When Donald Trump was a candidate for president, he made many campaign promises and in less than a year and a half, he has kept many of them despite opposition from Democrats and RINOs, hence most of his accomplishments were ones he negotiates and enacted on his own.
This week he kept a major promise by negotiating a deal with China to greatly reduce the 370 billion dollar trade deficit between the two countries, when China agreed to not only buy more goods from the United States, including food crops and manufactured goods but will also address the problem of China stealing the intellectual property of American companies. (Another campaign promise)

Reducing the United States’ trade deficit with China was a core campaign promise of President Donald Trump.
The announcement comes after Trump recently reaffirmed his stance on countering China’s improper trade practices.
“We have been ripped off by China, an evacuation of wealth like no country has ever seen before, given to another country that’s rebuilt itself based on a lot of the money they’ve taken out of the United States, and that’s not going to happen anymore,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office on Thursday.
This deal with China will be huge for the United States as every new purchase by China will result in growing the GDP and creating an untold number of jobs. This has been the priority of the Trump administration from early on. This deal destroys the liberal narrative that Trump would hurtle u into a trade war with China. Not only is there no war but the United States gained yuge concessions from the Chinese.
