Trump and Xi call truce in US-Chinese trade war

A meeting between President Donald Trump and Xi Jinping in Buenos Aires Saturday night ended in US consent to suspend new tariffs on Chinese products due on Jan. 1 and China’s agreement to buy a substantial amount of US products including agricultural items. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said both leaders negotiated several issues, including the need to protect intellectual property. They  included “structural changes with respect to forced technology transfer, non-tariff barriers, cyber intrusions and cyber theft, services and agriculture.” Discussions will begin immediately with the goal of concluding within 90 days.

The White House also said Xi and Mr. Trump had agreed “great progress” had been made with North Korea, and Mr. Trump and Xi will work with Kim Jong Un toward a nuclear-free North Korea.

    Clear thumb’s up for Trump and ofcourse Xi. I know conventional news outlets will find a negative way to analyse this improvement. The hatred the press has on Trump is actually making him make surpassing successes. The western media should be careful because it is glaring that their reports are relatively biased and very bad for their business. They are lucky they live where they are not forced to say what they dont want, they shouldnt take their freedom for granted.

        the sht show is over, Yoshkie…no one’s buying

        And it shall come to pass on that day, that the glory of Jacob shall become impoverished and the fatness of his flesh shall become emaciated.

        And it shall be like gathering the harvest of the standing grain, and his arm reaps ears, and he shall be as one who gathers ears of grain in the valley of Rephaim.

        And gleanings shall be left in it like the cutting of an olive tree, two or three berries at the end of the uppermost bough; four or five on its branches when it produces fruit, says the Lord, God of Israel.
