China deal greatest, biggest ever for our farmers - Trump

In a series of tweets on Saturday, US President Donald Trump hailed the partial trade agreement sealed with China yesterday, saying that it will be the most beneficial for American farmers, in addition to the benefits it would bring to the technology, finance and aviation sectors of the US economy.

"The deal I just made with China is, by far, the greatest and biggest deal ever made for our Great Patriot Farmers in the history of our Country. In fact, there is a question as to whether or not this much product can be produced? Our farmers will figure it out. Thank you China! Other aspects of the deal are also great - technology, financial services, 16-20 Billion in Boeing Planes etc., but WOW, the Farmers really hit pay dirt! @ChuckGrassley @joniernst @debfisher @BenSasse Thank you to all Republicans in Congress for your invaluable help!"

The so-called "phase one" agreement announced on Friday partially settles some of the pending issues, such as transparency in foreign exchange and the highly-contested technology transfers. It will be drafted in the next five weeks, the US president stressed, announcing that phase two would start "almost immediately" upon the completion of phase one.
