So, is this what trump meant when he asked the Chinese to help him get re-elected?  I wonder what he promised them?

Sales are nice.

But I’d reserve “huge” for something that suggests a change in the game.

I hope everyone realizes that with the Chinese agreement to purchase $40 billion worth from the U.S. , they could buy our entire soybean production for one year. It certainly won’t happen . But that......,would be huge!

If the ChiComs just started paying for the intellectual property that they now steal, would $40 Billion cover even that?

Yes, probably. However I’m pretty sure they would want some of their money from the US.  27 trillion and counting
