What is the G20 Summit?
President Trump said Monday that the Federal Reserve's policies have been "very destructive" to the USA, complaining that Chinese President Xi Jinping's control of the country's central bank gives that country an unfair advantage.
Brilliant said they threaten the health of the U.S. economy, hurt farmers and consumers, and create an unstable atmosphere for the US' trading partners.
The president criticized the US Federal Reserve for raising interest rates too quickly and giving the Chinese an upper hand in trade negotiations.
When asked if he viewed Chinese telecom giant Huawei as a national security threat or leverage in trade negotiations with China, Trump said it could be both.
Last month he threatened to slap tariffs on a further $300 billion of goods - virtually everything American companies import from China - if no breakthrough is achieved. It also wants curbs on subsidies for Chinese state-owned enterprises and better access for USA firms to Chinese markets.
He also said the dust-off with Mexico situation might send the wrong message to China in that the Trump administration, even if it makes a trade deal like the USMCA, might still renege on its commitments and hold tariffs over their heads in the future.
He also said the Chinese regime devalues its currency and subsidizes companies in order to lessen the effect of US tariffs imposed on its goods.
"Those companies are going to move into other locations and there won't be a tariff", he said. But EU officials have said repeatedly they will not discuss agriculture. "And China will, in my opinion, based on a lot of facts and a lot knowledge, China's going to make a deal because they're going to have to make a deal".
Trump's tariff rattling has spooked global markets and also run into pushback from many in Congress.
An emboldened President Trump said Monday that his tariff threat forced Mexico to strike a border deal, and he vowed that China will be the next target brought to heel by weaponization of access to the US economy.
The United States kicked off a tariff battle with China in 2018, seeking sweeping structural changes from Beijing.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) also recently concluded that US tariffs have had a "significant" impact on China, causing the IMF to lower its forecast for China's future growth.
No talks are planned in Beijing or Washington before the Osaka event, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told reporters over the weekend.
