continuing to talk while putting the tariffs on hold "#China has outnegotiated the US again"Settling for Chinese promises of increased purchases of American goods and improvements in intellectual property laws marked a shift for the administration which disparaged earlier US diplomatic dialogues with China as fruitlessThe president personally demonstrated an appetite for harsher measures saying at one point that trade wars were "good and easy to win"The administration’s rocky handling of relations with China reflects a complex intermingling between economic and national security Trump on Friday proclaimed that the United States "has entered a new era in trade policy that is based on the recognition that our economic security is critical to our national security" In March he cited national security to justify imposing tariffs on imported steel and aluminum a move designed to boost domestic employment But now national security concerns are causing him to give ground on other economic objectivesDennis Wilder a former China analyst for the Central Intelligence Agency said the president’s softer line was linked to his desire for a successful June 12 summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a Chinese allyThe recent visit to Beijing of a North Korean delegation of municipal and provincial officials – the first such visit in eight years – suggested that Beijing might have been preparing to relax its sanctions on Pyongyang perhaps in retaliation for Trump’s tariff threats Wilder said"The administration has been a little rattled by how quickly the China-North Korea rapprochement occurred" he said "He probably believes that China is using the North Korea card in the trade negotiations"Trump threatened in April to impose tariffs on up to $150 billion in Chinese imports unless China made widespread changes in industrial policies that he said required US companies to surrender technology secrets to do business in ChinaMnuchin said the two sides have agreed on a "framework" to avoid the sanctions that requires China to lower tariffs on unspecified American goods protect US technology and buy more made-in-the-USA items"Right now we have agreed to put the

accelerated Chinese purchases said Mnuchin who led the US delegation in the talks with a Chinese team headed by Vice Premier Liu HeThe treasury secretary would not comment on reports that China had balked at a US request for $200 billion in increased annual purchases a figure that many economists regard as impossible to execute Instead he said the two sides had agreed on specific targets for individual sectors such as agriculture and energy"We expect to see a very big increase 35 to 45 percent increases in agriculture this year alone" Mnuchin said "In energy doubling the energy purchases I think you could see $50 [billion] to $60 billion a year of energy purchases over the next three to five years"Other administration officials have suggested that China might buy enormous quantities of liquefied natural gas though there are questions about the volumes that the limited US export infrastructure could handleMnuchin’s remarks came one day after the United States and China released a joint statement that appeared to take a step back from a potential trade war Larry Kudlow director of the National Economic Council said Friday that China had agreed to buy "at least $200 billion" more from the United States each yearOn Sunday Kudlow appeared to back away from that claim saying on ABC News’ "This Week" that "there’s no agreement for a deal We never anticipated one There’s a communique between the two great countries That’s all"Mnuchin said the president "can always decide to put the tariffs back on if China doesn’t go through with their commitments"Amid concerns that Trump was also preparing to soften the punishment for a major Chinese telecom company that had illegally traded with Iran and North Korea Mnuchin said the administration "didn’t agree to any quid pro quo"Chinese President Xi Jinping asked his American counterpart to "look into" a Commerce Department enforcement action against ZTE that threatened to put the company out of business After ZTE

Department in a tweet to help the company return to normal operations lawmakers from both parties objected The Republican-controlled House Appropriations Committee amended a must-pass annual spending bill to bar the department from lifting the penalties"I can assure you that the president wants us to be very tough on ZTE and all he did was ask the secretary to look into this" Mnuchin saidKudlow on Friday said that ZTE would have to overhaul its top management ranks before the United States would ease the enforcement actionMnuchin also suggested that Trump was prepared to wait until 2019 to wrap up negotiations aimed at a new North American trade deal He confirmed that the United States Mexico and Canada remain "far apart" after nine months of talks having missed a deadline set by House
