He said that the agreement between the two trade giants is already pacing up. A lot of other improvement is yet to be made but the situation dictates of a positive future. It is the Chinese who need to be aware of the great potential lying in the US and come up with a good deal, said Hassett during the interview with CNN. Hassett also presented the data of the Chinese economic growth rate at a speed of 6.6% in the year 2018 which has been the slowest in two decades. The economic advisor said that the GDP of the US will definitely be affected by the partial government shutdown. This impact could be a zero growth if the shutdown continued till the first quarter of 2019.

The government shutdown has marked the rise of private sector leaders like Jamie Dimon, the CEO in JPMorgan. He discussed the results of the partial shutdown of the government with the investors.
