Trump says tariffs on Chinese goods may stay for 'substantial period'

Today 09:55 GMT

U.S. President Donald Trump warned on Wednesday that the United States may leave tariffs on Chinese goods for a “substantial period” to ensure that Beijing complies with any trade agreement.

The face-to-face talks will be the first since Trump delayed a March 1 deadline to avert a rise in tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports to 25 percent from the current 10 percent. “The deal is coming along nicely,” Trump said to reporters at the White House, adding that the China trip was intended “to further the deal.”

Giants GM defends Beckham Jr trade and says Browns 'knocked it out the park'

Tuesday 03:19 GMT

The New York Giants general manager, Dave Gettleman, has defended his team’s decision to trade away Odell Beckham Jr, one of the best players in the NFL.

Beckham had clashed with the Giants in recent seasons but many believe the Giants had given up one of the best wide receivers in the league cheaply – especially after they had only just paid the 26-year-old a $20m signing bonus on a new contract, and Gettleman had said: “We didn’t sign Odell to trade him”.

Sen. Ron Johnson said on Sunday that enforcement is the key to making sure the Chinese government keeps its promises as part of a trade deal with the U.S., as Washington and Beijing continue their attempts to reach an agreement.

“The sooner we can get our trading partners to come to the table in good faith, offer fair and reciprocal trade treatment, the better the entire world economy will be,” the senator said.
