Blame Game Continues in Trade War

Trump signs a memorandum on intellectual property tariffs on high-tech goods from China March 22

"At the country level, we can have countries that are net winners if they are big enough relative to their opponent". Nevertheless, the Chinese have invested heavily in the United States economy in many industries, and more importantly they have invested hugely in U.S. government treasury bills, notes and bonds to a staggering amount of $1.17 trillion, or 19 per cent of the $6.26 trillion foreign debt of the USA. "And, in the end, they're going to be much stronger than they are right now".

Mr Xi made no specific references to the ongoing spat with the Washington which has seen both sides announce tit-for-tat plans to slap tariffs on imports. That was a fraction of the number of cars the USA exported to China: 267,000 passenger vehicles worth $9.9 billion.

President Donald Trump expressed optimism the United States will be able to reach a deal with China that diffuses trade tensions between the world's two biggest economies. He added that he doesn't blame China, but American leaders for creating a "lopsided" set of trade rules. U.S. President Donald Trump's tariffs on Chinese goods triggered another bout of market volatility.

China's media, which is strictly controlled by the government, has come out in defence of the country, painting it as a victim of a too aggressive United States bent on taking illegitimate unilateral action.

President Xi Jinping promised Tuesday to cut China's auto tariffs and improve intellectual property protection in possible concessions aimed at defusing a worsening dispute with Washington over trade and technology that investors worry could set back the global economic recovery.

President Donald Trump added a new layer of pressure in his budding Beijing trade war Thursday evening, telling US officials to consider levying another $100 billion in tariffs on goods from China.

New Mexico pledges 250 troops to Mexican border
Trump said last week that he would be sending up to 4,000 troops to the southern border until his proposed border wall was built. It said "arming will be limited to circumstances that might require self-defense" but did not further define that.

"I would anticipate, ' Sanders told reporters, 'that if there are no changes to the behavior of China and they don't stop the unfair trade practices, then we would move forward" with tariffs. A week ago, there was just a single house where US soldiers had hoisted a USA flag on a hill a little ways back from a tense front line in Syria.

Late Thursday after Trump's latest announcement, Dow futures dropped by 400 points in advance of Friday trading. Wang Changlin, a researcher at the National Development and Reform Commission has claimed that China can still hit its 2018 GDP growth target of approximately 6.5 percent even if the trade war continues or escalates.

TD Securities thinks Xi may use the speech to open the door to begin trade negotiations with the United States. About 14 million American jobs across industries depend on trade with Canada and Mexico, according to the US Chamber of Commerce, a pro-trade lobbying group. Together, both sides are targeting about $50 billion (Dh183.9 billion) in either USA or Chinese goods in this first round, but both Beijing and Washington have left room for manoeuvre, with the Washington tariffs not taking effect for two months to allow for a period of public consultation.

The Permian basin in Texas is leading the way as US oil production has reached an all-time high, but the prolific output is causing bottlenecks as pipelines transporting the crude have filled up more quickly than expected, depressing prices in the region.

Further escalation could be in the offing. The United States has brought a number of WTO cases against China, prevailing in nearly all of them, and the Chinese government changed its policies as a result.
