political experience is more than made up for by his lengthy and tumultuous career in international real estate. And let's not take that description as offensive: That tumult is far more valuable than a lifetime of smooth sailing.
You don't learn much from calm waters and a pacifying journey.
So when Trump heads to the negotiating table, he brings something with him that other politicians would be forced to outsource. It is this intangible prowess that is keeping key trade partners like China on their toes.
Now, after weeks of trouble in trade talks with the Far East, President Trump is heralding a possible breakthrough in negotiations.
Trump described the meeting as "excellent" and said the U.S. and China were "back on track" in trade talks but added that "negotiations are continuing." He told reporters he would announce the results of the talks at a news conference later Saturday.
Even the Chinese press was quick to react positively to the news.
China's official Xinhua News Agency said the two leaders agreed to restart trade talks "on the basis of equality and mutual respect," saying the leaders had reached a cease-fire on trade and that Trump also agreed to forego new tariffs on Chinese imports.
The meeting between the two leaders at the G-20 summit was their first in seven months, although the two leaders reportedly also met at a dinner for the Group of 20 leaders, where Trump said much was accomplished.
The so-called "trade war" with China has been disproportionately affecting American farmers, who are a key demographic in Donald Trump's 2020 vote-gathering plan. If he were to pull off a deal with China that behooves the agriculturists of our great nation, Trump would be one step closer to keeping the White House next November.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
