US Stocks Jump as Fears of Trade War Ebb

Trading foreign favors for Trump business?

"Our Trade Deal with China is moving along nicely, but in the end we will probably have to use a different structure in that this will be too hard to get done and to verify results after completion", he tweeted.

They said it was particularly critical when the violators are state-owned and part and parcel of China's policies and practices created to strengthen the country's national security innovation base and essential tools of efforts to spread China's influence in other countries that pose national security threats to the US.

"U.S. soybean farmers welcome the news that the United States and China have reached a general consensus on some aspects of trade between the two countries, and we look forward to learning the specifics about how U.S. agricultural trade will play an important role in improving the Sino-U.S. trade imbalance", Arkansas soybean farmer Derek Haigwood, chairman of the U.S. Soybean Export Council, said in a statement.

Higher tariffs could be particularly painful for Asian automakers including Toyota Motor Corp, Nissan Motor Co, Honda Motor Co and Hyundai Motor Co, which count the United States as a key market, and the announcement sparked a broad sell-off in automakers' shares across the region.

"By shutting them down, we're hurting a lot of American companies, really good American companies", Trump said.

"China welcomes the U.S. in sending senior trade delegations to China soon, and hopes China and the United States can work together to actively implement the measures specified in the joint statement according to the understanding both sides achieved recently in DC", Gao said.

China is aggressively pursuing its territorial claims in the South China Sea - including by militarizing disputed areas and pushing its borders far out into global waters - despite an worldwide arbitral ruling invalidating them. A person familiar with the discussions said the president has suggested seeking new tariffs up to 25 percent on automobile imports. "The United States will send a team to China to work out the details".

The Journal, citing sources in the auto industry, said U.S. moves to retaliate likely would face significant opposition from trading partners and auto dealers that sell imports.

"There is evidence suggesting that, for decades, imports from overseas have eroded our domestic auto industry", Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said in a statement, promising a "thorough, fair and transparent investigation".

Rubio urged President Donald Trump to take this issue seriously, listen carefully to those in his own administration who understand this threat holistically for what it is.

Trump's assault on the rules-based order extends also - and ominously - to trade. Mexico is the top exporter of passenger vehicles and light trucks to the U.S followed by Japan, Canada, Germany and South Korea, according to the Department of Commerce. "We are looking for a permanent exemption". In tweets earlier this week, he said: "China is out-negotiating the administration and winning the trade talks right now".

"The market is pricing in a 90 percent chance that this whole trade war and tariff idea is going to come and go without it being implemented", said James Cordier, president and head trader of OptionSellers.com, an investment firm in Tampa, Florida.

Is that what the USA really wants, though, to become a raw material and agricultural products exporter like Russian Federation or Brazil?

Trump on Tuesday, however, told reporters he was not pleased with recent talks, calling them "a start".

"Europe is also going to worry about the effect on others". For soy, China already imports almost all it can from the US.

Given Trump's fixation with the deficit and belief that China has been exploiting the United States on trade for decades, it's nearly inevitable that tensions on the issue will bubble up again - since the fundamentals of the case have not been solved.

It may be still early days in the US-China trade conflict. In addition, 79 types of tariffs for auto parts will fall to 6 percent.
