President Donald Trump’s poll campaign materials are being made in China and they face the prospect of tariffs while landing in America unless there are other arrangements.

It is making viral Trump news as the proponent of "America first" slogan with a hard line on China trade is making poll materials in China that too in a cost-saving manner.

According to reports, the red, white and blue banners for Trump’s 2020 election are ready for shipping and they are emblazoned “Keep America Great!”

Produced at eastern China’s Jiahao Flag company in Anhui province, the factory is witnessing brisk work to complete the order on Trump poll flags.

The Trump administration has declared tariffs on most imports from China excluding some electronic consumer items. That brings China made flags also under the ambit of tariffs.

A Reuters report said women are hemming the edges of “Trump 2020” flags having the size of beach towels while another batch is getting ready for delivery.

The factory has produced 90,000 banners since March, according to manager Yao Yuanyuan, who looked relieved at the large order received during the low season, which Yao attributed to the U.S-China trade war.

Yao said the buyers of Trump flags are based both in China and abroad. But she is not clear whether they are linked with Trump’s official campaign or supporters of the Republican Party.

Reminding oriental trading, Yao’s factory has been making Trump banners since Trump's poll tag line was finalized: “Make America Great Again.”

The China producer is selling the flags at a lowly price of about $1 per piece. She said sales had been better since 2015 until Trump’s China trade war took away the price advantage. She adds that if Trump continues the hard-line stance on China trade and slaps more tariffs, it could repel China suppliers like her company.

China seeks the removal of all tariffs before the deal

Meanwhile, on trade war news, reports said Beijing is flexing muscles and wanted complete removal of tariffs before signing the preliminary trade deal with the U.S.

China is reportedly emboldened by the successful conclusion of its military parade on Oct. 1 as part of the 70th anniversary of the People's Republic and the plenary session of the current Central Committee without any incidents.

Beijing is categorical that the U.S. must withdraw all tariffs imposed since July 2018 before signing any trade deal.

Trump hopes to sign the first phase of a trade deal in November. In a climbdown, Washington has set aside structural issues and moved the focus to steps China must take such as higher buying of American products to reduce the U.S. trade deficit with China, which bulged to $420 billion in 2018.

Under phase one deal China has to import U.S. liquefied natural gas, soybeans and other farm products, according to U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross. He added the deal would reduce trade war tensions and rebuild trust between the two sides.
