“Countries themselves come to us, wanting to enter into real trade deals, rather than one-sided nightmarish deals made by the previous administration. They do not want to get under US duties, ”Trump wrote on Twitter.

According to him, “things are going very well with China.”

Earlier, China announced plans to take countermeasures in response to the introduction of US duties, which Trump announced.

The US president said that the United States from September 1 will impose duties in the amount of 10% on the "remaining" imports from China, which is estimated at $ 300 billion.

Dmitry Rodionov, Director of the Center for Geopolitical Studies at the Institute for Innovative Development, assessed the trade standoff between Washington and Beijing in an interview with FAN.
