On trade, Economic Adviser Kudlow said the president shall be promoting his America first agenda, along with a major topic during dinner along with Chinese counterpart will likely be trade.
“We’re in excellent shape. China much less good. I’m not here to critique or second guess men and women economy but the majority of observers believe China to remain in a slump, whereas the nation is within an incredibly strong, solid position starting this summit. However again, to repeat, obama said we have a good possibility we can create a deal and is available to it. But conversely, if these conditions I pointed out minutes ago are usually not met instead of addressed obama claims, look, he’s perfectly very happy to ascend to his tariff policies.” -President Trump
