Considering all the President Trump talk of new talks/deal I haven’t found a single notice of this or even mentioning of contact which to me mean they ignore it and it’s very unlikely there is real contact as China condition are clear :
Tariffs must be substantially reduced or eliminated….
China have over and over said there are three (really four) conditions:
- The list of good China needs to purchase to reduce trade deficit must be reasonable
- Existing tariffs must be substantially reduced or eliminated – which makes September 1st & October 1st critical
- The text of the agreement must “respect China’s dignity”
- Removal of Huawei sanction
Hence September 1st is still key date and of course October 1st – don’t forget either that October is the 70th Anniversary of China’s Communist Party, now is not the time for China to “fold” especially as President Trump continues to show his weak hand.
