President Donald Trump touted his two recent trade policies Sunday night at the American Farm Bureau Federation's annual conference, but his biggest applause line came when he went off script to talk about impeachment.
President Donald Trump's trade deal with China last week opened up export opportunities for American farmers, manufacturers and energy producers. The Phase One Trade Agreement requires structural reforms and other changes to China's economic and trade regime in the areas of intellectual property, technology transfer, agriculture, financial services, and currency and foreign exchange.
Biden: "I would leave troops in the Middle East"
The strike came after the US embassy in Baghdad was breached by a group of protesters who back pro-Iran Shia militia. Iraq is nominally an ally of Iran's , but maintains American troops at some of its bases, who Iran targeted.
Adoption of the continent-wide agreement comes less than a day after Washington and Beijing reached a separate partial deal, pausing a damaging trade war between the world's top two economies and letting farmers and businesses breathe a sigh of relief. Many trade experts say they worry that in the long run, Trump's relentlessly confrontational stance and eager embrace of tariffs could pose risks to both the US and global economies.

Additionally, a senior administration official told reporters on January 16 that China has not made any specific commitments to cut tariffs it has imposed on U.S. goods in retaliation. "I get impeached", he said. In the new deal, China is required to buy specific amounts of goods from the USA in an effort to boost the USA economy and positively contribute to the American agricultural sector.
Trump thanked the farmers in attendance for their, "fortitude, perseverance, and devotion", they showed in sticking with him while they were being targeted by China. That's what i get out of it.
Implementation Act (HR 5430) was approved in the US Senate by a vote of 89-10, sending it to the President.
