Donald Trump Optimistic On US-China Trade Negotiations
President Donald Trump gave an upbeat assessment of ongoing talks between U.S. and Chinese officials, Thursday, October 10.
Senior negotiators from the U.S. and China sit down Thursday for another round of trade talks in an atmosphere of uncertainty about the likely outcome.
Over the past week, rhetoric and action from both sides seemed to make the chance of any substantive progress in resolving the punishing trade war appear slim.
Early Thursday though, after expressing ambivalence about the end results of the negotiations, President Donald Trump made a surprise announcement via Twitter that he and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He would be meeting at the White House on Friday.
