China and US Agree to Temporary Relief on Tariffs

On the sidelines of the G20 summit held in Argentina, U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed on a deal to hold off on tariff increases for 90 days. President Trump also claimed that China would cut tariffs on U.S. made cars, despite Chinese officials refusing to respond to such claims.  Although this may seem like a short term victory, many critics wonder if real long term solutions will be underway following the 90 day mark.
