CHINA/TRADE DEALS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Trump has shifted his stance on the unrest in Hong Kong in recent days to show greater solidarity with the pro-democracy protesters after coming to view the issue as a point of leverage in trade negotiations with China. For months, Trump administration officials described the Hong Kong uprising as an internal matter for China, aware of how delicate the issue is for President Xi Jinping and other Communist Party officials. With tensions already high between the two nations and trade talks stalled, the administration chose to tread lightly. But as the protests have dragged on, advisers to Mr. Trump have succeeded in making the case that wading into the issue could prove necessary — and advantageous — to the United States as it tries to push Beijing to accede to its trade terms. After previously saying Hong Kong was a ‘very tough situation’ that was up to Chinese leaders to handle, Mr. Trump has more recently called on those leaders to offer a ‘humane’ response and urged Mr. Xi to engage in dialogue with the protesters.”

ECONOMY/G7/TRADE DEALS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump will make a trade offensive when he meets with leaders of G-7 countries this weekend in France, where he plans to pressure the host nation to repeal a controversial new tax on U.S. tech giants and demand that India lower tariffs, senior administration officials said Thursday [8-22-19]. On top of that, the G-7 leaders gathering in Biarritz, France, will convene Sunday [8-25-19] for a special session on the global economy — a discussion the Trump administration requested specifically…Trump already has one-on-one meetings scheduled with the leaders of the United Kingdom, France, Japan, India, Germany and Canada, the officials said. When Trump meets with French President Emmanuel Macron, he will bring up his opposition to France’s new digital services tax, a measure the U.S. views as targeting major U.S. tech companies like Google and Facebook, the officials said. Trump has threatened to hit back by imposing tariffs on French imports, including wine, and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative has begun an investigation of the tax that could provide a legal basis for U.S. retaliation.”
