China To Sign Nuclear Deal With Argentina

But US growth remains on pace for a little over three percent this year, and Kudlow noted that the US economy is in a strong position, while China is slowing and is in "a slump".

Mr. Trump is set to meet with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, on Friday and Saturday during the summit in Buenos Aires, which involves finance ministers and other top officials from 20 of the world's largest economies.

En route to Argentina, Xi said in Spain on Wednesday that his government would indeed boost protection of intellectual property, although foreign companies in China complain they have heard such promises before.

The EU and USA suspended potential auto tariffs in a truce announced over the summer, but that deal may not hold much longer, some observers predict.

A ceasefire, analysts say, would at least delay the risk of a further escalation in the trade war while talks proceed.

Under the administration of President Donald Trump, Washington has taken a harder line towards Beijing, especially on trade, and has insisted that the pressure will not relent until China comes to the table with a deal that addresses long-running concerns.

The dinner with Xi is scheduled as one of the last events on Trump's itinerary there before he returns to Washington, Kudlow said.

Shares of Apple and some of its suppliers were sagging on Tuesday after President Donald Trump said he might include iPhones and other high-volume consumer electronics products in the potential next wave of tariffs on imports from China. "So, on diverse issues, we need to focus on strengthening institutions such as the New Development Bank", Sachin Chaturvedi, Director General of Research and Information System for Developing Countries (RIS), a think tank under the Ministry of External Affairs said. Yes, most Apple products including iPhones have so far been excluded from tariffs on Chinese goods, but even Apple's mighty influence with the US government can't win the company a permanent reprieve from trade war pain.

Additional tariffs on auto imports from China would affect any cars produced in China.

It is likely to be to the fore of the meeting of European leaders called by Macron, along with demands to resist the trade protectionism now stalking the world economy 10 years after the first G20 summit was held in the throes of financial crisis.

"These multilateral frameworks [are] where we really see in very stark ways that the "America first" policy ... is very much a self-isolating policy in a multilateral framework", said Heather Conley, a former State Department official in the George W. Bush administration.

Some administration officials have been arguing that hitting allies such as the European Union and Japan with tariffs at the same time as Trump is soliciting their help in taking on China would be counter-productive.

Rather, the goal is "that there would be an indication, a kind of way ahead that the advisors could then pursue", Bolton said.

No deal. It's possible China won't come offering something Trump is willing to accept, or the dinner otherwise goes south.

United States stocks had rallied on Monday, shaking off recent weakness, in part on hopes Trump might reach agreement with Chinese leader Xi Jinping at this week's G20 meeting in Argentina.

"We are very close to doing something with China, but I don't know that I want to do it", Trump said, adding: "I like the deal we have now".

Additionally, Trump said that he expects to boost tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese products to 25 percent in January. "We have an opportunity to extend that optimism, break some new ground", Kudlow said.
