U.S. China appear reluctant on new tariffs Dec. 15th

Reports say the U.S. and China appear to be backing away
from new tariffs – even though President Trump has been insisting that Sunday, December 15th is the

December 15th tariffs would take effect. Just last week, Ross insisted tariffs would
be going up on both sides if a deal wasn’t reached by then.
And Friday, Trump’s economic adviser Larry Kudlow said there’s “no arbitrary deadline.”
