For example, he claimed that China was financing advertisements to convince Americans to stop Trump's trade agenda. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin duly declared that the trade war had been "put on hold", but this was overturned in a matter of a few days.
In the meantime, signs of the trade war are creeping into the economic data. To put matters bluntly, the U.S. government is now facing the medium term possibility of paying its farmers to throw away foodstuffs while Chinese investment in its various domestic industries is used to help push Chinese goods to the forefront of innovation while helping Chinese products ranging from agriculture to industrial goods to reach foreign shelves.

"The implementation date will be subject to the actions of the United States, and China reserves the right to continue introducing other countermeasures".

Bona fide trade wars are never limited to tariffs. In thinking that China will be "broken" by U.S. tariffs, Donald Trump's nation is rapidly learning that a mutually disadvantageous trade war is far more disadvantageous to United States businesses than to Chinese industries.

"China promises that it will continue to unswervingly push forward reform and opening-up based on established arrangements and pace, firmly support economic globalization, firmly safeguard free trade rules and multilateral trade mechanisms to realize joint development and share prosperity with all countries that pursue progress", the commission said. We are using them to negotiate fair trade deals and, if countries are still unwilling to negotiate, they will pay us vast sums of money in the form of Tariffs. Mexico president-elect, Lopez Obrador, sent his trade negotiator to Washington DC this past week to explore concessions with Trump. The deal was "more evidence that the American president is the master negotiator". Juncker's goal was to get Trump to back off his threats to impose tariffs on Europe auto part imports. It was not actually a trade agreement. The U.S. can buy more because the economy is strong.
In terms of actual tariffs, or any other "trade" measure, the Trump-Juncker announcement was mostly a public relations stunt for both parties created to placate their domestic critics. Beijing retaliated by imposing similar charges on the same amount of USA products.
