Trump Says ‘Good Chance’ U.S. Reaches Trade Deal With China

President Trump said Thursday that trade negotiations with China were going well but that no final agreement would be reached until he meets face-to-face with President Xi Jinping to resolve longstanding differences.

Mr. Trump, in a series of morning Twitter posts, said there was “good intent and spirit” on both sides of the talks. He asserted that China wanted to make a deal so that the United States does not increase tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese imports on March 2, as Mr. Trump has threatened. In comments made at the White House on Thursday, Mr. Trump said that if an agreement with China is reached, it will be “by far the biggest trade deal ever made.” Mr. Trump added that “I think it has a very good chance of happening.”
