It’s a deal! Just now, President Donald Trump and vice-premier Liu He of China just signed a 200 Billion Dollar trade agreement. The agreement is just the first step according to the President. The deal also includes significant intellectual property concessions by China

Heretofore, China had demanded companies doing business there, turn over their intellectual property as the price for doing so. China has now promised to stop that policy and moreover, identify and punish any of their people who steal IP.

This is another win for the President. For more background on how this has played out over time, check out the links below.
