Donald Trump is facing a difficult decision! China is now demanding more and more loudly and vehemently that not only all planned US tariffs be cancelled, but also that all or many of the previously introduced punitive tariffs be reversed (as the Global Times said tonight). This puts Trump under pressure. He absolutely wants a deal to remove a major obstacle on the road to re-election. But on the other hand he cannot meet the demands of the Chinese without “losing face” in domestic politics. The US stock markets are still euophoric (Fear & Greed Index at 89!) and overbought. If the long-priced in Phase 1 deal doesn’t come, a major setback threatens.
