Former Reagan economist Art Laffer joined FOX Business’ “Making Money with Charles Payne” on Monday to discuss how signing phase one of the China trade deal will impact the U.S. and global economy.

"China is our natural trading partner in this world," he told FOX Business' Cheryl Casone.

Laffer said this deal is the “first step” toward a great relationship with China.

“If there were ever two countries that could get the gains from trade, it's the United States and China,” he said.

Laffer said China, the U.S. and "the rest of the world" will all benefit from this trade deal.

"It's a win-win for everyone," Laffer said.
