Trump scheduled talks with Xi Jinping during G20 summit
U.S. President Donald Trump said he expected to talk with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Group of 20 summit in Osaka, Japan to be held on June 28-29.
Trump said earlier he was ready to impose another round of punitive tariffs on Chinese imports if he does not reach a trade deal with China’s president at the G20, Reuters reported.
Negotiations between China and the United States on a trade deal have stalled since talks broke down in early May, with both sides blaming the other.
Shortly afterward, the Trump administration raised tariffs to 25% on $200 billion of Chinese goods. Beijing responded by raising tariffs on $60 billion of U.S. exports and escalating its anti-American propaganda.
