While House Democrats were busy sanctimoniously walking to the other side of the Capitol to deliver the article of impeachment to the Senate, President Trump was in the White House signing phase one of a trade deal with China, officially beginning the wind-down of the years-long trade war. Despite this positive economic step that would bring relief to many Americans, CBS and NBC saw fit to downplay it and criticize the President’s praise for the deal.

CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell couldn’t have sounded more disinterested in the trade deal as she reported on it for a fleeting 21 seconds:

Today, President Trump hailed a partial trade agreement with China that aims to ease tensions with the world's second-largest economy. China has agreed to buy $200 billion in U.S. goods over the next two years, and will stop requiring U.S. firms to share technology as the price of doing business in China. In return, the U.S. will lower tariffs on some Chinese goods.

The report from correspondent Tom Costello over on NBC Nightly News was actually critical of President Trump’s praise of the deal during a press conference.
