USA 'looking for a deal' with China on trade: White House adviser

UPDATE 3-US 'looking for a deal' with China on trade -WHouse adviser

In a series of tweets, Mr. Trump emphasized his friendship with Chinese president, Xi Jinping, and that he is considering easing penalties on ZTE, in order to help the company stay in business.

The company faced collapse as a result and Trump said Sunday he and Chinese President Xi Jinping were exploring ways to get the company "back into business fast."Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross also said Monday the USA was looking at "alternative remedies" for the April sanctions".

US Ambassador to China Terry Branstad, who was at the Beijing talks, said earlier on Tuesday the United States wants a timetable on how China will open up its markets to US exports as the two countries are still not close to resolving trade frictions.

Trump's public statements have muddled that message. "Nothing has happened with ZTE except as it pertains to the larger trade deal", he said on Twitter.

The meetings in Washington this week follow trade talks in Beijing earlier this month where the two countries failed to reach an agreement on the long list of United States demands, including a $200 billion (€169 billion) reduction in China's trade surplus with the USA, which totaled $375 billion previous year.

During an interview on CNN's "New Day" on Wednesday, the IL representative responded to Trump's tweets supporting the Chinese company amid speculation that the president is seeking a closer alliance with China for cooperation on North Korea and other foreign policy issues.

America Inc is seeking relief from President Donald Trump's threatened tariffs on at least $50 billion in Chinese goods as negotiators seek to prevent a trade war between the world's two biggest economies.

Meghan Markle's Sister Hospitalized With Ankle Injury
Samantha has done everything possible to make herself relevant since Meghan was outed as Prince Harry's girlfriend in 2016. Markle's half-sister yesterday launched an astonishing attack on the U.S. actor just days before the royal wedding.

Or you can remove economic strictures on countries or corporations that actually do threaten US security. Before the sanctions were placed on ZTE, intelligence officials warned that the phones could be used to spy on American citizens, prompting counterespionage efforts against China. He also cast doubt on the level of communications between the two sides. Both committees oversee trade policy.

Trump's tweet on Sunday was quickly met with bipartisan criticism.

China said yesterday that it had stepped up inspections of key USA imports such as pork and cars, just as a high-level delegation visits Washington for key trade negotiations. "So they can't say they don't know what we're asking for", he said.

Derek Scissors, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, said that reversing the sanctions as part of a trade deal would break norms of trade talks and undermine the U.S. position to demand reforms from the Chinese government.

Reports have also said inspectors are taking similar action against U.S. vehicle giants such as Ford as well as waste imports from the USA and other products.

"We're still very far apart", he said.

"In the first four months of the year, major auto ports in China detected a total of 652 batches of cars from the USA - totaling 4,360 vehicles worth $312.5 million - that were not up to standard", the customs administration told AFP, adding that this was "a relatively quick pace of growth". "Too many jobs in China lost". Citing statistics showing U.S. waste imports failing to meet standards, China's customs department said it took action to "protect people's lives and health and safeguard the ecological environment".
