So far, it is looking as if Pres Trump has received fewer concessions from China in this round than were agreed to back in May when he walked away from the table. So all the angst and pain suffered by farmers and others since last May were for naught?

This is looking a lot like last year's government shutdown where he shut down the government and wound up with less than what was offered before he shut the government down.

I'm starting to wonder just how good of a deal maker Pres Trump really is.

He's a beautiful, perfect deal maker. Just ask him.

I heard a snippet on the radio of Trump bragging about a $16 billion dollar deal for agricultural product.

Isn't that just about the amount he just put the taxpayers on the hook for in an attempt to appease farmers who lost money thanks to his tariffs?

#1 We don't know the side deal dirty donnie got. He may be a terrible businessman and a terrible POTUS, but he has learned to get paid during his numerous deal failures.

@#3 ... He needs "wins" right now... ...

That aspect has been troubling me about this.

What compromises is he making or going to make in order to get some manner of a deal he can point to?

So far, I've heard or read little about the enforcement provisions of the partial deal he negotiated. For me, the enforcement is the critical part, e.g., what happens if China is caught continuing to steal our intellectual property?

Not a single proggie who whined about the tariffs saying, "good". TDS takes its toll.

I can appreciate that there's not much enthusiasm for giving kudos to someone who issues a threat when they don't actually follow through.

How often does one congratulate a bully when they don't take your lunch money?

Expecting an acknowledgement for that action (or rather in this case, inaction) on new tariffs, seems like one is requesting a "participation trophy".

Besides, the threat of implementing new tariffs is only "on hold" for now.

RE: #7

Looks like Wall Street wasn't taken in by the supposed significance of the tariff delay either.

Are they "proggies"?

LOL!
