The White House has said it will address additional issues in a second phase two deal, but analysts say they expect nothing concrete in the near future. The administration also discussed with Japan and Europe how to deal with subsidies. Ms. Vetter said that the agreement was surprisingly reciprocal in this area and that he had granted concessions that China wants to deal with more securely to the United States. The China-Australia Free Trade Agreement (FTA) officially entered into force on December 20, 2015. Once fully implemented, 96% of Australian products will arrive in China duty-free, while 100% of Chinese exports to Australia will be processed duty-free. The president`s approach could pay off politically. He will embark on a re-election campaign with China`s commitment to strengthen its intellectual property protection, make large purchases of U.S. products and follow other economic changes that will benefit the U.S. economy. On August 14, 2019, the Dow fell 800 points, in part due to rising trade tensions between the United States and China.  Nine days later, on August 23, the Dow fell 623 points on the day Trump informally ordered U.S.
companies to immediately seek alternatives to do business in China.   At the end of 2019, stock markets reached record levels after increasing due to the agreement between the United States and China on the signing of the first phase of a trade agreement.   An analysis by the Peterson Institute for International Economics showed that in January 2018, before the start of the trade war, China imposed uniform tariffs of 8% on average on all its importers. By June 2019, tariffs on U.S. imports had risen to 20.7%, while tariffs on other countries had fallen to 6.7%.  The analysis also showed that average U.S. tariffs on Chinese products rose from 3.1% in 2017 to 24.3% in August 2019.  At the international level, the ultimate goal of the Trump administration`s trade war is to change China`s trade policy, while tariff enforcement and the negative economic effects of the trade war have been criticized. Among U.S. industries, U.S. companies and agribusinesses opposed the trade war, although most farmers continued to support Trump.
Some U.S. politicians disagree with Trump`s tactics, but most agree with the goal of putting pressure on China.  At the end of November 2019, none of the leading Democratic presidential candidates said he would eliminate tariffs, including Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren, both of whom agreed that the United States must deal with what it sees as China`s unfair trade policy.  Other senators from both parties have criticized Trump for the trade war, including Charles E. Grassley, Tim Kaine, Mark Warner, Elizabeth Warren, and Ron Wyden.  The China-Costa Rica Free Trade Agreement (FTA) came into force on 1 August 2011.
