President Trump is certainly a president like no other before, and much of that sentiment can be traced back to his days as a real estate mogul in New York City.
In this bustling metropolis, Trump made a name for himself as a negotiator of immense skill and passion. His hardball tactics were an integral part of his ability to navigate such a wild and hairy environment, ultimately conquering not only The Big Apple’s speculative realty arena, but also the reality television industry and the White House.
Now these skills are being put to the test against an obstinate trade foe in China, with the Far East superpower using their formidable fiscal powers to put the squeeze on American agriculturalists in the process.
After an abysmal few weeks of stagnation, the trade talks began in earnest against last week as the two mighty economies traded barbs and tariffs on Friday. Now, as the new week dawns, so does the hope of a peaceful and prosperous resolution.
An upbeat President Donald Trump said Monday a U.S.-China trade deal is in the offing and the two sides will begin serious negotiations soon.
Trump said his trade negotiators had received two “very good calls” from China on Sunday night, a sign that progress is being made and China is serious about making a deal.
“I think we’re going to have a deal, because now we’re dealing on proper terms. They understand and we understand,” Trump said as he met with Egypt’s president on the sidelines of the Group of Seven summit in France.
“This is the first time I’ve seen them where they really want to make a deal. And I think that’s a very positive step,” Trump added.
An end to these trade tirades can’t come soon enough for America’s heartland and its hard-working farmers, who have been suffering mightily at the hands of China’s tough-guy act.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
