At the least, timing of US president’s tweet means tit-for-tat tariffs may now be cancelled Last week Donald Trump thought it might be best to delay any trade deal with China until after next year’s US presidential election. Now he says the two countries are “very close” to a deal. As ever with Trump, it’s hard to take any statement at face value but, on this occasion, the timing probably means something will happen within days. The critical element is the approach of Sunday’s deadline for the US to decide whether to impose tariffs on a further £119bn of Chinese consumer goods.
