UPDATE: China's Leader to Visit the White House in June

May 2, 2019 03:37 PM

There are more hopeful signs a trade deal could come soon with China. Farm Journal Washington Correspondent Jim Wiesemeyer says China's leader Xi Jinping will visit the White House in June.

He says the visit will happen before the G20 Summit in Japan. Wiesemeyer says the White House is currently looking at the second or third week of June for Xi's visit, but CNBC says the U.S. and China may actually announce a trade deal by next Friday.

China's chief negotiator is leading more than 100 officials for talks in Washington next week.  Those negotiations will officially resume next Wednesday.

  I am a retired UAW member and a farmer and I feel that we will gain from a new trade deal with China. Sorry to say but, you have to lose short term to gain long term, disagree with me if you want, but it's the truth. It is time for fair trade on both sides and I support what has been done. We probably didn't get everything we want but, some gain is better than none.

  Whatever "deal" is signed will fall far short of what trump originally promised and all the collateral damage done by the war with china will be all for naught! Oh, sure there may be a brief pop in commodity prices when it's announced, but something sustainable and beneficial for the entire nation? No way!
