"We'll probably make a deal, but I don't think they're ready", Trump said. I had a meeting with him. Despite the US tariffs on Chinese goods, the trade deficit between the two countries defied expectations and widened in both August and September of this year. "Sometimes it could be very confusing", Cui said in the interview.
Asked by CBS whether trump that Putin has to do with the murder, and poisoning, the US President replied: "Yes, it probably is".
The trade war between China and the United States escalated in June when US President Donald Trump announced that $50 billion worth of Chinese goods would be subject to 25 percent tariffs, with Beijing responding in kind. "Give me a break", Trump said. "You don't know what I talked about with Putin in the meeting prior to the press conference. To call Russia! Ridiculous", said Donald trump. He recalled that his predecessor Barak Obama had refrained from that decision and also was "the one that gave away a part of Ukraine", to Russian Federation. He also pointed out that a Chinese intelligence official was this week extradited to the US on charges of technology theft. "There's something really awful and disgusting about that", said Trump, echoing the sentiment of many left-leaning Americans.
Putin stressed that the coercive measures had forced the country to invest in developing its agriculture, to replace products that had been banned with Moscow's countermeasures, which led past year that branch surpassed the military industry in exports. So the US President has answered the question why he never makes harsh statements against Putin.
"This combined import tariff and export subsidy amounts to a roughly USD59 billion total trade impact - nearly double the approximately USD32.5 billion of tariffs the U.S. has levied against Chinese imports under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 - even before accounting for the retaliatory tariffs implemented by China to counteract USA tariffs", the Senator said. "There's a good mutual understanding and good working relationship between the two".
Trump told Stahl that he trusts North Korean leader Kim Jong Un but also warned, "That doesn't mean I can't be proven wrong".
There were several similarly testy exchanges, including one about Trump's relationship with Putin, his Russian counterpart with whom he was criticized for being friendly to during a meeting in Helsinki earlier this year.
"Lesley, it's OK", Trump said.
However, he said: "As for the manner of the conversation-if he went beyond diplomatic politeness-well, he did not". "Sure. I know all these things".
