Over the weekend, at the G-20 meeting, President’s Trump and Xi meet to discuss the trade tensions/Trade War between the U.S. and China. The gist of the meeting was that the Trade War will take a pause for 90 days. The world financial markets are hoping that these two leaders can come to a longer-term agreement during that time frame and these trade tensions will de-escalate.
