Just $5 a month. President Donald Trump's administration has made clear it does not want to torpedo the longstanding USA relationship with Riyadh, however. He also reiterated that China has not made any "meaningful" offers to address broader USA trade concerns.
Given that Trump doesn't appear to understand the issues, and China isn't going to surrender its aspirations, there is little reason to be optimistic about the outcome of the Trump dinner with Xi Jinping.
"If we can see either a pause or a deal on the trade war this coming week, as well as some type of agreement between Russian Federation, the United States and Saudi.that's the basis of our call here", Corrie said.
Global politicians in attendance include British Prime Minister Theresa May, French President Emmanuel Macron, Russia's Vladimir Putin, US President Donald Trump and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
"There's a good possibility that we can make a deal, and he is open to it", Kudlow said. "And everybody hopefully will be very happy, including China".
Higher auto tariffs on China would have a limited impact. All of the worrying predictions of negative effects, he claimed, "have turned out to be false... we're taking in billions of dollars".
There have been a number of underlying risks that have contributed to the recent wobbles in financial markets and this weekend, we could see some real progress in one key area.
When asked about China-US trade and business developments, Gao said China has repeatedly stressed that the essence of bilateral economic and trade cooperation is to reach win-win results.
And, according to Trump, "the brunt of it is being paid by China".
"We are in a position to deal with it and handle it very well", he said.
The United States and China have in the coming week what may be their last chance to broker a ceasefire in an increasingly risky trade war when their presidents meet in Buenos Aires.
All of these issues - in addition to a long list of concerns from the USA on cyber activities, foreign interference and more - make any comprehensive deal out of reach in the coming months.
"We urge you to stand firm against China if meaningful concessions are not made", the lawmakers wrote.
The G20 countries are - Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States and the European Union.
Approximately half of all Chinese imports to the USA have been subject to a 10 percent tariff since September, but if upcoming trade negotiations between the United States and China don't work out, the tariffs could be expanded to all imported goods from China. First, the Trump administration's tougher approach to China - while often crude in its articulation (especially on trade) - is grounded in long-standing bipartisan concerns about Beijing's behaviour and its effect on the U.S. and its allies in the region.
Three days before a U.S.
On the trade war front, White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow said on Tuesday trade talks between the US and China have been heating up ahead of the summit. This is not least that expanding financial services to China won't bring home the low-skilled manufacturing jobs that appeal to his base, and in fact could even facilitate USA businesses shifting capacity to China.
While the Putin meeting now appears off, Trump is still slated to sit down with President Xi Jinping on the G20 margins to press for wholesale reform of the world's second-biggest economy in favor of access for United States companies.
With a president as mercurial as Trump, nothing is impossible.
