The Heat: China-U.S. Trade Deal

The Heat

In a White House ceremony, Chinese Vice Premier Liu He and U.S. President Donald Trump formalized a partial trade deal between the two countries.

The agreement cut some U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods in exchange for Chinese pledges to purchase more American farm, energy and manufactured goods. It also addresses some U.S. complaints about China’s intellectual property practices.
