China’s Vice Premier Liu He’s visit to Washington has been a major positive change for the US-China trade deal as leaders of both the economies have recently communicated optimism surrounding the progress and also upbeat about the result. However, President Trump expressed that several area are complicated to cover especially when it comes to technology and that they will not do it if it is not “great”.
