Trump's description of the China trade deal doesn't match the official White House version
President Donald Trump's assertions about the U.S.-China agreement to pause tariff escalations that emerged over the weekend do not appear to match the White House's official description of the agreement.
Following the conclusion of the G-20 summit in Argentina, the U.S. leader described the agreement brokered with Beijing as "one of the largest deals ever made." He said Chinese President Xi Jinping's government "will be opening up" and "getting rid of tariffs."
The White House, however, did not back up Trump's claims about China ending tariffs, but referred instead to a temporary agreement not to raise them further. And it gave little indication of China "opening up."
