When it comes to the US-China trade war, there is no clear end in sight

And the US-China Business Council also pulled no punches in describing the current situation, saying it is disappointed that both the US and Chinese governments have chosen to escalate their battle rather than set a date for a new negotiating round to work through their differences. “Things are moving in the wrong direction on these issues,” it said. “More tariffs will not persuade either government to change their positions and will exacerbate the damage being done to American companies and farmers that do business with China. Negotiation is the only way to get these issues back on the right track.”
