“We’re going to win the fight,” President Trump told reporters. “We are having conversations with China, meetings are scheduled, calls are being made. I guess the meeting in September continues to be on, it has not been canceled,” he said.
The White House has not announced a date for that meeting.
Tariffs kick in on an additional $125-B in Chinese goods at the weekend, and President Trump said that had not been changed despite more conciliatory language between the 2 sides recently.
There will be no grace period on those tariffs for goods in transit, the US Customs and Border Protection agency said Friday.
“They are on as of Sunday,” President Trump said of the tariffs.
Both sides are maintaining effective communication, China’s Foreign Ministry said Friday.
Have a terrific weekend
