He said Trump had decided on the postponement only after several company heads told him their contracts with Chinese suppliers were denominated in dollars, meaning they got no benefit from the weakening of the Chinese yuan and their orders ahead of the year-end holidays would be hard-hit.
His comments follow a rocky week in which concerns about a possible USA recession began to drive financial markets and seemed to put administration officials on edge about whether the economy would hold up through the 2020 presidential election campaign. In Sunday television interviews, he said that consumers are seeing higher wages and are able to spend and save more. "Let's not be afraid of optimism", Kudlow said. "Strategically, for the United States, it would be nice", he said at a press conference in New Jersey.
Many years ago, President Harry Truman (1944-53) also wanted to buy that island, Kudlow said.

For bond markets, the sort of movement Navarro described is often driven by trouble - in this case the possibility that the trade battle with China is lasting far longer than expected and becoming disruptive to business investment and growth.
Navarro vigorously rejected the notion that the tariff war is hurting American consumers - despite studies to the contrary by the International Monetary Fund, Harvard University and the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.
