President Trump: We’re looking for a complete deal. I’m not looking for a partial deal. China has been starting to buy our agricultural product. If you noticed over the last week — and actually, some very big purchases.
But that’s not what I’m looking for; we’re looking for the big deal. We’ve taken it to this level. We’re taking in billions and billions of dollars of tariffs. China has devalued their currency and they’re putting out a lot of money into their curren- — into their — into their economy.
Hi, I looked for the meaning of take in, and a dictionary says:
to accept something as real or true
He still hasn’t really taken in his father’s death. Macmillan
Is the meaning I found is correct in this case?
And if so, does it mean the U.S. has to accept the billions dollars of tariffs from China? I know it's related with the economy, but I'd like to know just the meaning of the phrase.
