Donald Trump request China to dissolve tariffs on US farm production [SuchTV] 02 Mar, 2019

“I have asked China to immediately remove all Tariffs on our agricultural products (including beef, pork, etc.),” the US president wrote on Twitter.He said his request was based on the fact that negotiations with China were “moving along nicely” – and his delay last week of a planned tariff increase on Chinese exports.“This is very important for our great farmers - and me!” he added.I have asked China to immediately remove all Tariffs on our agricultural products (including beef, pork, etc.) based on the fact that we are moving along nicely with Trade discussions....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 1, 2019 After months of trade war, the US and China agreed to a 90-day truce to work out their differences. It was scheduled to end on Friday, but Trump lifted the ultimatum to increase tariffs after he was satisfied by progress made in several rounds of talks in Beijing and Washington.A White House economic official, Larry Kudlow, said on Thursday the two countries were on the brink of a “historic” trade agreement. A meeting between Trump and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, was also expected this month.After the latest round of talks in February, US agriculture secretary Sonny Perdue tweeted that China had committed to buying “an additional” 10m tonnes of soybeans as a “show of good faith”.US farmers rely greatly on such trade with China: in 2017, around a third of US soybean production – worth $14bn -– was exported there, where it is used to feed pigs.
Those exports plummeted last summer, when China imposed tariffs on US soybeans and other agricultural products.Previously, in a gesture of goodwill at the start of the countries’ truce, China in December resumed soybean purchases.But Chinese tariffs had already hit America’s farming regions hard –areas where Trump has enjoyed plentiful support.
