Another serious examination of the Chinese water situation with a very different conclusion: no imminent water crisis.

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/05/20/mnuchin-china-trade-war-598481 

Vice Premier Liu He and his top economic team leave D.C. after several days of negotiations with Administration officials: here is one of many reports on what emerged.  Readers will be forgiven if the have trouble determining whether anything meaningful actually resulted, but perhaps time will tell.

The swirling goulash of Administration verbiage and actions on China trade sanctions.

A by now well established American journalist, in the “Opinion” zone, blasts Trump for reversing course on ZTE, and goes on to portray a gigantic US-Chinese struggle in which one concession to a Chinese demand portends much larger U.S. strategic losses.  No mention of the list of demands the Administration laid on the table as they left Beijing a week or so earlier.
