China hopes for positive results from U.S. talks at G20

New Tariffs Could Hit Laptops, iPhones, Trump Says

The EU and Japan, in particular, have also drawn promises from Trump that he would not proceed with the auto tariffs as long as they are engaged in trade negotiations that are due to get underway in earnest early next year. The world will be watching to see if the two leaders come away with a breakthrough to end their escalating trade war, which has seen the United States slap tariffs on $250 billion worth of Chinese goods, with Beijing responding in kind. It put a 10% tax on goods ranging from luggage to bikes and baseball gloves.

Macron initially tried to befriend Trump despite their deep differences, but the two have increasingly clashed, most recently over wine tariffs, Trump's nationalism and Macron's idea of a European army.

The EU and US suspended potential auto tariffs in a truce announced over the summer, but that deal may not hold much longer, some observers predict. His aides, however, have reportedly suggested that those items be exempt from the tariffs in fear of consumer reaction.

Reports suggest that the USA government and China are close to closing a deal which could help reverse ZTE's failing fortunes.

Last year's federal tax cuts have also put more money back into Americans' pockets, lifting demand for imports even if they're more expensive.

In 2011, Trump claimed "China is raping this country" during a tour of a defense manufacturer in New Hampshire, local media reported. Yes, most Apple products including iPhones have so far been excluded from tariffs on Chinese goods, but even Apple's mighty influence with the US government can't win the company a permanent reprieve from trade war pain.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Tuesday in a press briefing that Trump and his delegation would meet the presidents of China, Argentina and Russian Federation, the prime minister of Japan, and the chancellor of Germany during the summit.

Yelchenko said he has recordings of radio traffic showing how the Russian military planned and carried out the seizures. It comes as a Crimea court ordered three of the 24 Ukrainians captured on Sunday to be detained for two months.

Both leaders, Donald Trump and Xi Jinping, are heading to the summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina, this week with the trade row between two of the world's largest economies expected to peak when they meet, according to Beijing's ambassador to Washington Cui Tiankai.

France fears that Trump, who was scheduled to arrive Thursday night, will block or eclipse any progress at the G-20.

No less a figure than Larry Kudlow, the director of the White House's National Economic Council, emphasized the importance of the discussions on November 27.

He stressed that resolving the trade dispute requires that "certain conditions have to be met with respect to fairness and reciprocity. intellectual property theft must be solved, forced technology transfers must be solved".

Companies reporting third-quarter results in the past month have discussed raising prices come January, especially if the higher tariffs are imposed as threatened.

On Wednesday, Argentine legal authorities took initial action to consider a request from Human Rights Watch to prosecute him for alleged crimes against humanity, a move apparently aimed at embarrassing him as he attends the summit.

While the announcement sparked an immediate backlash from Trump - a threat to remove tax credits for GM's electric vehicles - the tariffs on imported steel and aluminium have nearly certainly been a factor in the decision. USA steel producers have welcomed the taxes, as they've seen prices for their own products go up. Other local units of GM and Renault will be given less orders for the USA from its headquarters, they added. Trump's "America First" stance has already upended other recent world summits such as the G7 and the Asia-Pacific bloc APEC.
