Global stocks rose Friday in response to stronger-than-expected U.S. job growth and news that President Trump has agreed to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. On tariffs, "markets largely brushed aside confirmation that Trump was going ahead with his plan," and are now looking at which countries will be exempted, per the AP.
