President Donald Trump said on Thursday that China is not living up to its promise to increase the purchase volume of U.S. products.
This item was one of the compromises reached in June in the bilateral negotiations between the two countries that had been stalled since May.
“Mexico is doing great at the border, but China is letting us down in that they have not been buying products from our great farmers that they said they would,” President Trump said in a tweet.
At a meeting between President Trump and the leader of the Chinese regime, Xi Jinping, at the G20 summit in June, the United States pledged not to impose new tariffs on Chinese imports worth $350 billion.
In addition, President Trump explained that they discussed Chinese purchases of U.S. agricultural products.
“China is going to buy a lot of food and agricultural products, and they will start doing so very soon, almost immediately,” the president said after the meeting.
However, the Beijing regime is not fulfilling its part of the deal, as revealed by President Trump, who said he hopes “they will start soon,” without specifying what the consequences will be if this does not happen.
