If U.S. President Donald Trump is the dealmaker he claims to be, he should use the upcoming G-20 summit in Buenos Aires to declare a win in his trade war with China before his bombast does any more damage to the global economy.The U.S. economy hasn't suffered significantly, but global growth is beginning to slow, and trade jitters are one reason.Some trading partners got exemptions, but the tariffs were reimposed on countries that Trump wanted to squeeze, such as Canada and Mexico.Trump evidently imagined that Section 232 tariffs would force Mexico and Canada to capitulate in revising NAFTA. The downside of Trump's trade isolationism is illustrated by the fact that the TPP is going ahead without the United States.In July, Trump imposed 25 percent tariffs on $34 billion in products, and then in September added another $200 billion after threatening tariffs on all Chinese products.Trump has pressured China with his usual threats and economic penalties.
