This is No Way to Win a Trade War with China

MT PLEASANT WI- JUNE 28 President Donald Trump speaks to guest during a groundbreaking ceremony for the $10 billion Foxconn factory complex

"I'm never insulted. I've learned not to be insulted", Trump said on the south lawn of the White House.

Chinese authorities say the United States is exaggerating security concerns to block a potential competitor. The news boosted investors' confidence today and drove the key U.S. indexes up.

Given the recent news reports flashing mixed signals concerning the US-China trade deal, swift in risk sentiment helps the gold prices to recover yesterday's losses while taking the rounds near $1329 during early Tuesday. Let's take a closer look.

"If we didn't have tariffs, we wouldn't have made a deal with Mexico", Mr. Trump told CNBC.

"I think he will go and I think we're scheduled to have a meeting".

President Trump said Monday that the Federal Reserve's policies have been "very destructive" to the US, complaining that Chinese President Xi Jinping's control of the country's central bank gives that country an unfair advantage.

Last week, Trump said he would decide after G20, the meeting of the leaders of the world's largest economies, whether to carry out a threat to impose tariffs on an additional $300 billion in Chinese goods.

The Toronto Raptors forward has had a phenomenal 2019 NBA Playoffs run, taking the Raptors all the way to the 2019 NBA Finals . The Los Angeles Clippers inquired about the possibility of acquiring the logo from Nike on Leonard's behalf, ESPN reported.

Last month, Nikkei Asian Review reported that Japanese electronics giant Ricoh will move production of its USA -bound printers from China to Vietnam. That heavily-qualified denial doesn't convey much confidence, though, and the fact that Xi felt compelled to defend the strength of his country's economy during an interview with Chinese and Russian media shortly before meeting with Putin only makes Xi's braggadocio seem even more contrived. But trade talks with China hit an impasse last month after the president accused Beijing of reneging on provisions of a tentative agreement.

G-20 finance ministers meeting in Fukuoka, Japan, over the weekend said trade and geopolitical conflicts are risking global economic growth, but at the USA insistence, dropped a call to "recognize the pressing need to resolve trade tensions". You know, we're leading in everything.

"People see 5G, but we see beyond that", he said. "China wanted to go backwards on certain things".

Washington last month put Huawei on a blacklist that effectively bars US firms from selling to the company without government approval. Most importantly, trade and geopolitical tensions have intensified. Between them, these nations represent roughly 86 percent of the global economy.

Meanwhile, China vowed Sunday to build what it calls a strong firewall against attempts to restrict its ability to technologically innovate.

China plans to announce details of its plans in the near future. It also wants curbs on subsidies for Chinese state-owned enterprises and better access for USA firms in Chinese markets.

Political analysts said Trump wants another "win" to follow-up his tariff deal with Mexico on June 7, which is being ridiculed as nothing more than a rehash of commitments previously made by Mexico over the past five months.
