Daines: China Making Concessions on Trade
China is making concessions to the United States when it comes to tariffs, according to Senator Steve Daines (R-MT). Daines just returned from a visit to China, and had this to say to Breitbart News:
After first threatening to raise tariffs on U.S. goods, Chinese President Xi Jinping on April 10 pledged he would cut Chinese auto tariffs and allow more competition in banking and better protect intellectual property.
“The president has put in almost a disruptive force into the mix here,” Daines said. “Suddenly President Xi is talking about concessions on automobile tariffs. That’s a significant win for us.”
Meanwhile, Daines is also pressing the Trump Administration to support the Trans Pacific Partnership. Tuesday on Capitol Hill, Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue told Daines that he is encouraging the president to re-engage on this issue. Perdue added, "I think the president's negotiating style could possibly get an even better agreement this time around."
