    China has a 100 year plan to make that happen.

    The Soviet Union had plans to take over the planet......how'd that work out?

    They didn't have a billion person horde. They didn't have the capital to buy up American property and interests including politicians. They didn't welcome American companies so they could steal tech. They didn't have fentenyl to ship into America via Mexico causing turmoil and added expense.
    China is far more of a threat than the old Soviet Union ever was.

    How is this any victory.

    Trump started a trade war for specific reasons

    None which have been achieved

    Trump places tariffs, then China does the same

    They are just backtracking on tariffs that they imposed since Trump became president

    Still how many times has Trump claimed victory and then announced more tariffs because no deal was reached.

    Wasn't the goal to reducing the trade deficit and address intellectual property theft

    how is rolling back trade sanctions that trump imposed in the past 2 years a victory

    how many times have we heard that there was an agreement.

    Now Trump says he is rolling back what he did earlier this year because they have agreed to negotiate.

    Trump last round of tariffs was to get them to negotiate

    So yeah I guess if they start to negotiate that is about the level of victory trump is capable of achieving

    Brazil must be in a panic. They burned down huge amounts of Amazon jungle and forest for increasing soybean farming for supplying China with previously American soybean crops. Surely, if America has won the tariff war China will stop buying soybeans from Brazil and once again buy American soybeans. Just because Brazil can produce and sell them for less doesn't mean the Chinese will continue buying soybeans from Brazil.

    China has a large population, I am sure they will buy both

    but then again there is no agreement right now and if Brazil was smart they will a deal done real quick and probably cheaper
