One of President Trump’s key campaign promises was to reevaluate the trade relationship between the U.S. and China. In 2018, the Trump administration imposed tariffs of up to 25% on over $250 billion worth of Chinese goods. In response, China imposed tariffs of similar severity on $110 billion worth of American goods, such as chemicals, coal, and medical equipment. Since then, the two largest economies in the world have been engaged in an escalating trade war, but the meeting between President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping during the 2019 G20 summit signaled progress in negotiations. Here, the two leaders agreed to a ceasefire and a return to discussions for a trade deal.
