Trump Pushes Forward with Progress on China Deal Despite Impeachment Row

President Trump’s tactics during this impeachment inquiry have been far from average, and are continuing to stun political onlookers to this very day.

For some, it is alarming just how casually President Trump brushes aside concerns over his possible impeachment by the “resistance”-minded House Democrats.  The Commander in Chief is positively flippant about the entire ordeal at times, brushing it off as swiftly as an overcooked lunch.

Perhaps it is this nonchalant attitude that has allowed him to continue pushing diplomacy forward in the face of the left’s incessant pressure.

Just today, Trump announced that a new “phase one” trade deal with China was on the horizon – something that could have a major impact on the nation’s heartland.

The U.S. and China have reached a partial trade pause.

President Trump, speaking at the White House, said: “We’ve come to a very substantial phase one deal”…adding it will take three to five weeks to get written. The deal includes intellectual property, financial services and $40-$50 billion related to agriculture products. It is unclear what the U.S will give up in return and a comprehensive trade deal will have two or three phases.

The U.S. will not be raising tariffs on the Chinese next week to the 30 percent level as part of this agreement.

U.S. stocks spiked to the highs of the session, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average rising by nearly 500 points, before pulling back slightly at the close. The move signals the third major trade deal President Trump has sealed.

America’s soybean farmers have been particularly affected by this latest trade tiff with Beijing; something that could very well come back to haunt Donald Trump when it comes time for the Midwest to vote next November.

With this new “phase one” deal, he may have just staved off that worry.
