Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post reported that it’s confirmed by unnamed source, China canceled the planned visit by Vice-Premier Liu He to the US on trade. This was on the ground that, as the Foreign Ministry said on Friday, “everything the US does hasn’t given any impression of sincerity and goodwill”.
Further, Trump said in a rally in Missouri last Friday that “we have far more bullets … We’re going to go US$200 billion and 25 per cent Chinese made goods. And we will come back with more … If they retaliate, we have a lot more to come back with. And they want to make a deal, and let’s see if we can make a deal.”
