On Monday, President Trump stated that it was “not the right time” for a trade deal with China.
“We’re working very much with other countries. China is one. They want to talk. It’s just not the right time to talk right now, to be honest, with China,” Trump was quoted as saying in the Washington Examiner.
“It’s too one-sided for too many years for too many decades, and so it’s not the right time to talk,” he added. “But eventually, I’m sure that we will be able to work out a deal with China. In the meantime we’re doing very well with China.”
