Trump administration exempts more Chinese goods from tariffs

The Trump administration exempted numerous Chinese products from tariffs while the two countries figure out how they want to resolve their Trade War.

The items total approximately $250 billion dollars in good and include the following items:  “retractable dog leashes and harnesses, Christmas lights, bicycles, tiki torches, certain grill equipment and a variety of refrigerators, freezers and coolers.”

During a joint press conference with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Friday, Trump told the press he doesn’t need a trade deal with China to win the 2020 election.  He believes that a deal or no deal with the country will have no impact the election results.

“I don’t think I need it before the election. I think people know that we’re doing a great job,” Trump told reporters during a joint press conference with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Friday.

“I don’t think it has any impact on the election,” Trump said later, adding, “Now if something happened, I think that would probably be positive for the election, but that’s OK.”

Trump still claims China pays for the tariffs and not US consumers.
