(Worthy News) - The nearly yearlong trade war between the U.S. and China that raised the prices on billions of dollars' worth of Chinese goods may be nearing an end.

Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin said Saturday that the U.S. and China were close to finishing their trade talks and indicated that a deal could be announced soon. Trump administration officials have been involved in ongoing talks with their Beijing counterparts to reach a deal.

“I think we’re hopeful that we’re getting close to the final round of concluding issues,” Mnuchin told reporters Saturday in Washington, D.C. He said administration officials, including U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, would have a pair of conference calls this week with Chinese negotiators to clear up the remaining issues and that they were “discussing whether more in-person meetings are necessary.” [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]

  1. A key in negotiating is to not want anything so much that you'll compromise what you're really after ..... a real fair deal. President Trump is negotiator supreme. "OK, China, you won't stop stealing our technology, we'll just slap on a few $10's of Billions of import tax on other goods until you decide to stop."
    But it takes nerves of steel and chutzpah to be a good poker player.
