At the international level, the ultimate goal of the Trump administration`s trade war is to change China`s trade policy, while tariff enforcement and the negative economic effects of the trade war have also been criticized. Among U.S. industries, U.S. companies and agribusinesses opposed the trade war, although most farmers continued to support Trump. Some U.S. politicians disagree with Trump`s tactics, but most agree with the goal of putting pressure on China. [20] At the end of November 2019, none of the leading Democratic presidential candidates said he would eliminate tariffs, including Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren, both of whom agreed that the United States must deal with what it sees as China`s unfair trade policy. [21] The mayors of Davenport and St. Gabriel, who represented cities heavily dependent on the agricultural sector, expressed concern that the trade war would have on their cities.

[286] In September 2019, U.S. producers reduced their capital investments and delayed the shutdown due to uncertainty caused by the trade war. [225] Based on our October 26, 2020 report, we have seasonally adjusted the monthly purchase commitment targets to reflect this month`s relative weight for these products in the 2017 trade data. Note that the monthly targets for the end of 2020 serve only to illustrate. There is nothing in the text of the agreement to indicate that China must achieve anything other than the end-of-year targets. All these obstacles and complications lead to political failure. Regardless of who is president, the United States must get China to liberalize its tariffs, reduce non-tariff barriers, and streamline its subsidies and other practices that distort economic incentives. In response to Trump`s trade war, China imposed additional tariffs on more than 50 percent of U.S.

exports in 2018 and 2019. It is mysterious that the legal text of the first phase of the agreement did not remove, reduce or even mention the word “tariffs,” and it did little to address the major trade problems that the United States has with China. Instead, the Trump administration has provided an excellent case study on why simple purchase commitments can`t go around. Assessing progress in achieving the Phase 1 targets for merchandise trade requires information from both U.S. export and import statistics, as Chapter 6 of the agreement, Article 6.2.6, states that “official Chinese trade data and official U.S. trade data are used to determine whether this chapter has been implemented.” One consequence is that there are two sets of monthly data to follow (Chinese imports and U.S. exports).
