No more MOUs! fumes Donald Trump”

"In the past two days, we have conducted fruitful negotiations and made positive progress in areas of trade balance, agriculture, technology transfer, intellectual property protection and financial services".

Mr Trump is due to meet Chinese Vice Premier Lu He on Friday, according to Reuters, as both sides try to achieve a deal ahead of a 1 March deadline. Trump, speaking at the White House alongside Liu and members of his own Cabinet, said he could envision extending the March 1 deadline for higher tariffs by a month or so if there's more progress.

A high-powered Chinese delegation is now in the United States for talks with the USA on a trade deal.

The discussions began with a photo opportunity where U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He faced each other silently across a table in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building next door to the White House. "And I would be inclined to doing that".

Top trade officials from the two countries have so far met several times.

The administration contends that Beijing has repeatedly failed to live up to its past commitments to open its markets and to treat foreign companies more fairly.

The world's two largest economies are locked in a trade war since Trump imposed heavy tariffs on imported steel and aluminium items from China in March past year, a move that sparked fears of a global trade war. The latter grouping would face the 25 per cent tariffs, too, if no agreement is reached. So U.S. businesses are really watching all this very carefully. At a Congressional hearing earlier this month, T-Mobile CEO John Legere claimed and that the combined company would make 5G a reality in the US faster and improve wireless service to rural Americans.

An agreement on currency manipulation will be included in the trade pact, he said.

Nevertheless, the Trump administration is said to be preparing an executive order that could significantly restrict Chinese state-owned telecom companies such as Huawei from operating in the U.S. over national security concerns.

The veteran trade negotiator also said that "major hurdles" remain before a deal can be struck. "So, we don't think the deal they come up with is truly enforceable at this stage".

"We won't fall into those same pitfalls", U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Thursday in an interview on Fox Business Network. Through it all, he has pushed the limits of US trade law to favour domestic companies over foreign rivals.

Agriculture Sec. Sonny Perdue Friday that during the Oval Office meeting the Chinese pledged to purchase an additional ten million metric tons of USA soybeans.

United Kingdom concludes using Huawei in 5G is a manageable risk, report says
If true, the report goes against continued warnings from the USA concerning the threat posed by Huawei to Western nations. The U.S. has accused her of fraud and violating global sanctions against Iran, which she and Huawei have both denied.

In his letter, Xi mentioned about the letter and a video that he received from Trump earlier. "Either you are going to make a deal or you're not". "They're getting closer to getting an agreement".
