At the signing ceremony at the White House, U.S. President Donald Trump called the agreement „an important step ever made with China toward a future of fair and reciprocal trade with China.“ Chinese Vice President Liu He, meanwhile, sent a message from Chinese President Xi Jinping, who hailed the trade deal as a sign that the two countries could settle their differences through dialogue. For Mr. Trump and other supporters, the approach to past trade agreements, which has allowed the outsourcing of businesses and led to the loss of jobs and industries. Critics say this is the kind of controlled trade that the United States has long criticized, particularly with regard to China and its control over its economy. The United States is a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the Marrakesh Agreement establishing the World Trade Organization (WTO) contains rules for trade among the 154 members of the WTO. The United States and other WTO members are currently participating in the WTO negotiations on development in Doha and a strong and open Doha agreement on both goods and services would go a long way in managing the global economic crisis and restoring the role of trade in promoting economic growth and development. In a message to Trump, Chinese President Xi Jinping said the agreement was „beneficial to China, the United States and the world.“ Xi also said the agreement shows that both countries can find appropriate and effective solutions to problems „on the basis of equality and mutual respect through dialogue and consultation.“ The atmosphere as a result was a mixture of relief, after the roundtables and consultations that followed all the tired parties and the companies worried or losses. The most important aspect of signing some kind of agreement was, therefore, the sense of avoidance of a deadlock or lingering uncertainty and the sense of moving towards more constructive changes in the way the two countries do business, including among themselves. Soybeans are a good example of the anti-Trump reaction to trade policy.
