USA to consider raising tariffs on Chinese cars to 40%: USTR

South Africa views the G20 as providing meaningful opportunities for advancing global governance reforms and reorienting the worldwide developmental agenda. On Wednesday, Argentine legal authorities took initial action to consider a request from Human Rights Watch to prosecute him for alleged crimes against humanity, a move apparently aimed at embarrassing him as he attends the summit. Trump didn't discuss dedicated gaming hardware specifically, but he did comment on the potential for a hike in iPhone prices. Just $5 a month.

Trump is expected to pose for the usual "family photo" with the other world leaders gathered in Buenos Aires. "But on the other hand, if these conditions I mentioned a few moments ago are not met and not dealt with the president has said, look, he's perfectly happy to stand on his tariff policies". In addition, he said other countries share the USA concerns over China's trade practices.

Trump's insistence on escalating the trade war could provoke China to respond by targeting Apple with penalties, Bernstein's Tony Sacconaghi said on CNBC. All of the worrying predictions of negative effects, he claimed, "have turned out to be false... we're taking in billions of dollars". He declined to say what other USA officials will join Trump in the session.

Still, some Democratic lawmakers want Trump - even if deals aren't likely - to make clear to Xi that he is willing to try to create an environment under which reaching an agreement might be more feasible.

Roughly an hour earlier, he had told reporters he would probably meet with Putin at the summit and said it was "a very good time to have the meeting". "We have briefed the Prime Minister's Office on the current state of play the World Trade Organization where multiple challenges to India's subsidy program have been launched by U.S. authorities even as it spearheads efforts to deny a permanent solution to the question of public stockholding of foodgrains", a Commerce Department official said.

"If we don't make a deal, then I'm going to put the US$267 billion additional on" at a tariff rate of either 10 per cent or 25 per cent, Mr Trump told the Journal. Could they not authorize new phones for sale in the country? "If we do not show concrete progress, our worldwide meetings become useless and even counterproductive", he said.

In what was billed as a major policy speech on October 4, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence escalated Washington's trade-driven pressure campaign, highlighting Chinese military and industrial espionage activity and accusing China of "malign" efforts to undermine Trump in the November 6 mid-term congressional elections.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday that the meeting is on and that Russian Federation has not received "any other information from our USA counterparts". "It is called the 'chicken tax,"' Trump said on Twitter Wednesday. For one thing, China is not keen to upend its entire government-centered development strategy simply to please Trump.

PM Modi's meeting with the UN Secretary General is significant in the context of the importance that both the leaders attach to the issue of climate change.

White House insiders say there remain substantial differences within the Trump administration over how far to push China.
