The President of the United States, Donald Trump, denied the breach of the trade agreement with China this Monday, assuring that it is “fully intact” after White House trade advisor Peter Navarro confirmed that “it is over” “
“The trade agreement with China is completely intact,” Trump said on his Twitter account, saying that he “hopes” that Beijing “will continue to comply with the terms of the agreement.”
In an interview with Fox News, Navarro found that the deal “ended” because of China’s role in the spread of the coronavirus pandemic that, according to consultants, led to the collapse of political and economic channels with the United States. .
Subsequently, Navarro indicated that these comments were “wrong” and that his words were “taken out of context”. In a statement to which the CNN television broadcaster had access, Navarro affirmed that his words “have nothing to do with phase 1 of the trade agreement that is still in effect”.
