Dow drops 400 points after Trump says trade war could drag

Several sources familiar with Beijing's stance told Reuters News Agency that the bill could jeopardise the so-called "phase one" trade deal that is already fraught with disagreements and complications.

Trump has readied an additional 15 percent tariff on about $156 billion of Chinese goods set for December 15, but there is little sign that the "phase one" deal announced in October will take place beforehand. "I don't think it's up to if they want to make it, it's if I want to make it".

Ross said he was optimistic about a fruitful trade negotiation with Beijing, given the economic problems in China, "particularly the hollowing out of supply chains". But sources familiar with the talks say the two sides are still wrangling over the details including whether existing USA tariffs on Chinese goods will be removed and how much in additional United States agricultural products China will buy.

Adding that Trump's downplaying of a deal yesterday should not be understood to mean that talks are stalling as he was "speaking off the cuff". "I watch jobs. Jobs are what I watch; I watch making the proper deal", he said.

"In some ways, I like the idea of waiting until after the election for the China deal, but they want to make a deal now and we'll see whether the deal's gonna be right - it's gotta be right", Trump told reporters in London, where he was attending a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, adding that he has "no deadline" to complete an agreement.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard expects to be told "very soon" whether the club's transfer ban has been lifted. They were also fined 600,000 Swiss francs. "He won the ball back in good areas", Lampard said.

She did not elaborate on what the measures might be. The firm's ability to purchase parts from US companies has been seriously hampered by its placement on a US Department of Commerce blacklist, requiring companies to obtain special licenses prior to the sale. "That's why I think when France makes a statement like they made about North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, that's a very risky statement for them to make". The move appears to factor in Mr. Trump's threat to expand tariffs beyond imports from China.

Vice Foreign Minister Qin Gang made "stern representations" to William Klein, the U.S. embassy's minister counselor for political affairs, and urged the USA to stop interfering in China's domestic affairs, state TV reported. "We've had some very good benefits from that", Ross told Reuters in NY. "We've been accepting the lopsidedness of things", Ross said. Trump has said he has no intention of doing so.

World Uyghur Congress spokesman Dilxat Raxit said the House Bill was an important action opposing "China's continued push of extreme persecution" and that the organisation looks forward to Mr Trump signing it into law.

"That's not a big deal, we can very well live without the port of Hong Kong", he said. Beijing said on Monday it banned USA military ships and aircraft from visiting the island and sanctioned several US-based nongovernment organisations.

Uighur and Kazakh activists have expressed solidarity with the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong. "China will harvest your home like Xinjiang - BE AWARE OR BE NEXT", read a piece of graffiti at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, the site of a days-long occupation by protesters.
