According to a report by Reuters, on Sunday, an influential Chinese Communist Party journal said that the United States has underestimated China's will to fight a trade war and Beijing is prepared for a long economic battle. The commentary in the ideological journal Qiushi, or Seeking Truth, said that China would not give way on major principles in its negotiations with the United States on ending the dispute. The article reportedly read, “China will not be afraid of any threats or pressure the United States is making that may escalate economic and trade frictions. China has no choice, nor escape route, and will just have to fight it out till the end."
