China will not flinch in the face of U.S. pressure, top negotiator says after talks

BEIJING —China will not flinch in the face of American pressure to agree to a trade deal, Beijing’s chief negotiator said Saturday after the latest round of talks ended without agreement and higher tariffs were imposed on Chinese exports.

Liu He, China’s vice premier, tried to strike a resolute but relatively conciliatory note as he left Washington following the end of the fractious talks.

“It is like a marathon. The last phase can be the hardest,” Liu told Hong Kong-based Phoenix TV after the trade talks. “To sit out the dark before the dawn, we have to hang in there, and we hope we get the understanding and support of all aspects.”

China was firmly opposed to a trade war but would keep a cool head while trying to resolve it, he said. “China is not flinching, and nor are the Chinese people.”


Aw come on. Donny Dotard needs a win.

1. Tariffs aren't the way to go

Require Chinese companies who want to do business in the US to transfer their technology to US companies if they want to do business here.
