“In China, I do not see the election change much,” says Greg Mastel, a former senate economics committee now at Law firm Kelley Drye. “Democrats probably support President Trump on China more than Republicans. In the end, I see President Trump likely to win a victory in China. “

Few democracies contradicted Trump’s handling of trade-related ounces with China. A remarkable exception was then Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota but it was not enough for her to hold at her seat. Her Republican rival, rep. Kevin Cramer, who was one of the strongest allies of the president, won the election election to resign her in the Senate.

However, Trump made his trade dispute with China an early part of his efforts to nationalize the congresses, even though he focused more on illegal immigration in the last weeks.

Trump has accused Beijing of a To be aware of the election by directing his trade deal with states that voted for him and vice president Mike Pence. Both he and Pence politically hayed out of the Chinese advertising supplement, introduced on Sunday, September 23, in the Des Moines registry.

Still, Republicans lost two congresses in Iowa and one in Kansas, which probably reflects at least some concerns in the agricultural sector over Trump’s use of tariffs against an important export market, “said Bill Reinsch, a commercial policy specialist at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

The election is now shifting attention to a forthcoming meeting between Trump and China President Xi Jinping at the annual G20 Summit, held November 30th-December. 1 in Buenos Aires.

It is more likely to enter into an agreement to initiate serious negotiations than an immediate deal that would cause Trump to settle its charges of about 250 billion Chinese goods and Xi removed China’s own data of approximately $ 110 billion in US exports.

“More substantively requires preparatory work, especially given the complexity of issues such as intellectual property protection, industrial policy and so forth. As far as I know, the preparatory work has not taken place,” says Phil Levy, senior man at world economy at Chicago Council on Global Affairs.

During a press conference after the election on Wednesday, Trump acknowledged that he would meet with Xi on G-20 but not comment on what should be discussed.

Although Trump often complains about the size of the US trade deficit with China, the motivation for its tariffs lies in a survey conducted by the US Trade Representative, which accuses China of trade secret theft as well as policies that require US companies to transfer valuable technology to do business there.

Yet, China can be careful to enter into talks with the United States, given the difficulty of reaching an agreement that fully satisfies Trump, Levy said. Several efforts in recent years failed because Trump rejected conditions were drafted by his senior officials.

If the two sides begin to talk, negotiations can be long and ultimately meaningless.

“The only way that it would happen quickly is that we fall away from most of our requirements,” said Reinsch. “I think you could cut a market access department tomorrow. The Chinese tried it in the spring and it did not work … The question is whether the president will buy it for the second time or the third time.”

Many trading experts predict that current US customs will remain in place for a long time, and that Trump could take further action to increase pressure on Beijing.

“We have been looking for an exit ramp here, but we can not find one,” said Reinsch. “What we ask them to do is to significantly restructure their finances in a market direction in ways that will undermine [Communist] the party’s control, and they will not.”

To a certain extent, Trump can identify trade as an area where he hoped to work with democrats.

“Trump identifies Trump even more freedom on his trading agenda. We will not lose businesses anymore to other countries,” he says. “Now it’s time for members of both parties to join together, put partisanship aside and hold it American economic miracle strongly. “

Over the past two years, Republican Congressmen have had some success in some of Trump’s more radical trade impulses because of concerns about their own re-election. But now, Trump’s main stay is in the White House until 2024.

In that friend, the president is likely to see the continuation of his current trade policy as a positive positive for his re-election, “said Warren Payne, a former Republican staff at the House Ways and Means Committee, a senior advisor at the Mayer Brown law firm. 19659030] This article was tagged in:
