President Trump, ‘Very Good Chance’ of a US-China Trade Deal
Tuesday, US President Donald Trump said the United States would likely reach a trade agreement with China and that officials from both sides would sit down for negotiations in a few days.
China has said it will welcome a visit by US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who is seeking to resolve a tense trade dispute between the world’s 2 largest economies after President Trump threatened to impose tariffs on Chinese imports.
“China’s very serious, and we’re very serious,” President Trump told reporters, adding that Secretary Mnuchin would travel to China as part of a delegation requested by Beijing. “We’ve got a very good chance at making a deal.”
President Trump, speaking at the White House following a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron, also said the United States was engaged in serious trade talks with the EU, adding that US-France trade relations were very good.
“I would rather deal just with France,” he said.
President Trump also said negotiations with Mexico and Canada over the North American Free Trade Agreement(NAFTA) were proceeding “very nicely.”
