The U.S. and China have partly agreed on how to deal with the tariffs already in place, Politico reported Wednesday.
The Trump administration will "immediately" remove a 10% tariff on a portion of the $200 billion worth of Chinese imports when a deal strikes, which is expected to be signed by the end of next week, Politico reported, citing one person familiar with the matter.
The 10% tariff on the rest of the Chinese goods will also be lifted "quickly," the person said. However, a 25% tariff the U.S. imposed on roughly $50 billion-worth of other Chinese goods will likely stay in place until after the 2020 election, according to the source.

President Donald Trump previously said he would use the existing tariffs as an enforcement tool, while China has been pushing for the removal of the duties as part of the deal.
