Welles Orr commented on conflicting strategic ambitions that drive the course of months-long trade negotiations between U.S. and China. "You have to keep in mind that this calculation for this administration is all about delivering on commitments and winning. That's who the president is. That's how he operates, that's how he thinks, and that's how he's got his team in the administration to think," Orr said, and urged being mindful when assessing progress between the U.S. and China.
