White House adviser: USA wants China trade deal as talks resume

Trump waves to the news media after returning on Marine One after visiting first lady Melania Trump at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center from the South Lawn of the White House in Washington U.S

The quickest way to combat the trade imbalance is with tariffs, but the danger of US imposed tariffs is that China, among other countries, will react with their own tariffs, which will in turn spark an all-out trade war that threatens the health of the global economy.

Ministry spokesman Lu Kang also said China appreciated tweets by Trump saying he would help ZTE Corp. get "back into business" because too many jobs in China are at stake after the US government cut off access to ZTE's American suppliers.

"President Xi of China, and I, are working together to give massive Chinese phone company, ZTE, a way to get back into business, fast", Trump said.

When a USA delegation led by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin met with officials in Beijing last week, no deal was reached largely because China refused a demand to cut the trade deficit by $200 billion within the next two years.

At least 6 Afghans killed, 20 injured during Jalalabad gun battle, blasts
Some areas of the province are a stronghold of the Islamic State group, while Taliban fighters are also active there. The attack targeted the tax and revenue office of Nangarhar Province in the city center of Jalalabad on May 13.

ZTE announced last week the USA sanctions would force it to curtail major operations.

President Donald Trump has insisted that the countries reduce the $370 billion trade deficit with China by $200 billion.

The widening trade dispute between the world's two biggest economies has taken a toll on both sides.

In retaliation, China announced its decision to impose 25 per cent tariffs on a total of 106 goods imported from the US. The block on ZTE was a heavy blow for the company but also hurt the USA companies it buys from.

"You (Trump) should care more about our national security than Chinese jobs". In retaliation, Beijing is threatening tariffs on $50 billion in USA products. ZTE has asked the department to suspend the seven-year ban on doing business with USA technology exporters.

Ross went on to praise President Trump for fulfilling his campaign promises and making trade more fair with China.

"The Company and related parties are actively communicating with the relevant United States government departments in order to facilitate the modification or reversal of the Denial Order by the USA government and forge a positive outcome in the development of the matters", said ZTE. By cutting off access to US suppliers of essential components such as microchips, the ban threatens ZTE's existence, the company has said. "But be cool, it will all work out!"

Defender Chris Smalling added: "It's job done, we knew that second place was ours for the taking". The Argentine veteran joined West Ham last summer from Manchester City .

California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the intelligence committee, criticized Trump for softening his stance on ZTE.
