Global news twenty four hours a day on air and tick tock on Twitter. Powered by more than twenty seven hundred journalists and analysts in more than one hundred twenty countries. I'm Doug krizner. This is Bloomberg Brian to you. All right. Thanks very much. It's eight and a half minutes now past the hour. Our next guest on the show is tweet forever. Macro strategist dad's State Street. We for great to have you back in the chair here in our studios. So yesterday, we had some positive developments word that Steven Mnuchin had approached Beijing the market's really loved that today the president walked it back a little bit. But the markets are still buoyant. What's the real story here? The real story. I think is that the US and Trump particular need to win before the elections. So he's gonna play a very very. Hard man sort of role here as much as he possibly can marketed looking at this and thinking that well, visit Lee some leeway on both sides, the Chinese obviously want to get some agreement if the US now moving towards some agreements as well. Then that's all in good. As far as the Mark implications are concerned, but what I think Trump is very keen to avoid is any agreement which actually makes it look if there's been a little bit too much. Give and take or particularly give from the US side. The yes to come out of this with a victory with a win one. That one is tweet one that he can go to them to the electorate and say look at that I managed to get an agreement out of the Chinese which Obama never did. And which six months twelve months ago, we were not close to I'll be the devil's advocate here because China does not want to give him a win. I think they're very wary of that. And they've been burned before it may. Yes, they have. So this is the risk. The risk is that you don't end up an agreement simply because Xi Jinping has said quite a few times. We're not taking it backward step here. So the, but as always with these negotiations there'll be an eleventh hour agreement somewhere, which both sides can paint is a victory. That's probably how it's gonna end up. I was under the impression that the president didn't wanna deal, and that the baseline position was that China would do a deal on IP and on trade, but not on made in China twenty twenty-five, but we had a guest last hour Shah from BBVA, and he says, no the sounds coming. Out of China now are willing to give ground a little bit on the technology the twenty twenty five and the way that they're doing. It is by suggesting that this was something from the think tank. We thought it was a good idea. But it's not etched in stone. There's never really been a concrete policy on meeting on twenty twenty five. It's really been a an idea that's Germany as it were from the think tanks, and it's made its way into and this is often the way in China things never really begin at the high level things originate from universities, think tanks opinion pieces they make their way through the provincial system. They make their way into the national system, then they make their way into government eventually, so no maiden, China twenty-five is not a concrete government policy. This makes me feel much more positive. I mean, it makes me I'll just say play the role of the typical investor that it seems like a deal could be done. So we'll talk some more about that. With you. Do we do we for macro strategies? At State Street wealth and take the devil's advocate.
