China has released a list of 16 US imports that will be exempted from tariffs in the ongoing trade war between the world's two largest economies. They include anti-cancer drugs and animal feed. But with more than 5,000 products on it, the list of goods that are still subject to extra taxes is much longer. Nevertheless, some analysts view the move as a friendly signal by China ahead of talks with the US. On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump praised the decision, saying the "gesture" could help upcoming trade talks.

This is a good sign that the Chinese are ready to cut a deal, the US should reciprocate in kind, which is a proper gesture in Chinese negotiations.

Never, ever trust the Communist Chinese. Trump can hold out, inflict more pain, and then cut a deal. There is no reason to do any gesture now.

"Never, ever trust the Communist Chinese."

You realize the Chinese are saying never trust Donald Trump? People all over the world are saying that.

They are? Certainly not the people of Hong Kong, but maybe you mean the propagandists of the People's Daily.

I don't really care what the CiCOMs say. They are hurting bigly from the tariffs. Don't show mercy now. Make them suffer until we get the deal we want with enforceable oversight protections.

But, glad to see you, along with the rest of the Dems, still on here cheering on the Chinese over the US.

Yeah, they were asking Trump to rescue them, what are they going to say when he doesn't do anything for them?

Maybe they will turn to their fellow former Commonwealth members Britain, Canada and Australia.

Why should the US be everyone's savior?
