On Friday, the market finally got some clarity from the source that calls the shots on the US-Сhina trade war. President Donald Trump announced that he has not agreed to any tariff rollbacks. He stated that ‘China would like to get somewhat of a rollback — not a complete rollback, because they know I won’t do it’. Moments later he went on to say that the United States and China are ‘getting along very well’. One point, President Trump did not fail to stress is that China wants to make a trade deal much more that himself. On Saturday, before boarding the Air Force One in Maryland, President Trump mentioned that he wanted to make a deal but it has to be a ‘great’ deal – otherwise he won’t make it. Details remain secretive with President Trump only stating ‘you’ll see what I’m going to be doing’. The latest Trump’s remark regarding tariffs said ‘The level of tariff lift is incorrect’.
