Kudlow hints US could drop December tariffs

If phase-one talks with China go well, the United States could take off the tariffs scheduled for December, Director of the National Economic Council Larry Kudlow told Fox Business on Monday.

He described the state of play in the ongoing trade negotiations between the two nations as "looking pretty good" and stressed that the issues of human rights form an "important part" of the talks.

Earlier, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross stressed that the phase-one deal should be done "right" and not as early as possible, even though President Donald Trump previously claimed that the agreement should be "easy to sign" in November.
