Larry Kudlow: 

We expect China’s auto tariffs to go to ‘zero’


After signing the trade deal that will replace NAFTA at the 
G20 Summit in Argentina last week, President Trump held 
breakthrough talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping that 
could reshape American trade for a generation.

“President Xi and I want this deal to happen,
” President Trump tweeted today.

Another huge point of concern for President Trump is Chinese auto tariffs on American cars, currently set at a staggering 40 percent. That topic was a key point of discussion during the two leaders’ working dinner.

Larry Kudlow, Director of the National Economic Council, 
said that while a specific deal would need to be negotiated, 
Presidents Trump and Xi reached an “understanding” 
in Argentina that China’s 40 percent tariffs would soon disappear. 
“We expect those tariffs to go to zero,” Kudlow said—adding that America will know soon whether China is serious about an agreement.
