White House China hawk Peter Navarro excluded from China trade talks

China US Trade

Navarro also "blew up" at Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin during a trip to China according to news website Axios.

Later, Senate Finance Committee Chair Orrin Hatch, a Republican, sounded a more pessimistic tone over a deal to avert tariffs after he met with Liu. "It was really the beginning of what I think is going to be a lengthy process", he said.

"China has seen our demands". Hoping that the talks would result in the fair deal, Ross said, "But if that does not happen, a trade tit-for-tat will not be economically life-threatening to the US".

The president surprised many in Washington over the weekend by saying he's working with Xi to help ZTE "get back into business, fast".

Rubio said the Chinese telecom companies are "agents of the Chinese government".

Ahead of the meetings, Liu, who is China's top economic official, told us lawmakers on Wednesday that he would work hard to address the U.S.

Brady and Hatch said the issue of ZTE didn't come up during Liu's meetings with lawmakers. The two are seen here in March at a White House ceremony with Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, second from left, and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer.

Bloomberg reports that White House trade adviser Peter Navarro has been cut out of talks in part because of recent behavior that was described as erratic and unprofessional.

U.S. President Donald Trump waves to the news media after returning on Marine One after visiting first lady Melania Trump at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center from the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, U.S., May 15, 2018. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity. -China trade talks that get under way in Washington on Thursday, a senior USA official said on Wednesday.

"ZTE not only violated US sanctions law (by selling USA telecoms equipment to Iran and North Korea), but then repeatedly lied about steps it would take to remedy the problems", the senators said. But another senior White House official said that while the three men won't be part of the official delegation, they will participate in the negotiations.

The talks are aimed at defusing a trade war. In retaliation to that China threatened to impose a 25% tariff on $50 billion worth of USA exports. "Second, the US has high tech products that can be exported to China", he said.

"His hope for this trip was to begin to address the trade imbalance, increasing demand of Chinese consumers for US products as well as to begin to take steps on the structural reforms that have been raised", Brady said after a roughly 45-minute meeting with the Chinese delegation. "The vice premier stated that he was here to listen to our concerns and he recognizes there are problems in this trade relationship".

On Wednesday, his name wasn't on a Treasury Department list of USA officials who will meet with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He and the rest of the Beijing delegation at Treasury on Thursday and Friday.

They also discussed the issue of increasing U.S. trade exports to China, bilateral trade service, two-way investment, protection of intellectual property rights and imbalanced tariff rates.
