President Trump Delays China Tariff Hike, Announces Xi Summit, Citing ‘Substantial Progress’ in Trade Talks

“President Trump announced Sunday that he would hold off on implementing planned tariff hikes on hundreds of goods imported from China, citing ‘substantial progress’ in high-level trade talks between the two nations,” Samuel Chamberlain reports for Fox News.

President Trump tweeted that he will be planning a summit meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Florida. On Friday, Chinese leaders committed to buying an additional 10 million metric tons of U.S. soybeans. President Trump’s trade “strategy is working,” Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue wrote on Twitter.

“With his stirring repudiation of socialism, both at home and abroad, President Trump is proving himself to be the very champion of liberty and freedom the world needs,” former executive Andy Puzder writes in Fox News. “No American president since Ronald Reagan has confronted the evils of socialism as forcefully as Trump is doing today by supporting the people of Venezuela as they retake their country from the corrupt socialist dictatorship of disputed president Nicolas Maduro.”
“It is time for Congress to join the president in his commitment to cutting spending, reducing bloated deficits, and getting our national debt under control. America’s future generations are depending on them,” Acting White House Office of Management and Budget Director Russ Vought writes in RealClearPolitics. “Time and again, Congress has ignored presidential cost-saving recommendations and plowed ahead with irresponsible budgets that increase both spending and the size of government. This needs to stop.”
In the Washington Examiner, Paul Bedard reports that suburban women are supporting President Trump—and the big reason is that many want a border wall. “A remarkable new Zogby Analytics poll found that suburban women, more than likely voters, support the wall and Trump’s emergency declaration that will allow him to spend more to build it than Congress has OK’d. The numbers: 45 percent of suburban women want the president to find other sources of money to build the border wall, versus 40 percent who don’t. And 50 percent back his emergency declaration.”
