For his eighth tweet of the day, the President of the United States decided to share what he believes is good news.

He tweeted:

‘China just agreed that the U.S. will be allowed to sell beef, and other major products, into China once agfain. This is REAL news!’

According to The Washington Post:

‘The Trump administration has reached new deals with China to ease market access for a variety of industries, including beef and financial services, as the White House makes progress on trying to soften economic barriers between the two sides.’

The news of the agreement follows a meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and President Trump last month.

According to critics, however, the news is anything but impressive. Arthur Kroeber, managing director of an economic research firm in Beijing called Gavekal Dragonomics, told The Post:

‘China has made a few modest concessions that cost it very little, in areas strategically picked to maximize the political benefit to Trump. But the substantive impact on US-China trade and investment flows is pretty minimal.’

Not to rain on Trump’s parade or anything, but the news may not be as “real” as he thought.
