US, China Sign 'Phase One' Trade Deal

Summary from the AllSides News Team

The U.S. and China signed a preliminary part of a trade deal Wednesday morning. The deal reportedly focuses on negotiations, intellectual property theft, tariffs, and currency manipulation; China has also agreed to purchase $200 billion worth of US goods over the next two years. The plan for the deal's second phase remains unclear. Some outlets, many right-leaning, framed the deal as a victory for President Donald Trump in his trade war with China. Some left-rated reporting mentioned the deal's potential flaws more prominently.
