Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, October 11, 2019

The U.S. and China reached a partial agreement Friday that would broker a truce in the trade war and lay the groundwork for a broader deal that Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping could sign later this year, according to people familiar with the matter.

As part of the deal, China would agree to some agricultural concessions and the U.S. would provide some tariff relief. The pact is tentative and subject to change as Trump prepares to sit down with China's Vice Premier Liu He later Friday. The deal under discussion would suspend a planned tariff increase for Oct. 15, delay -- or call off -- levies scheduled to take effect in mid-December, and would be the first breakthrough in the 18-month trade war.

While the limited agreement resolves some short-term issues, several of the thorniest disputes remain outstanding: accusations of intellectual-property theft, forced technology transfer and complaints about Chinese industrial subsidies, which are not addressed in this deal.

Hmmm.. Nice temporary distraction from Trump's other troubles.

The fact remains that the markets have been basically flat now for more than 18 months.
