"First another day of reckoning in the US China trade war today was supposed to be the deadline for China to shape up if not the Trump administration would increase tariffs on more than six thousand types of Chinese imports. But President Trump is backing off. He's delayed new round of tariffs and says, quote substantial progress is being made in negotiations with China. Here's more from the world's Jason Margolis, the art of the deal again, or maybe not this time not with China says, economists, Derrick scissors, the idea that we're going to get the greatest deal ever, the greatest you'll ever is not going to pan out and it's going to blow up in his face. Meaning if Trump runs for president in two thousand twenty he'll have some explaining to do and a democratic candidate will be quoting candidate Trump in two thousand sixteen over and over again about how China's He actually said the words they're raping our country. We can't continue to allow China to rape our country, and that's what they're doing. And then. On sunday. He said we had the best relationship we've ever had China. It's very difficult to see how things have changed in the last two years or two and scissors focuses on the Chinese economy at the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank in Washington, he just doesn't see what the Trump administration has been able to get from the Chinese that other administrations haven't, for example, one major sticking point in US. China relations has been the forced transfer of technology where American companies hand over intellectual property in order to do business in China. Trump has said that's coming to an end, the Chinese, of course, have said, they've never course technology transfer. It's all voluntary. So them writing a law that says course, technology transfer. It doesn't do anything with the issue after issue. The Chinese are making the same old promises. He says as they have many times in the past. We have known for some mechanism as we have not had in the past. And none of those promises are gonna come to fruition. But let's say President Trump does turn out to be the master negotiator. He says he is can you turn the ship around for decades? U S China trade has worked this way. China builds it we buy it. It's hard to imagine all of this being resolved right away, economists, Katie Russ at the university of California Davis says if Trump really wanted to put pressure on China, if you want to have the quickest results, then joined TPP, the trans Pacific partnership that twelve nation trade agreement brokered by President Obama, Russ says, it would have shifted trade away from China to other countries that maybe we feel more. Close strategic alliances with but President Trump withdrew from that seventy two hours into his presidency and said the US would pursue bilateral trade agreements. Instead, of course, Trump wasn't the only one opposed to the TPP labor unions, and many Democrats worried that it could cost American jobs so back to China. Trump needs a deal a few days ago. He said talks are going very well and highlighted China's commitment to buy American corn corn, but a lot of it more than anyone thought possible. Welcome news in Illinois, the nation's second leading corn producer. I asked senior economist Mike Dougherty with the Illinois farm bureau, if he had any details on Trump's corn plan, we don't and it's being treated as well. It's possible. But we'll wait and see it protects happen. Illinois is also the nation's top soya producer, China is number one export market. But this season's export has been a bust in retaliation for Trump's tariffs last summer. China slap tariffs on US. Soybeans of that crop were about forty percent under where we normally would be at internal sales to China. Dorothy says more corn sales to China won't offset this. They don't sell much corn there. Many farmers do like Trump's overall economic policies, lower taxes fewer regulations still when it comes to trade. I asked dirty if Illinois farmers still believed in the president's message. We're not sure what exactly what that message is. What are we talking about in terms of long term payoff? I mean, we were a number one number two supplier out of the world to the Chinese market for supplying their soybeans. We could just get back to that. I think most of the farmers here would be pretty happy for the world. I'm Jason"
