As Trade Talks Begin, Trump Slams Beijing: “They Always Change The Deal”

Just as the US trade delegation was set to leave for the first round of in-person talks with their Chinese counterparts since the latest Trump-Xi truce, President Trump sent out a furious series of tweets accusing Beijing of failing to live up to its promise to buy more American agricultural products – apparently “there are no signs that they are doing so” – while bashing the Chinese economy and suggesting that it might be better for the US in the long run to wait until after the 2020 election to make a deal, because “when I win, the deal that they get will be much tougher than what we are negotiating now…or no deal at all. We have all the cards, our past leaders never got it!”

Though, if Beijing gets lucky, they might get “one of the Democratic stiffs like Sleepy Joe. Then they could make a GREAT deal, like in the past 30 years…”

Surprisingly, the market ignored Trump’s comments, despite the President’s suggestion that the talks with Beijing are essentially already doomed. This, of course, says a lot about what’s really driving the market.

With the FOMC’s two-day policy meeting set to begin on Tuesday, Trump just gave us the clearest indication yet that this market is all about the Fed.
