It is just too early that no additional tariffs after 1st Jan '19!
US President Trump is known for his sudden drastic uninformed decision to upset anything without any reason.

Good observation!

That is not even an agreement in view of Trump's lack of credibility.

He has been known to adopt about-face decisions overnight.

And mind you that CCTV was not even carrying a picture of the meeting or the dinner until the next day -- which is VERY VERY unusual.

That means there is nothing really to celebrate about despite all the ballyhoo the day after the meeting.

The additional 265 billion dollars of Chinese goods on which Trump was threatening to levy tariffs are all basic-necesstiy goods that ordinary Americans need for their daily lives.

Levying those additional tariffs would mean the average American would have even less money to buy American-made goods with their disposable income, and the lower demand for the latter would mean the loss of more American jobs.

So he is thinking of new ways to squeeze the Chinese without losing those jobs leading to any further drop in his support base.

The lack of a photo on the same day of the meeting -- in contrast with the availability of those with other leaders --  is so VERY ODD indeed.

Talks with trump, what a joke, what a waist of time to talk to that man.
Human lives mean little when those in the WEST see a bigger gain through war
