US will announce that China hasn’t lived up to Phase 1 trade deal on Monday – report

China has not lived up to pledge to purchase additional $200B in goods

US Trade Representative Katherine Tai will announce Monday that China
is not complying with the so-called phase one trade deal, sources familiar with
the matter told CNBC.

The report said Tai will outline how China has fallen short on a pledge to purchase an additional $200B in goods. They’ve only hit about 62% of the target. No doubt China will highlight the impact of the pandemic.

The report says the USTR is “evaluating potential actions against China for its non-compliance, including possible additional tariffs.”

The news of the announcement could weigh on sentiment Monday but I don’t expect the market to be overly concerned with a trade war.
