Trump conveyed the message in a series of tweets on Sunday that also suggested he could hold a near-term meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, perhaps as soon as next month, in order to conclude the months-long negotiations.
“I am pleased to report that the U.S. has made substantial progress in our trade talks with China on important structural issues including intellectual property protection, technology transfer, agriculture, services, currency, and many other issues,” Trump said in a tweet. He added: “Assuming both sides make additional progress, we will be planning a Summit for President Xi and myself, at Mar-a-Lago, to conclude an agreement. A very good weekend for U.S. & China!”
