Wall St slips on US-China trade talk uncertainty; energy falls

The White House said in a statement Monday that "the president and his entire administration are committed to ending decades of unfair and illegal trading practices that harm our farmers, workers and many other parts of the US economy".

"This was not a quid pro quo or anything else", he added.

Mr. Trump this month ordered a review of the ZTE ban in response to a personal request by Mr. Xi, who said the ban was risking 70,000 jobs.

China has been one of the top buyers of US crude exports since Washington lifted a 40-year ban on shipments in late 2015.

Over the weekend, both pledged to keep talking about how China could import more energy and farm commodities from the United States so as to narrow the $335-billion annual trade deficit in USA goods and services with China, although details and a firm timeline were thin.

On Tuesday President Trump told reporters that he wasn't happy with the progression of the talks as he sat beside South Korean President Moon Jae-in and spoke of a perceived change in tenor from North Korea after the nations' leaders held a second surprise meeting with Chinese leaders in China.

After three days of talks, the Trump administration said it was holding off on imposing new tariffs on China.

Another Commerce, Science and Transportation member, Richard Blumenthal, said he hopes "the president will be tougher and more effective".

"It looks like this is going to be a case where they'll have some minor tweaks and declare a victory and move onto the next case", said Washington lawyer Douglas Jacobson, who represents ZTE suppliers. This could well turn into a bit of a disaster for the Trump administration. Exports are straining USA pipeline and port capacity, and may be reaching a limit until capacity expansion underway are completed, one of the sources said. The Senate measure, introduced by Sen.

Mr Trump said the current penalty, which led ZTE to halt major operations, has hurt USA firms that sell to it. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md.

Meanwhile, China made few concessions to the USA concerns about intellectual property theft and government subsidies that triggered the stand-off.
