Donald Trump surprised financial markets today with a pair of tweets showing the trade negotiations with China have hit an impasse. It seems POTUS is bringing in the big guns to help the Chicoms make a deal.
With the tariff rate on numerous goods originally set at 10% and set to more than double in 2019, Trump postponed that decision after China and the US agreed to sit down for trade talks; following Trump’s tweet it is now confirmed that trade talks have hit an impasse and that escalation will be needed to break the stalemate, reported Zero Hedge.
