(Worthy News) - When President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping sit down on Friday in Argentina to talk trade issues, it’ll be a three-page document with 142 items on it that they’ll mainly be discussing.

The list is made up of demands initially made by the U.S. that China has broken down into three rough categories: Things they are open to doing, things they are willing to discuss further, and items that are nonstarters for them, according to administration officials and major trade associations.

The list is significant because the Trump administration has sought specific written proposals from China as part of its trade negotiations. China has refused to provide these kind of documents, not wanting to appear to commit to particular proposals.
