Trump says China's Xi wants a deal to end escalating trade war

  • Трамп США еще могут заключить сделку с Китаем

"I think we'll make a deal with China, and I think it will be a very fair deal for everybody, but it will be a good deal for the United States".

Washington- US President Donald Trump on Thursday held a "very good conversation" with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, a talk by phone with a "heavy emphasis" on trade during which they discussed the possibility of a bilateral meeting during the G20 summit in Argentina in late November. "We are having very good discussions with China".

Chinese state media said Trump also expressed support for a conference in Shanghai next week that Xi is using to promote the country as an import destination.

President Trump said that if a deal is not made with China, he could impose tariffs on another $267-B in Chinese imports into the United States, adding that China's economy had "been hit very hard" by previous U.S. tariffs.

The Trump administration on Monday took action to cut off a Chinese state-backed semiconductor maker from U.S. exports of components, software and technology goods.


Earlier Friday, the Chinese foreign ministry said Trump and Xi had an "extremely positive" phone conversation Thursday. "They are very willing to make a deal", said trump.

News signaling improvements in US-China ties, in turn buoying the markets, would provide the president a chance to vie for support in midterm elections on Tuesday that will decide whether the Republicans keep control of Congress.

TRUMP and Xi Jinping expressed optimism ahead of meeting later this month in Argentina, with the USA leader saying his Chinese counterpart wants to make a deal to end an escalating trade war.

Trump has railed against the USA trade imbalance with China since his presidential campaign, and his administration has grown increasingly vocal about calling out alleged corporate espionage and intellectual property theft by Chinese entities.

The two leaders agreed the trade dispute "should be handled properly through substantial consultation", Lu said.
