House Republicans confronted two of President Trump's top economic advisers on trade on Thursday, while also breathing a sigh of relief after the administration's decision to begin easing tensions with Europe a day earlier. By authorizing these payments, the Trump Administration is effectively acknowledging the economic harm caused both by tariffs and the retaliation they invite. Traders yesterday were fairly quick to discount the comments of Europe buying big amounts of US soybeans.

Michael Brown, a former Symantec CEO and Pentagon adviser, testified to the committee about specific areas where the Chinese government appears to have already comprised US national security.

The US$2.6 billion in deals have made the past week the busiest week since mid-June.

Trump said he "opened up Europe for you farmers", to a crowd in Iowa on Thursday.

Sacha Chorley, portfolio manager at Quilter Investors, commented: "The Trump-Juncker meeting was a potential tipping point that could have prompted the fledgling trade war to spiral into something more damaging".

More action will be needed before it will be safe to conclude that the risk of trade war is receding, and that Trump is beginning to see the benefits of global commerce.

Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin also praised Trump and his policies for Friday's good news during an interview on "Fox News Sunday", saying he expected to see sustained economic growth over the next several years.

Trump offered to eliminate all trade barriers - and his supposedly pro-free-trade allies passed.

The Trump administration has imposed tariffs on $34 billion worth of goods from China.

U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, a Lehigh County Republican, was among those unhappy with that solution. On Wednesday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced a $12 billion financial aid package to help them.
